I am no expert in federal firearms regs, but I wouldn't want to be in the same room with that set-up.
...As Randy Weaver & David Koresh found out ......:bolt:IrishCop said:BATFE guys typically have NO sense of humor.
That's my understanding.Wouldn't it be perfectly legal to screw a 16" barrel into the Ruger receiver (the part with the serial number) and then do anything he wanted to the lower half...?
I haven't been paying much attention to the regs for at least 15 years, but IIRC, you can go pistol to rifle without federal paperwork. Going the other way is the problem.Wouldn't it be perfectly legal to screw a 16" barrel into the Ruger receiver (the part with the serial number) and then do anything he wanted to the lower half...?
yea, but in real life( not the movies) you burn your nose off- or in his case, nose catches on hammerThe best response in that thread was: "Buy a Buckmark rifle."
What's the point of cobbling that all together when the legality is so murky. An average law enforcement officer who sees that contraption will arrest the guy for possession of an illegal weapon. They will search his house, seize every gun and gun part and everything they think might be a gun part, seize his computers to see who he has been conspiring with and go through his finances. In six months or a year he might get his guns back by which time he's bankrupt or they have found other contraband in his collection or on his computer.
My personal favorite in this theme is the shoulder stock Lee Van Cleef used in For a Few Dollars More.
