So there are NO legal requirements for an 80% lower based firearm?.....That means I can walk into a police station....explain exactly what I did and they will shrug and say have a nice day?

Why does this surprise you? There is no law against building your own rifle provided it complies with all laws.

TPS cover letter.

It only surprises me because we live in California......and our state firearms laws are....Not exactly intelligently designed.

Is it absolutely certain that there are no state laws that would make you a criminal if you built a functioning firearm based off an 80% finished lower?

I'm 17 and I built a fully functioning 10/22 off an 80%, does that surprise you? Yes it's good! Go for it already!

The only law to worry about is the zip-gun law and if you are making an AR, that's not an issue.

If you are making an AR pistol, you have to start as a dimensionally compliant single shot to go through the roster of not un-safe handguns exemption.

Of course don't make an "assault weapon" out of it.

I do have a friend in LAPD who would want to see it and make sure it's safe by taking it out for a weekend of shooting. :D
