    FACT. If you are legally able to own a firearm of the type you want to build in your State, County, City. You are legally able to build one. No serial number. No manufacturers name. It can not be built "For Sale". https://www.atf.gov/firearms/qa/does...m-personal-use
    Not quite. You cant make most NFA items, for example, without having a bunch of extra paperwork, and you cant make automatic weapons at all. You also have to be careful of the base materials you start with. As an example if you wanted to make a bolt-action pistol, you have to start with a new receiver, one thats never been used to make a rifle. If you take a receiver that started life as a rifle and slap an 8 inch barrel on it, legally youve made a short-barreled rifle, not a pistol

    Most (but not all) places also require that you serialize any weapons you make, and even if its not required youll be answering some awkward questions about why you have an unserialized firearm

      Don't spread FUD. Read the ATF link and my original post again. NOT COUNTING STATE AND LOCAL LAWS. The Feds DO NOT REQUIRE serial numbers on a RECEIVER that YOU make. The RECEIVER is the FIREARM. You can take your home made receiver and build it into a any LEGAL pistol, rifle or other configuration. It is on you to know the laws.

      The first configuration "Sticks". Per the ATF. So a rifle could never be a pistol without SBR papers. But the ATF would need to prove that swap happened in court. Like all the clowns buying AR15 rifles and putting on arm braces and 10" uppers. Just because a receiver is modular does not make it able to be a pistol and rifle at the same time.
