• Q - May I lawfully make a firearm for my own personal use, provided it is not being made for resale?

A -YES, This quote is taken from the ATF Website http://www.atf.gov/files/firearms/industry/0501-firearms-top-10-qas.pdf: "Firearms may be lawfully made by persons who do not hold a manufacturer's license under the GCA provided they are not for sale or distribution and the maker is not prohibited from receiving or possessing firearms." 

  • Q - Does the Freedom15 Mold Kit require transfer or registration through an FFL? 

A - No. This is a do-it-yourself product. You start with a 0% product and end up with a 100% complete product in about 2 hours. There are videos on our YouTube site that detail the casting procedures.   AR15Mold YouTube Channel 

  • Q - Are you a Firearms Manufacture 

A - No, we design and produce high quality molds and polymer resin. Our products ship to the customer and the customer performs the work to turn a 0% mold into a 100% lower receiver 

  • Q - Do you have an ATF "Determination Letter" for the Freedom-15 Mold?  

A - No, we are not a Firearms Manufacture, we design and produce high quality molds and polymer resin.  

Our products ship to the customer and the customer performs the work to turn a 0% mold into a 100% lower receiver.  

We have sent a Freedom15 mold and a request for a "Determination letter" to the ATF.  We will make their letter public after they respond to our request.

  • Q - What about the "Undetectable Firearms Act of 1988"?  Isn't this product Illegal?

A - If you read Section 2 of the "Undetectable Firearms Act of 1988" in the picture below, it clearly states two items: 

1) Section 2.1.A - Paraphrased "That an assembled firearm with removed buttstock, pistol grip, and magazine must still set off a metal detector". If you remove these parts from a Freedom15 lower, the lower parts kit installed in the receiver will still trigger any metal detector. 

This concept is no different than building a polymer 80% lower, except that in the case of a Freedom15 you are starting with a 0% lower. 

2) Section 2.2.A - "The term 'firearm' does not include the frame or receiver of any such weapon. 

It is very clear from this wording that the receiver "by itself" is not included in the law.  The receiver must have a lower parts kit installed to be considered a 'firearm' by this particular law.

  • Q - Can I build and then transfer a finished firearm to another individual? 

A - Yes it is possible, however you must mark the firearm in accordance with 27 CFR 472.92 (formally 178.92).  You must follow all laws that are in place today. Do yourself a favor an protect yourself, don't put a completed firearm in anyone's hands unless you have gone through proper channels and background checks. Following the proper channels will protect us, our family, and our friends.  For any firearm transfer it is your responsibility to understand the federal and local laws and how they apply. 

  • Q - Is it legal to assemble a firearm from commercially available parts kits that can be purchased via the internet or via Firearms News?

A - Yes, This quote is taken directly from the ATF Web Site: "Firearms may be lawfully made by persons who do not hold a manufacturer’s license under the GCA provided they are not for sale or distribution and the maker is not prohibited from receiving or possessing firearms. However, a person is prohibited from assembling a non-sporting semiautomatic rifle or shotgun from 10 or more imported parts, as set forth in regulations in 27 C.F.R. 478.39" http://www.atf.gov/files/firearms/industry/0501-firearms-top-10-qas.pdf

  • Our Story

We designed and built our first version of the Freedom-15 mold product in early 2007.

By late 2012 we finally had what we considered was a great mold product and we moved into product field testing and validation.  Our primary problem is that we are "perfectionist gun guys" and we tested, re-tested and continued to improve the product design.

In early 2013, we decided that we should mass-produce the mold product "in-house".  Mass-production presented a host of challenges that took us time to solve.

Our final internal product torture test for one of our "home cast" Freedom-15 units consisted of:

• Heating the entire assembled AR15 weapon up to 165F and letting it sit at 165F for 8 hours.

• Removing the weapon (with gloves, installed loaded mag) and start firing the weapon for 480 rounds (16 mags, semi auto).

• As soon as the 480 rounds were fired....the weapon was put back into the 165F heat and we repeated the test for a second time (heat and firing).
