If you’re new to the scene of DIY AR-15 building, you might be asking how it can be legal to build your own AR-15? The answer is relatively simple, so we’ll do our best to explain.

All questions revolving around the legality of building an AR-15 begin at a federal law enforcement level. It is the federal government who defines and interprets what firearms are and are not legal to manufacture or possess within the United States. While states do have the right to pass additional legislation, the federal government is generally the deciding factor for most gun related laws.
