They will only ship to an FFL? Isnt one of the perks to not go through a FFL?

Only the 80% lowers are shipped to your door without an FFL. The complete stripped lower has a serial number on it and has to go to the FFL dealer.

Ahhh, I missed that piece. Is there an advantage to one over the other minus the serial number?

This is my first dive into building my own and I am still studying it.

If it was my first build, Id go with a registered lower. Everything should be cut accurately, making your first time a little smoother. Once you get the hang of it, Id try the 80%.

I agree. A lot easier to learn the basic build with a federalized stripped receiver before moving on to milling out an 80%.

A strong conviction that something must be done is the parent of many bad measures.

There is also some restrictions with what you can do with the 80% lower after you buy it. You are kind of stuck with the lower as you cannot sell it without going through an FFL to assign a serial number to it and register it. Kind of a complicated process and some other restrictions that I don't care for.

There is a lot of confusion on the 80% lowers, maybe this will help.   https://www.ammoland.com/2014/11/atf-answers-questions-on-80-receiver-blanks/#axzz5EwKN4smf
Read it all the way thru it is kind of confusing in that the answers to different questions seem to contradict each other.
