View Full Version : AR lower questions

03-20-2006, 1:03 AM
Okay I tried looking this up, but there's just too much information running around for the lowers so I have some specific questions:

1) If I were to purchase an off list AR lower, would I have to build it up before DOJ turns it into an AW, or can I just start stockpiling the lowers and register them after they're AWs?

2) I would like one in 9mm. Could I just purchase a conversion kit for it after it's an AW, or would I have to build it up specifically as a 9mm?

3) Well, I saw an answer for this but it might have been updated: are there any .308 lowers on the off list that are worth picking up?

Thanks, and please don't just refer me to the red faq on the top... I've gone through it already, just need clarification on some points.

1) No, Yes
2) Yes, No
3) Yes... American Spirit, Cobb... Vulcan if you just have to have a .308 and don't care...

Hope that helps! ;)

you assume that DOJ will list all these as AW - my bet is that never happens... just a gut feelings....
