80% Lower FAQs

Private gun owners can turn to 80% lowers to reduce the work required for producing a workable firearm. However, to ensure that you produce quality work, it’s vital that you understand the subject matter.

What is an 80% Lower Receiver?

An 80% lower receiver is a portion of a firearm that needs to be completed with 20% work before it can be used in a functional weapon. Home gun builders use these incomplete components to make their own firearms from the comfort of their personal workshops.

Rifles and carbines, like the M16, M4, or AR-15, consist of two main systems: the upper receiver and the lower receiver. A lower receiver (or simply "a lower") typically consists of the grip, trigger mechanism (bolt, hammer, etc.), and stock of the weapon.

Is an 80% Lower Receiver a Firearm?

No, an 80 lower is not a firearm according to the ATF. However, some states have taken it upon themselves to pass legislation to limit the purchase, possession and transfer of 80% receivers which is stricter than the current federal regulations.

Please note that we are not attorneys so be sure to do your own research and stay apprised of all your state and local laws prior to completing a purchase.

The "80%" designation indicates that the lower is not a firearm because it’s missing 20% of the vital machining that it needs to operate as a firearm. An 80% lower receiver only becomes a firearm, by law, once the fire control cavity is milled out with an 80% lower jig.

Do I Need a License for an 80% Lower Receiver Kit?

No, buyers do not need any sort of license to purchase an 80 lower or any sort of 80 lower receiver kit. This is because 80 lowers are not legally considered as firearms which is why they can be purchased online and shipped directly to your front door!
