Lots of places sell those. Nothing wrong with selling them some people do have Class III AK's and need spares. Of course if you only have a semi auto rifle and buy those parts it could be considered conspiracy
"We ARE NOT the ATF. lolz"
No. You need some modifications to your receiver. Such as a rail notch and an autosear hole. Else, anyone who has an AK kit and an AK is in violation, and thats not true
I know I mean they posted a picture of it why would anyone pay for it when they can make it themselves now . . .
oh wait you meant the legal thing . . . I think the local army navy surplus place back home sells a how to book for that too.
I'm not quite that dumb
Irrelevant, the ATF has tried to nail people to the wall just for having parts which when combined would result in a weapon they are prohibited from having. They call it constructive possession and while charges might not stick it would be a pain to deal with.
Read 1992's US v. Thompson Arms for a good example of where such a thing was argued, and even successfully in 1 court.
Tried but not successful. You bring up the Thompson Arms case which proves my point. The problem with the courts is consistancy. You have Thompson Arms which obviously shows that you can have a short barrel along with having a rifle. Then you have US v Kent where someone was busted with a short AR upper and having a rifle. Quite ridiculous if you ask me, to have 2 directly conflicting points. So much for proving intent
Summary: The entire gun legislation world and the courts are fucked up and need change.
I will quote the important part of my statement one more time
The charges may not stick but your still going to be out a shitload of money for legal fees and shit, there was a story I posted not to long ago where they charged the guy cause he had a manual on how to make a rifle he owned full auto, didnt convert it but they still charged him with conspiracy or some shit.
