    So say you're an 02/07 in possession of a semi-auto firearm like a low-shelf AR15. What's the legality of dropping in a full-auto fire control group? Is it legal as long as the 02/07 maintains their licenses and destroys/re-converts it once they expire?

    Are you talking Class 2, Type 7 FFL? If so, I would be inclined to say that you'd probably need a demo letter in order to manufacture such a weapon. Otherwise, every Tom, Dick, and Harry would be getting their type 7 license w/ a class 2 SOT in order to get all of the post-sample fun shit.

    This is just an assumption, though. I have no evidence to back it up one way or the other.

    BTW, I believe a 03/01 need a demo letter in order to obtain post-samples, so I suppose that's another indicator that an 02/07 would need a letter as well.

    I don't think 02 SOTs need demo letters are they're manufacturers and not dealers.

    But aren't they still post-'86 weapons? Or does that only apply to transfers?

    I'd be curious to know how HK or Colt get by with building new NFA weapons. Do you suppose they have a demo letter from the POTUS or DOD or something?
