FYI, 80% are NO WAIT. They are not firearms.

So do not do it! Don't even think about doing it.
Completely and utterly incorrect. There is absolutely NO law in MD making it illegal to do so. There is, likewise, absolutely NO federal law that makes it illegal. Creating a lower via 3D printing is no different than milling a lower out of a block of aluminum. And by the way, it is NOT classified as manufacturing either by MSP or the ATF.

Keep in mind this lower should be for your personal use only (no intent for resale )


Have fun, stay safe, use the search function for the forum and search the MSP website for info https://mdsp.maryland.gov/Organizati...gDivision.aspx.
He was asking about purchasing an 80% lower, which is perfectly legal in MD.

You are wrong on both parts.

1. I am not aware of any MD law restricting 3d printing of firearms. Note there are some configurations of firearms that are banned and cannot be 3d printed, but those restrictions are based on the configuration and not the fact that they were 3d printed. The only federal restriction I am aware of is that there is a minimum metal content from the Undetectable Firearms Act https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Undetectable_Firearms_Act.

2. You cannot build an 80% AR lower into any configuration. The MD AWB restricts possession of certain configurations. You will need a HBAR barrel if you want to make a normal AR rifle.

So the OP asks a question in his first post. Another Yahoo responds with his third post misstaing MD and federal law.

Build what you want.
