There like what $20 each , I think I saw some where . dont waste your time or money , getting someone to CNC that is going to cost you more than buying 10 finished ones. If its the lowers Im thinking of , there still going to have to be registered with a serial number . and im sorry I got the door slammed shut on your other thread due to my dumb whittedness

You won't need a serial number but...only you can machine it, finish it and own it.

Maybe someone can better explain this to me . So when you go buy a new gun from a dealer they don't register it in your name ? I thought this was a federal law ?
Now I understand that when you buy from a private individual it doesn't get done . But anytime a gun is built doesn't it require a serial number unless its for your own use and not resaleable ?

The serial number belongs to the gun, there is no list of registered weapons in the US...officially anyway. When you fill out the 4473 the form is only kept by the FFL and the purchase is recorded in his bound volume. Only if a gun is used in a crime is the serial number used to trace it's path of ownership. The BATF is prohibited by law from compiling a list of gunowners and guns owned.
