Can a non-licensee acquire an unfinished firearm frame or receiver (i.e. does not meet the definition of a firearm frame or receiver under the final rule), components, tools, jigs, etc. from an unrelated company, and legally make a PMF?

Under federal law, it’s not unlawful for a person who is not prohibited from possessing firearms to make a non-NFA (National Firearms Act) privately made firearm (PMF) for their own personal use.
