Special Note: All shipping estimates below are superseded by the estimate with selected Product Options when present.
Orders are not shipped on Sundays or Holidays. All parts orders are shipped by USPS Priority Mail.
Orders for in stock items are typically shipped within 0-2 business days of order processing per the following details for specific products.
Raw 80% lower receivers are coming off of the CNC machines all day long and are typically on the shelf for immediate shipping in 0-5 business days. We indicate up to 5 days because as a small business other priorities spring up on a regular basis and may need to be dealt with before shipments are made. Most shipments for raw Lowers go out within 24 hours.
Anodized 80 percent lowers are normally in stock but due to unpredictable demand for specific Product Options such as Skeletonized versions may be backordered. For this reason those specific lowers are shown as Shipping in 1-3 weeks mostly due to sending out in-stock Raw versions that are to be anodized.
Cerakoted 80 lowers are rarely in stock and are shown as Shipping in 1-2 weeks because we send out in-stock Raw versions in small batches to be coated locally to fill those orders as they come in.
Disclaimer: While we are providing useful information below in regards to various state laws currently on the books, these laws are subject to change at any date. We are in no way providing legal advice or counsel, and you should perform your own due diligence regarding the specific laws regarding unfinished firearm frames or receivers in your state or locality.
We can ship to any mailing address in the United States except New Jersey and New York. We do not ship Internationally due to ITAR concerns. By ordering from us you are agreeing to fully comply with all state and local laws that may affect you. Below you can review the specific states that have potential legal ‘issues’ with 80% lowers.
CA – Of course their ‘assault weapons’ ban wrecked havoc with law abiding AR enthusiasts, and now everyone is required to get a SN before completing a lower receiver. And then they have to build the Rifle to CA standards which can be a major pain in the rear.
CT – HB 7219 “(a) No person shall complete the manufacture of a firearm without subsequently (1) obtaining a unique serial number or other mark of identification from the Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection pursuant to subsection (b) of this section, and (2) engraving upon or permanently affixing to the firearm such serial number or other mark in a manner that conforms with the requirements imposed on licensed importers and licensed manufacturers of firearms.”
DE – HB 125 Sec 1459A effectively bans “Possession of an unfinished firearm frame or receiver with no serial number.” unless it has “…the name of the manufacturer and individual serial number conspicuously placed on it…”
HI – HB 2744 amends Sec 134-1 “Prohibits the manufacture, purchase, or obtaining of firearm parts for the purpose of assembling a firearm having no serial number.” but Sec 134-2 allows you to register the completed lower.
NJ – State Atty General has threatened legal action if untraceable weapons are marketed or sold in NJ which has an ‘assault weapons’ ban in place but does not ban 80 percent lowers specifically, and has no means to be issued a SN for a completed lower. A completed AR lower would constitute possession of an ‘illegal’ firearm by state law but oddly enough, a completed 308 lower would not.
NV – AB286 Sec 3 “Prohibits a person from possessing, purchasing, transporting or receiving an unfinished frame or receiver unless: (1) the person is a firearms importer or manufacturer; or (2) the unfinished frame or receiver is required to be, and has been, imprinted with a serial number.” but this was struck down by the courts in Dec 2021.
NY – Yes, unfinished receivers are legal in NY as long as they are not used to manufacture a Rifle that violates the Safe Act, and as long as they are not used to make a pistol for a person that does not hold a pistol license. But the State Atty General has threatened legal action if 80% lower receivers are marketed or sold in NY.
RI – HB 7102 “Prohibits the manufacturing, importation, sale, shipment, delivery, possession, or transfer of any firearm that is ‘undetectable’ by metal detectors commonly used at airports and public buildings including 3D printed firearms as defined herein.”
PA – Does not have a specific law in place, but State Atty General wants to do background checks thru their state system for anyone who is buying, selling or transferring an 80 percent lower. We believe that they are requesting the owner create a SN, and then its added to the system when a BGC is completed.
WA – HB 1739 Sec 3 “…it is unlawful for any person to: (a) Manufacture, own, buy, sell, loan, furnish, transport, or have in possession or under control, any machine gun, bump-fire stock, undetectable firearm, short-barreled shotgun, or short-barreled rifle; … (d) Manufacture an untraceable firearm with the intent to sell the untraceable firearm.”
A polymer 80% lower or frame is subject to the ‘undetectable’ criteria and is therefore ‘illegal’, however this wouldn’t apply to aluminum lowers. We’re not sure how WA state gun enthusiasts handle this because while possessing an aluminum 80 lower is not illegal, getting a SN for it when complete is not possible.
Localities – There are several cities and counties that “Prohibit the possession, purchase, sale, receipt or transport of a non-serialized unfinished firearm frame or receiver or non-serialized firearm”. And as everyone knows, banning these specific parts from law abiding citizens will stop all firearms related crime. It must be nice to live in those cities with millions of people and a zero murder rate.
Localities Currently include: DC, City of Los Angeles, City of Oakland and San Fran, and San Diego County
Multiple Product Orders
For a multiple product order, we will ship all products contained in the order at the same time, unless we ask and you inform us otherwise. You will only be charged for shipping at the rate quoted to you on your purchase receipt. The entirety of the shipping cost will be applied to the first product(s) shipped on a multiple shipment order.
All products that are out of stock will be shown as “Out-of-Stock” on their respective product webpage, and therefore cannot be ordered until such time as additional stock has been added. Any products shown as back ordered and taking additional time to ship have an explanation as to why per above.
You may cancel your order at any time prior to shipping by contacting us by email.
Please contact us for an RMA (Return Merch Auth) number to be placed on the outside of the package being returned.
Parts may be returned for a refund less actual shipping costs and a 10% restocking fee for up to 10-days after receipt provided parts are unused and in original condition as shipped from us.
80% Lower Receivers (considered Parts) can be returned for a refund less actual shipping costs plus 10% restocking fee provided the products are unused nor modified. If an 80% Lower Receiver has been drilled or milled, it cannot be returned as it is now legally defined as a firearm.
We do not accept returns on Jigs under any circumstances other than parts with manufacturing defects or incorrect shipments.
Exchanges and Refunds
We will replace the product or provide full refund, plus pay for the return shipping costs, if the return is a result of our error such as you received an incorrect or incomplete order, or the product manufactured by 80Lowers contained defects.
If electing a refund, you should expect to receive the refund within one week of return receipt. However, in many cases you will receive a refund more quickly.
Limited Lifetime Warranty
If the product should fail to perform for the design function in any way for the life of the product, then we will replace the product with a superior version at no cost, or provide a full refund at the customers request. This warranty is null and void if the lower is not completed to mil-spec specifications. It is understood that customers can and will use Jigs from other sources, and we will not hold the use of competitor fixtures against the warranty.
