To build a custom AR-15, you need a lot of patience, and in fact, perseverance is the key. Please start with the receiver as it is the home to all the gun components. Always remember that you have to register the element with the federal department before you use it. If you don't have the proper paperwork, then it will be considered as an eighty percent or unfinished receiver. Civilians refer to them as ghost guns because it is difficult to identify them accurately.

There is not registry in red states. ONly the receiver is the controlled item. You can buy one from the store w/ serial numbers..or build one from scratch 80% lowers. Some states regulate the 'manufacture' of such lowers. So check your ordinances where you live. You may or may not be able to 'finish' machine an 80% lower for someone -again check your local laws.
The AR15 is simple to assemble - only one nut in the rifle for crying out loud. There are many barrel options - so build according to your intended purpose. Hope this helps.

I have one build in process and another in the wings. Not that difficult (only finding the time).

"Perseverance" to assemble an AR? Really?

I have had Lego© models give me more trouble than an AR.

And, what is this "registration" you speak of?

Lastly, this is completely untrue:

"If you don't have the proper paperwork, then it will be considered as an eighty percent or unfinished receiver."

A receiver is a firearm, period. The only people that need to worry about keeping paperwork on firearms are manufacturers and people in the business of selling or trading firearms (or those stuck in states and municipalities that don't believe in the 2nd Amendment and act accordingly.

There is nothing that is "considered as an eighty percent or unfinished receiver", the ATF sees things as "a firearm" or "not a firearm", to them there is no difference between an "80% receiver" and a bicycle.
