    Eighty percent lowers, they're the talk of the gun industry right now. The concept is simple enough - an AR-15 receiver that is only 80% finished is not legally considered a firearm. That means (in most states) that anyone can purchase one just as easily as you can purchase any other chunk of metal and finalize the machining to turn it into a functioning firearm for personal use only. However, as we've seen in the... Read More »
