    Thanks
    Only the stripped Lower count as a firearm. So this is it

    I believe you are supposed to reregister the completed rifle [barrel length, caliber, etc.] however given the current legislative uncertainties, you might prefer to wait on that.

    The lower is marked as a "frame" in your registration.
    As soon as you make it able to shoot, you have to update your registration and it will convert from a frame to a rifle.
    If for some reason a LEO is inspecting your firearm and your registration doesn't match your firearm, that's when you can get in trouble.

    I called yesterday to verify this, what the rep told me was call in with 30 days to register the complete rifle with a measuring tape handy(they will ask you to do some measurements to categorize your new registration). Then they will issue a new registration to you once that is done. Apologize for the previous reply.

    Ya and whats silly is they mark it as a "frame" on the registration but if you transport it you need an ATT.

    Yep, but silver lining if you know they are coming,, and we will, then re register as a stripped lower, so, they can only take the lower and you have the rest of your rifle to put back together when this foolishness is over! Also, before they take your stripped lower, beat the hell out of it with a hammer, just leave the serial number legible, smile when you hand it to them!
