    I notice BATF has the new form of 4473.
    Also i read some articles or threads somewhere in the internet, that dealers or FFLs are required to report any individuals purchasing 2 or more firearms at at time. As a prevention of straw purchases or smuggling to the cartels.

    My question is,
    If i purchase 3 stripped lowers a time, will the FFL or my LGS report me to the BATF?

    On this article by BATF on lines 3 and 4 of A2. To my inderstanding, it doesn't apply to stripped receivers.

    So what do you guys say? Thank you

    The receiver is considered the gun.

    I haven't heard of a change. Got links to this, ok? You should be good with three lowers on one 4473.

    The recievers don't fall into that category.

    You are not purchasing a rifle. The category is "other". Which is why you cannot buy a stripped lower until you are 21. Rifles and shotguns, 18. All other, 21. It is not yet a fish nor a fowl- it could be built into a rifle OR a handgun.
