Building an AR, whether 16" or SBR, is touchy.
The 4473 on a stripped lower is designated "Other", and you have to be 21 to buy anything other than a "rifle".
The rifle designation includes shotguns with shoulder stocks, but not cruisers.
Even in a free state, you can't legally purchase a stripped lower, though your dad or grandfather can give you one.
You CAN purchase a completed AR, then replace the upper with a shorty.
