I hope that you're not in CA and are not purchasing a complete rifle with an on-list, banned by name lower receiver...

See the list of lowers banned by name on the second page:

http://www.calguns.net/caawid/flowchart.pdf

If it says "DPMS" + "Panther" on the lower receiver, it's a definite NO GO.

You'll probably want to request pictures showing both sides of the lower receiver to make sure it isn't a banned lower receiver. The serial number won't guarantee that it isn't a banned lower nor does it guarantee that it doesn't say "DPMS" + "Panther" on the lower receiver either.
