Does anyone know the quality of the Ares Arms 80% receivers? They make 10/22 and 1911 frames as well. Thanks!
i believe you are probably correct on that. i gather from what i read that you can not machine them, turn them into a firearm and sell them. again, i believe the th intent to sell for gain is probably more accurate.I believe the BATF says that you cannot make the lower with the INTENT to sell it. You can sell it later down the line if you so desire just like any other person to person firearms sale. To make it with the INTENT to sell it makes you a manufacturer and therefore subject to all applicable BATF laws.
Honestly I've never bought one, but know that they run build parties for completion of ar 10/22 and 1911 80%ers a couple times a week. On a local forum that I also frequent, Calguns.net I've yet to see someone complain about the quality of of their products or their customer service.Does anyone know the quality of the Ares Arms 80% receivers?

One of the only ways to legally own an AR pistol here in Kommiefornia is to build one from an 80% lower. It was a pain in the ***, took a long time, and cost me a nice chunk of change. I did spread it out over 5 recievers (with a couple of my friends) I think the average price of each one out the door, was about $250. Not including about my time and labor. So ya,if you trying to stay under the grid as they say, it is a viable option.The people who I talk to about 80% lowers, want to get them because they are "OFF THE GRID". No BATF paperwork will make it harder for the government to take them in the event of a gun grab.
And honestly that's the only reason I've considered one myself.
