    What's wrong with my forged Oly lower that's SBR'd? It's given me years of faithful service without a hitch. Please explain why my Oly lower doesn't pack the gear to serve as a SBR so others aren't swayed.

And even then you'll have your name and location from the engraving out there floating around for whoever winds up with the lower.

    I'd guesstimate $450 invested in the lower and $75 resale value.
    Buy a factory SBR and solve the problem. For example, and LE6921 runs around the same price as a LE6920.

    Where? I'd like to get an LE6921, but they're $1695 at SAW.

    I bought a Noveske and luckily was able to skip most.

    Unfortunately I did have Orion Arms do the engraving and I'm not too happy. He slopped black paint in the engraved area and smeared it around with a paper towel of some sort. There was a little dried lint I had to remove.



    Your post seems to have a lot of sass to it. Same thing I'd expect to see when 20 people complain about their Aimpoint clones breaking. I like it. Pretty funny.

    That's much better. If they have them, it would save me more than the cost of the NFA stamp.

    Thanks for the clarification.

That's a felony. Your dealer cannot release a suppressor to you before your Form 4 comes back, right? It's the same concept with a short upper. So, no, you cannot legally obtain one before your stamp is returned approved. Do what you want & folks will tell you to have it shipped to or stored with someone else who doesn't own any AR's if you want to order one before your stamp comes back. Negatron. You're still in constructive possession.

    Will your hatch be forced by the feds looking for SBR's with you not already having a stamp? Prolly not, but you've asked the question on a public board that's monitored by feds. I wouldn't risk it since now you know. Complete the proper procedure first without breaking the law so you don't have that on your conscience. Don't fall into the instant gratification syndrome of wanting a SBR upper before hand, like so many do on these boards & then try to justify the felony by having it stored at another location.

    And I look at that this way- I can prove to them the constructive intent to build one legally when they're in possession of my forms and check and I'm just waiting patiently.
