Oceanside California: Gun store owner halts ATF Raid This one is starting to make the news. I spotted this today on the GOA Facebook alerts. The ATF wanted names of 5,000 customers who bought an 80% lower for building an AR-15. The gun owner filed for a restraining order "in anticipation of the raid". The store owner refused to hand over the information. The restraining order is temporary, this could go to court March 20 2014 if an agreement is not reached. http://fox5sandiego.com/2014/03/12/gun-store-owner-halts-federal-raid/#axzz2vrYVWzYv “They were going to search all of our facilities and confiscate our computer and pretty much shut our business down,” said Karras. “The government invades our privacy on a daily basis and everyone thinks its ok. This is one of those situations where hopefully the governmental institutions will come in say this is protected and no you’re not taking it from them.” The ATF threatened to shut their business down if the Ares Armor did not cooperate with the demands of the ATF. "Karras said the ATF threatened to shutter their business if they didn’t hand over the names of 5,000 customers who have purchased an 80 percent lower receiver (the base) for building an AR-15." More Information at http://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/2014/03/daniel-zimmerman/ares-armor-holds-atf-raid-now/ "At no point during the manufacturing process by EP Armory is a weapon made and then reverted. The solid fire-control cavity is built first and the rest of the 80% casting is made around this “core” specifically so that their product at no time could be considered to be a firearm."

I cannot in good moral conscience turn over a list of names to the BATFE just because they unduly threaten us with an unjust raid based on information they KNOW TO BE FALSE!" I think we need to watch this situation closely.
So I got a New Frontier Armory lower a couple weeks ago. For the most part, I'm happy with it. What I am unhappy about are the seam lines, and what looks like chatter marks on the sides of the receiver. Is it fine to use sand paper to clean up these marks and seams, or is it not suggested?
