That's a good point. There is some confusion over whether the lower determines the legality of a rifle (pre-ban/post-ban status) or if the entire rifle -- upper and lower, stock, etc. -- had to be assembled as a unit prior to 1994.
Assuming it's the lower that determines that status of a rifle in NY, I wondered about getting it from WV to here. FTF sales are legal and require no FFL if the two parties are in the same county. I wasn't sure if there was an exception for immediate family selling or trading long guns who don't live in the same county.
