    You had me at "die-hard" . Do you fellas see any other necessary components disappearing after the frames? I'm expecting decking and rail cutting jigs to be fast followers. My take on this is it's important to learn hands-on how these components work before the means to learn dries up, and I don't see it in my budget to buy even the cheap milling machines. The frame is here at a surprisingly affordable price, the decking jig is in the mail, and I'm going old school with a set of hand files because I may as well pick up some metalworking skills while I'm exploring the deep end of the pool on a budget.

    Update from the NSSF: The new rules were published in the Federal Register on April 26. They will become effective 120 days from that date.

Many comments submitted by NSSF to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) were incorporated, resulting in changes from the proposed rule. “We look forward to engaging with ATF to obtain more concrete guidance and elaboration on issues that remain,” NSSF’s Mark Oliva told Guns.com “For example, there are unanswered questions of when something constitutes a ‘new design’ or ‘new configuration’ and when is an object ‘clearly identifiable’ as an unfinished frame or receiver such that the requirements of the Final Rule apply.” NSSF remains concerned of the obligations of retailers and gunsmiths to serialize firearms and the requirement for retailers to permanently maintain firearm transfer records.
