I was looking at aimsurplus and saw this receiver.

Low Shelf for use with RDIAS.
I don't what low shelf means so I thought would ask some of the more enlightened people here on THR.
Just what does "Low Shelf for use with RDIAS" mean?

It means that the receiver has been machined with the possibility of installing a NFA-registered drop-in auto-sear. There are two methods of legally getting full-auto safely. There's buying a M-16/ect or buying a registered, pre-86 auto-sear that is designed to install in an AR-15 without having to drill a pin hole for it. (please correct me if I'm wrong). Add a safe/semi/auto trigger and a M-16 BCG, and you have a full-auto gun.

In simple terms, the Spike's Tactical lowers have the option to add a $16,000 fun-switch without additional machining. Doesn't inherently impact operation or ownability, but just an open option.

Thanks for your reply SV51macross. I googled Registered Drop in Auto sears after you told me what RDIAS stands for and found this.
