Re: You an't seen nothing yet.

Don’t need a computer to make a bullet. I cast lead bullets with and without a gas check base and Swag bullets with a brass jacket. Real old tech.

BTAF regs

Under U.S. Federal law a firearm constructed at home with 80% of the work being done by the individual does not have to be registered with the BATF. In the case of the AR-15 series of rifles the lower receiver (the part with the serial number on it) is classified as the Firearm. Neither the Bolt nor the Bolt Carrier have a serial number. So yes this is a legal firearm. Also the reason the lower can be made of Aluminum or Plastic is that there is no stress on the lower. I own a plastic lower and like it very much.

Only 17 hrs.

As an Alaskan we don't have many Point to Point flights to America. My last flight was 20 hours and changing planes 3 time going down. Going back up I only had to change a plane one and the trip still took 12 hours.

I feel your pain. In Alaska we call it the AGF (Alaskan Gouge Factor). 15-45% over MSR. The problem is that some Internet retailers don’t consider Alaska and Hawaii as part of America. So they won’t ship to us.
