RESTRICTED ORDERS

New gun laws are always being passed. While we make every effort to update our terms and conditions to reflect state and federal laws, the information contained in this page may not always be current or all-inclusive.  It is your responsibility to know and understand all current laws governing the sale, transport, making of, and ownership of a firearm in your state. Any orders placed that cannot be fulfilled because of certain state or federal laws may be subject to an automatic cancellation and refund, and such orders will be subject to a 10% restocking fee.

Find everything you need to know about shipping and costs, canceling an order, returning an item, and processing a refund below. Have other questions? Just contact us!

Customer Loyalty Program

Seasoned shooters listen up! We’re thankful for you choosing us for all your AR-15 parts and 80% lowers. So, we’re supporting you in return! Any customer who has spent $1,000 or more with us over their lifetime qualifies for free returns at any time (even past 90 days) on new, unopened, unused items! Qualifying customers will not be charged any restocking fee or return shipping cost.

Shipping Costs

Shipping costs and delivery dates are estimated at checkout. Our track record and goal is to ship every order the same day the order is placed, the next day at the latest (for in-stock items). All shipping costs are determined by the shipping options you select for your order during checkout. We ship via UPS for your convenience. All orders are shipped in non-descriptive boxes and sealed at every edge to ensure safe and anonymous delivery. As a courtesy, many of our items can qualify for free shipping, which is also determined when you place your order. Currently, orders over $325 qualify for free standard shipping (UPS Ground)! We do NOT currently ship to any PO Box addresses. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Shipping Restrictions

80-Lower.com only ships within the United States. Shipping is prohibited to states and locales with restrictions against certain parts and/or accessories (i.e. states with high-capacity magazine restrictions). Federal legislation dictates we cannot ship our products internationally. PLease review state-specific restrictions below before to ensure you can purchase and receive our products before placing an order:

New Jersey

New Jersey’s Attorney General has demanded that companies stop marketing and selling untraceable weapons or “ghost guns”. Unfortunately, we cannot allow sales or shipping of any of our items to the state of New Jersey. See N.J.S.A. 2C:39-9g.

New York

New York's Attorney General has also demanded that companies stop marketing and selling 80% lowers and firearm receiver blanks to residents in New York. Unfortunately, we cannot allow sales or shipping of our products to New York. 

New York law criminalizes the possession, manufacture, sale, and transportation of assault weapons, which are defined as any semiautomatic rifle that can accept a detachable magazine and has at least one of several enumerated secondary characteristics, including a pistol grip or a stock that folds, telescopes, or bears a thumbhole.

Connecticut

Connecticut recently enacted Substitute House Bill No. 7219 Public Act No. 19-6. This Bill prohibits the sale, shipment, and ownership of un-serialized 80% lower receivers and all other firearm receiver and frame blanks in the state of Connecticut. Since receiver and frame blanks are not regulated by the ATF and are not engraved with unique serial numbers at the time of manufacture, we cannot sell 80% lowers to Connecticut residents.

Washington

(HB 1739 effective July 1, 2019)
Unfortunately, we can’t allow sales or shipping of undetectable and/or untraceable unfinished lower receivers to the state of Washington.


Please be aware of your local firearms laws. Such laws are updated frequently and restrictions described here may not be complete.

RETURNS

Returning New, Unopened, & Unused Items

We gladly accept returns on any new, unopened, and unused items for any reason within 90 days of shipping for a full refund. We strive to keep our prices as low as possible for all our builders. Because of this, returns of new, non-defective items are subject to a 10% re-stocking fee and return shipping costs.

Returning Defective Items

We want your experience with us to be the best. You deserve quality lowers and gun parts! If you ever receive an item from us that is defective, broken, or otherwise deficient, we want you to return it. We’ll work to make it right for you. Get in touch with us to start the return process as soon as possible. For returns of lower receivers, please read below.

Returning an 80% Lower Receiver

Very rarely, some 80% lower receivers may be manufactured out-of-spec or with incorrect tolerances. In very rare circumstances will we replace these. If you notice a defect with the lower you purchased, do not attempt to machine it. If you started the machining process, please stop immediately. Please contact us first. Once a lower is partially machined, it may be classified as a firearm under the Gun Control Act of 1968. We cannot accept any returns on any items that may be considered a firearm. But that does not necessarily mean we can’t accept your return. Keep reading:

Partial or Completed 80% Lower Returns

If your lower is completed or partially completed and is found to be defective by no fault of your own, we’ll work with you to replace it. Do not do anything further to the lower. First, give us a call or send us an email. We will attempt to diagnose the issue with you. We may ask that you submit some photos of the defect and the current state of the lower receiver to confirm the defect. If we can determine your partial or completed lower is defective, we’ll discuss with you how to legally and safely return it. Remember, we cannot accept returns on any items that may be considered a firearm. We cannot accept a return on any lower receiver with any other parts installed on it. Returning a partially-machined or completed lower may require destruction to make it inoperable, such as cutting the lower in half. This is the only way to guarantee your safety and ours.

CANCELLATIONS & REFUNDS

Canceling an Order

You may place an order and decide you no longer need that item. It happens! If you place an order and wish to cancel, please contact us as soon as possible. We work quickly to process, box, and ship orders the same or next day. Canceled orders may be subject to the 10% re-stocking fee once placed. We cannot guarantee canceled orders will not be subject to a re-stocking fee. The sooner you contact us, the better!

Refunds

Refunds are processed within 2 business days of receiving your item back into our inventory. We will process your refund with your original payment method. We’ll also email you a copy of your refund receipt for your records. Upon initiation of a refund, it may take up to 3 to 5 business days for the funds to appear in your account.
