i just got busted by atf. nothing wrong with "assembling" them for personal use or for someone else that has their own parts. but assembling them (to sell) requires a manufactorer's license.

stupid, i agree but those are atf's words

When I first got my license I informed my inspector that I wanted to build custom 10/22's. I was informed that I could only purchase complete rifles and change the parts. Buying only 10/22 receivers and then building a rifle would count as manufacturing. I believe this to be true with AR lowers as well. This is why so many dealers sells kits along side built out lower receivers, but not as complete rifles.
