AR-10 Stripped Lower and Upper waiting period in MD?

Recently I was in a gun shop browsing around and came across a AR-10 Stripped Upper and Lower that I liked and since I was looking to build a .308 I thought it was perfect. So I got some help and the person helping me told me that I would have to fill out a 77R and wait the 7 days. I questioned this stating that AR-10s, AR-10 lowers that are complete or stripped are not regulated in Maryland and therefor forgo the 77R and waiting period. The person claimed that any AR lower; stripped, complete, 10, 15, 9 or full AR guns are all regulated in the state of Maryland. I then stated that a stripped AR-10 lower is listed nowhere as regulated and is cash and carry provided I pass the 4473. The person continued to claim that I am wrong and that a stripped AR-10 lower is regulated. Does anyone have any information on this. Everything I can seem to find states that stripped AR-10 lowers are non regulated but canít find anything on MSP website stating that, or any penal codes. Thank you.

As far as i know all AR type stripped lowers are regulated because its registered as an "other". Not a handgun or a rifle and since it could theoretically be assembled into a pistol its treated as a pistol minus a hql requirement.

AR10 stripped lowers are cash and carry, NICS check only
AR15 stripped lowers require the 77R and 7 day wait, no HQL

This. AR-10 anything (this side of a completed pistol) should be cash-and-carry at any LGS with half a clue.

Good to know. As with most md gun laws, logic goes right out the window.

I will after this. Was going away for a week the day after so I decided **** it and put a deposit on it and went away. Forgot about it and got the call today that my 77R has expired. Donít wanna lose the restocking fee but not going to wait 7 days again for a cash and carry item. Honestly just might say **** it and return it

Exactly what I said. Person said well because you could make it into a piston itís regulated like one. And I just looked at them and asked then why donít I need to show you my HQL they just looked at me blankly.

Everything I have found online states the opposite. MSP FAQ sheet even stated you can take a stripped lower and build a pistol without a HQL. If you could point me to a MSP page or Penal code that states what you say that would be really helpful.

sales of stripped lowers of banned long guns are regulated (77r), see here: https://mdsp.maryland.gov/Document%2...ong%20Guns.pdf

AR15 lower is regulated because the lower is that of a regulated long gun (post 2013, "regulated" long guns were banned).

AR10s never were regulated, they were (and still are) cash and carry. Ergo, the lower of the AR10 is also cash and carry.
