Raping and pillaging and robbing banks....???????? Come on now. I know what the rules are pertaining to selling home made guns.....A reciever flat is not considered a firearm so whats the problem. I cant figure out why you would need a manf. license to make a flat?????????? For what I have in mind the person already has a manufactureres license but why would you need it?????? Im working on a deal for 1.5mm reciever flats fully heat treated and with the correct demenisions. Now its not considered a firearm so whats the hangup????? Ive got it all covered what ever I need. Im just tying to figure out the legaleties of it all. As I see it.....which may be wrong.....a flat is no different than a slant brake or pistol grip. As I know it flats are usually not marked are they??????? I know when its bent it changes the whole deal...now you have a firearm.Tomovich said:It is perfectly legal in America, for now, to take that flat with holes in it and bend it up and make YOURSELF a weapon. No problemo. Go for it. After you own it for awhile (say a year or so??) you could even sell it to a buddy or family member for example. Start selling them to "people"?? In quantity? Sure. It would be easy and you could do it. It would also be easy to go into a bank and steal money at the point of a gun, or say kill your neighbor. Or how 'bout some raping and pillaging while we're at it? All easy to do. But all those things, like selling your homeade rifles for profit, ARE illegal. :goof:
Slanted muzzle brakes?? Make a million of 'em.........no laws about making those.
Thanks, that is what I was thinking. I may be able to have qaulity fully hardened flats made with the correct demensions all cnc punched. But leave them flat to dodge all the BS. I know theres a market for a qaulity receiver with no problems. They would be 1.6mm or 1.5mm, not sure yet.Tomovich said:Making flats? You never actually asked that question per se. To make a flat you need no license, no stamping, no words, no numbers, no nothing. All the "legal stuff" starts after you bend it up. A flat is a paperweight (said long ago) and therefore, in itself, needs "no nothing" to make.
:smile: I totally know and understand that. But since there are no psychics working for ATF (they think they are probably) that can tell what's in your head, notice I made a point of suggesting keeping it for a year or so before selling which would suggest the intent was never to "engage in the business".ACMcom said:Tomovich, whether you make a profit is irrelevent. The word used in the law is transfer, not sell, so you can't make a firearm with the intent to give it away for free. You have to intend to use it yourself at the time you make it.
