Laws and Regulations
Please be sure to understand the laws and regulations in the location that you live, as I will not ship a rifle to a place that it is illegal to own one in. As part of the process you will be required to fill out an ATF Form 4473, provide a current driver’s license and a current address, along with a current phone number where you can be reached.
The instant FBI NICS background check will be performed by the FFL holder that the rifle is shipped to upon completion, or by us if the rifle is delivered in person. Parts are just that. They do not become a rifle until they have a receiver. It is then subject to all federal and local laws. I will build the rifle to 922R compliance. Please be sure to provide a copy of the Federal Firearms License of the business that you would like me to ship the rifle to once it is completed. This service is being provided only for legal and legitimate purposes. Please understand the laws and regulations in the area that you will be using the rifle. Do not request the service if it is illegal for you to use or possess the rifle when it is complete. Fowler Precision Arms, it's owner, employees and associates accept no responsibility for improper, illegal or illegitimate use of it's products.
Fowler Precision Arms is a law abiding business that manufactures firearms as a tool to be responsibly used by law abiding citizens of the United States, for all lawful and legitimate sporting, educational, self protection and professional purposes. Our firearms are only to be used by persons who may lawfully possess them and where they may lawfully be possessed. Like many tools, firearms are an inanimate object that when used properly by a trained individual are safe and efficient to use. When used improperly they can become dangerous and can cause serious bodily injury and even death. Always use great care when using a firearm. Always assume that it is loaded and never point it at something that you do not want to destroy or kill in a lawful manner. Store firearms in a safe manner and never allow a minor or someone who is untrained in the proper and safe use of firearms to possess them while unattended by a trained and responsible adult. Fowler Precision Arms does not endorse and accepts no responsibility for any illegitimate, unlawful or negligent use of it's firearms, or for the results of that use.
