LWR = Legal Without Registration.

It's an American thing, basically in the US people can buy lower receivers that are only 80% finished. Buying such a receiver does not require it to be shipped to an FFL holder and because they are only 80% finished it has no serial number. To finish the receiver all it takes is a receiver jig and drilling a couple of holes to make it 100% finished.
