Do You Have to Have a Serial Number on a 80% Build?
« on: September 10, 2016, 04:19:06 PM »

Perhaps this letter from the BATF itself will explain the question.  Answered in paragraph (2) of page (2).

That letter specifically refers to the firearm "transfer" which means you give, sell or otherwise dispose of the firearm to become someone else's property. Then you have to mark it. As long as it remains the firearm of the manufacturer (you) then it does not need to be marked. Some people do as a way of identifying the firearm if it should be lost, stolen or even taken by an ill-informed LEO.
