If you were to buy a part from someone, lets say a complete lower. do you need a FFL to have this shipped to? or is an FFL only required for a complete firearm?

something i was wondering about

lower=firearm. If you neeed an ffl to send you a firearm you need an ffl to send you a lower. Complete or not. A stripped lower is the same thing. Everything else would be unregulated. Partskit,upper, trigger, bolt, etc all good to buy.

The part of the firearm that has the serial number is the actual firearm. That is the part that must be transferred to an FFL.

On a Ranch Rifle or Mini-14, that is the receiver. It doesn't really have a lower.

On a MKIII .22 pistol it's the barrel/receiver assembly, so buying a lower would not involve an FFL. But if you want to buy a new barrel for it, it must be done through an FFL.

I thought pistols were usually the frame. Why is the mkiii different?
