Default Kit-build legal help

Greetings, all. It's been a while since my last visit, but I still have my T-shirt.

I have a buddy who has a kit-build AMD-65 (of which he is the original owner), and he would like to sell it. It's built on an unmarked receiver. I tried to get some answers from the BATF's website, but this seems like a real gray area. He's not a licensed manufacturer, and he's not selling for profit in the way a business does. He just has the one rifle that he would like to part with.

1. Is it legal for him to sell it?
2. If so, does he need to etch something on the receiver and make the BATF aware?

Thanks for the help.
