You might check with BCM and G&R tactical and see if you can get BCM that way.
I believe it has to be entered as other...and you have to be 21

That's what the liberals decided.

Well, there are still two ways I can get one. I can either find one and get it through a private sell, or I can receive one as a gift.

Yeah sorry then looks like ur gonna have to get a complete one.

It's not so bad man, srsly the selection you can choose from is pretty vast. I think you can buy co
Complete lowers from some sources.

PSA has lots of choices to choose from, BCM DD Spikes also!

I already have some of the parts, so I really don't want to buy a complete one. They way I see it, I can do one of two things and still legally get it. I can either find one around here and buy it privately, or I can wait a few months until my B-day and get it as a gift (or before then if possible).
I think a complete lower still falls under this law. If not, I could just buy one, swap out the parts, and sell the parts that came with it.

I just bought 2 stripped lowers and they asked me what my intent was. I told em to build a rifle so they marked it as rifle and I walked out with em.

I have run into this a few times. I live in Oklahoma, but I'm working in Texas. I've tried to buy stripped lowers out of state a couple of times. Even if the gun dealer agrees to sell it to you, the background check will kick it out. I've also ran into this trying to buy a pistol grip shotgun out of state.

I've tried at two different dealers down here. The second time the background check guy told the gun dealer that he absolutely could not sell me a stripped or complete lower, only complete rifles. And at the San Antonio gun show it was clearly posted that lowers could be sold to Texas residents only. I have no problems buying a lower in Oklahoma, when you can find them.

Well, I finally got one. I ended up getting the PSA. I also picked up a couple of magazines, so I guess the stock's next.
