 Legality of pistols built from 80% lowers used for ccw

So I'm new to this site, forgive me if I don't follow protocols. My question is in relation to the WA state laws on use of an AR pistol built from an 80% lower. (If there are applicable federal statutes, I'm interested) after reviewing WA RCW 91 in its entirety I did not see any prohibitions against the use of these. I know it's a lot of gun, and I don't carry one as such. But having a loaded one in my personal vehicle subjects me to have in my possession a valid CCW permit, otherwise I'd get new bracelets. So does WA have any specific statutes that address 80% lowers, which would require them to have identifiable markings, when used as a CCW? I'd also mention that there are dedicated 80% pistol lowers for the more traditional pistols, Glock etc. which would also be addressed by any supposed statutes, as I'm sure most of you know.

To sum it up.

No.

Welcome to WaGuns! :wavey:

Start with an 80% lower. Turn it into a 100% lower. Mark it if you want, don't if you don't. Carry and conceal just like you would any other pistol.

Does anybody actually conceal carry an AR pistol? I mean besides that you can carry it loaded in the car?

I do, if I'm wearing summer clothing and can't conceal my Draco.

I've been accused (wrongly) of having a full sized AR in my pants. She was pleasantly surprised when she was wrong... :thumbsup2:

As to the OP, I'm 3 drinks in. I don't have a clue. But a lower is what, $60... just get a pistol lower, and be done with it. Why spend the time and energy and risk and never know for sure when you can solve the problem with a pistol lower for $60...? Why spin your wheels? Spent the money, and then you have your safe answer and have 2 lowers. Win-win.

Agreed, x39 is just too heavy for summer heat

The hair would cover anything next to your body.

Except on your head, of course. :bigsmile:

This. LE might look a bit surprised if there aren't markings, but nothing illegal about it.
As for actual CC, just make sure you have a loose jacket and you are good. Might consider 10 or 20rnd mags, and a good modular or single point sling is a must. I've never tried it, but I might have to now for shits and grins.

Yeah, if I had too, I'd single point sling it around my neck. I might get it marked, fire control -boring & loads of fun!
