    And check out Ares Armor and Brownell's. I don't see why you can't buy a lower even if you're under 21, +18 y.o. is the requirement for a rifle/shotgun and +21y.o. for pistol. Maybe where you were looking the lowers were already registered as pistol:notsure:

    I'd recommend piecing together a rifle YOU ACTUALLY WANT!!! Don't settle for something that "does the job"... entry level AR15's can be "affordable", but why spend $600-$800 on the gun then immediately want a new foregrip with rails the next month(+$100 min.) then a new stock the next month (+$80) sometime new muzzle attachment (+$60) trigger (+$120) grip (+$20) . Sh*t adds up quick:bananadead:, so might as well buy the stuff originally instead of down the road.

    A stripped lower is neither a rifle or pistol, it's listed as "other" on the 4473, which means he has to be 21 to purchase (because it has the potential of being a legal "pistol").
    At 18 he can buy a rifle lower (complete lower with stock).

    Yeah I live in California so every year they do small meaningless changes similar to that. Like this year there trying to outlaw the bullet button. And also trying to add the mini 14 type rifles to the assault weapons list.

    S&W make some great guns, this is the basic AR-15, at the low end of your budget so you can buy magazines and ammo, and after you get used to iron sights you could upgrade to an optic.

    I would go with the Smith and Wesson Mp15 sport or the Ruger Ar556. Both are entry level ar15 and cost around $600.
