I found some online deal to sell a striped AR-15 lower receiver new with free shipping for $59. But seller only willing to ship it to FFL dealer. Is it a law ? Paying 25$ for the transfer of every part of AR-15 really increases the cost. Is it strictly necessary or seller is just acting on "better be safe than sorry" basis ?

To the best of my knowledge, he is just playing it safe. I believe that the Lower has no serial # on it, and therefore is not considered a firearm. The upper, has the reciever, and has the serial #. That would require the FFL Transfer.

The lower receiver is the weapon. A lower receiver contains the weapon's serial number. Everything else is a 'part'. A stripped receiver, since it can be made into a 'pistol', may only be sold to someone 21 or older.
