    when you buy a lower receiver, they consider that the "gun" right?
    in other words, i have to buy that through an ffl dealer unlike the other parts? (upper reciever, etc.)

    That's correct the lower is the only part a 4473 has to be filled out on. You also have to be 21 to buy it.

    I am unsure of the age, but a lower receiver can be built into either a long gun or a "pistol" so that would make sense on the age of 21 restriction.

    true. didn't recall that. one more year than.....
    if one was going to buy a complete ar rifle, then you don't have to be 21 than right?
