What problem is this do-it-yourself frame trying to solve?
<sarcasm>I suspect the problem of low bank balance for the maker</sarcasm>

Well, there is this thing were people like the idea of the guberment not knowing you have a gun via, not having to go through a nicks check.

The guberment knows I got a ****load of guns so when they come and get the ones they know about, I'll have to have a stash spot, a really good one so I can hide the guns they don't know about and hopefully, will not be able to find when they search my house and property, then make me swear an oath I have no more guns, hehe....

Concerning the AR type guns, I am planning on buying one or more of those 80% lower receivers so I can finish them myself and build an off the books weapon. I "just like the idea" of uncle obama not knowing I have something, for all the good it will do if the time comes.....

I am guessing in the end people may conjure up several reasons for buying such a thing, an unfinished gun frame.....:nuts: :rayof: :rolleyes: :D

Aren't you supposed to notify the government when you make a workable firearm? e.g., After you machine an 80% receiver into a 100% receiver? I'm not sure, but I think that's what you're supposed to do. It would be simple to ignore that step, even if required, but I don't think I'd want to. Like sawing off the barrel of your shotgun below minimum length. You probably wouldn't get caught, but if you did, bad things would happen to you.

If it is for your own personal usage perfectly legal to finish off an 80% lower or build something completely from scratch as long as it would qualify as a title 1 firearm. When you go to sell that to someone else................ that is when it gets dicy. Of course the burden of proof would be on the feds should they decided to go after you. Most likely if your on that radar they are already prepared for that. If you wish to build something and it falls within the parameters of the NFA then your required to fill out your application, pay for the tax stamp, wait for all that to come back and then "proceed" with your build. Most common example here is registering an AR lower as an SBR so you can throw a shorter barreled upper up on top. Or wishing to bust out the hacksaw and go to town on your shotgun etc.........

Not a lawyer, never claimed to be one so take the advice for what it is. With some of the new (illegal) executive orders that Lord O have brought upon us its possible this might not be the case anymore but that how it used to be. One would be wise to keep up on the subject if he/she intended to go down this route at some point in the near future.

It is legal to build your own firearm. thousands of people do it every year, that is why these 80% gun frames sell like hotcakes.

I have been interested in building an AR type gun from such an 80% receiver for a while now as I am a machinist. I did not want to do it before I had an actual working AR 15 first. Now I do so I am ready. I want to end up with at least 4 to 6 working AR15 rifles in the "arsenal" along with 3 to 5k rounds of ammo, or more.

Lot of trouble to go off the radar.
Go to a gun show. Buy something from some guy walking around. Walk out with a quality weapon that isn't known about by anyone.

There is a lot to be said for building something of your own. Fun, good feeling all around, whatever. But I personally don't want to rely on anything off a 3-d printer bolstered by an erector set to defend my life unless I have to.

A machinist isn't going to make a 3D printed lower. Probably turn up his nose at aluminum too.

Peace favor your sword,
