Well that kind of puts a damper on things. Who wants a wore out full auto from almost 30 years ago??? I would think that a person with the proper licensing would be able to at least make their firearm full auto.

I never had an interest in FA's. I was just curious about the law and all that. Besides, say some idiot took and filed the reset paw thingy in his rifle or whatever....... how the hell would LE know with out actually hearing the firearm or firing it themselves????

Nope, $200 to Uncle Sam and a thorough Federal background check complete with fingerprints etc. Not nessesarily my idea of heaven but it's the law.

It goes a lot further than that...if you have a semi that malfunctions and goes full auto...you are guilty of a Federal offense....in some cases, the mere possession of certain full auto parts can land you in prison...because the part is considered the machine gun...additionally, you can go to prison for just TALKING about converting firearms to FA...Conspiracy don"t cha know...
All that being said...if you're close enough, you really have to go to Knob Creek (Westpoint, KY) for one of the twice yearly machine gun shoots...http://www.knobcreekrange.com/

Thanks for the laugh! Every time I hear that old wives tale I get a good giggle out of it. It won't work, at least not as intended. If you're lucky the hammer will just follow the bolt as the first round is chambered, and nothing will happen. If you're unlucky, the hammer will hang just until the bolt locks up, and then the hammer will fall with no finger on the trigger, and the whole magazine will spray out in one burst. The full auto parts and burst parts fire control sets bear little resemblance to the semi auto version. A simple Google search would show that. The FA parts WON'T fit in a SA lower made after the early 90s. And, NO, I won't say why. Some advice; go find the person that told you that and smack them up side the head; HARD!
BTW, doing that with a semi auto rifle is good for a Federal felony conviction worth 10 years in prison and a minimum $10,000 fine last time I checked. It's buried in the ATF website in the regs somewhere. Funny thing is, you could have legally gotten one of the cheaper full autos for that 10 grand.

Go to the you tube site and search "bump fire". You'll get a bunch of hits showing idiots spraying lots of ammo in a generally downrange direction by using various methods to take advantage of the recoil of semi-auto rifles to trip the trigger repeatedly. Some of them actually resemble full-auto fire. Owning some stock in an ammo factory is a good idea before you get too involved in learning some of those techniques!
