View Full Version : Re-manufacture/ re-print 80% lower

I know manufactures are allowed to take a completed lower, destroy it, and remanufacture that same lower with the same serial number. IE; damaged lower, send it off to get reprinted by manufacturer and they send it back to you.
-this is mainly in regards to the new AW ban (if passed), but still releavent regardless.
Can a non-manufacturer destroy a legally owned serialized lower, and re-print another, new lower with the same serial number?
-this would be mainly helpful if the new ban passes and one of our serialized 80% lowers gets damaged beyond repair.

If the damaged lower was factory made, the manufacturer owns that serial number. When you register, the manufacturer's name is part of the deal.

If you make a lower and add a serial number, and that is destroyed, replacing it with an identical part seems much less onerous.
