    No, that's what you tell your lawyer.

    Your lawyer will figure out what to tell the judge.

    So, receivers for ARs

    It’s like this . If you have a stripped lower, registered ( say you imported one for example) . It’s registration as a “ lower” stays that way until, you build it into a complete firearm, you then have to call the CFP and “ update “ the registration to a full firearm , with the usual particulars, such as barrel length etc. If it’s something “new” you may be asked to send pictures to the CFP for verification to the Colt SP-1 profile of the trigger pocket , or, if its not looking right, or you intend to import more, it may have to go for a hands on inspection

    This is the important part .

    Once you have registered your receiver as a complete firearm, you cannot reverse it to “ just a lower” as the serial number is attached to a firearm ( caliber, barrel length etc)

    You sure? Where does it say that in the regs? The regs require letting them know within 30 days of change where does it say the change can only go in one direction?
    Even some prohibited firearms have had their status changed to restricted and same with restricted to non restricted status

    Ever bought/sold a used stripped lower that's still registered as a complete rifle with caliber and barrel length?

    B A L O N E Y !

    You absolutely can alter the registration of a rifle back to "receiver only." All that indicates is the receiver is in a condition that does not immediately allow the discharge of ammunition.

    There is also nothing stopping you stripping a receiver back to bare and then not changing the registration. A receiver is either registered or not. The parts attached to it are basically irrelevant.

    Do you have to have it proven or show proof that it is now a stripped lower? Or is it just a call to re-register as a stripped lower?

    Registering as a stripped lower is fairly pointless. It doesn't change the classification of the thing or how it is handled under the law. Everything else still applies.

    Surely you have documented proof to back all of this up. Right?

    Give it time. They'll make uppers and all other components prohibited, just like standard capacity magazines.

    There's a very convenient legislated window of time to report changes to a firearm. And if you change something, then change it back a week later, do you still need to report it? Just saying...
