Full auto or not?

If you had the chance to get a full auto AR15/M16 (however you want to look at it) Would you get it?

Hell yes!
But... it's legal for me to possess one. Your tolerance for running afoul of the ATF, et al may vary if it's not exactly legal for you.. If you're still a LEO, I say why not?

Re: Full auto or not?

Well my thing is It's a kit built firearm and when I leave law enforcement then I'll own a weapon that would get me a felony and probably 2 years in the pen.

BUT I really like the gun and I would burn a bunch of ammo through it...lol Then again I could just get a class2 FFL and be ok...

Get the FFL...
If you go to a range and ppl see you with it, you never know what will happen.

Re: Full auto or not?

a few things for you to ponder whip.

No matter what anyone tells you, you cannot possess a machine gun that is manufactured post may 1986 unless you meet one of the following criteria:

1) you are a title 2 manufacturer of weapons.
2) you possess an FFL with SOT and have a letter of demonstration from a qualified law enforcement or military agency.
3) you are a law enforcement or military agency. (being a part of the agency does not make you legit. The agency owns the weapon, and may issue it to you according to their rules, but it remains the agencies.)


If someone is offering you a machine gun ( any weapon that fires more than one round with a single pull of the trigger) that does not involve extensive BATF paperwork, I suggest you consider that you are about to ruin your career, and make all haste away from that individule if you do not plan to hook him up and take him for a ride with the happy lights.

You are correct. I was doing research and basically found what you said. It's sad but I will not be getting this rifle... /cry

Re: Full auto or not?

Or you could just join the agency of John.

Question, when a weapon fits the pre-'86 criteria but is transfered ownership via way of estate, what must one do to make sure they are in compliance?

Re: Full auto or not?

BATF NFA form 3 must be submitted and approved. Said weapon should be transferred to a qualified SOT dealer in the interim.
