The 1986 act forbids PRIVATE OWNERSHIP of said automatics made after 1986 unless you have a seller or manufacturer license, yes, but even then, you can own them only for your working/business purposes (it's a felony to exploit such retailer/manufacturer licenses only to purchase or make full-autos to embiggen your personal collection).

In sweden it is possible to own a fully automatic weapon if having a special collectors license, but conving the local policeoffice to grant you one is nearly impossible. But through the military or National guards you can obtain military weapons and the possibility to shoot fully automatic foregin weaponry.

It's legal in the U.S. so long as the individual applies for (and granted) a Class-III license. I've known private owners who have maintained and owned multiple full-auto and select fire weapons. None as manufacturers and several who weren't firearms brokers.
You can own a silencer under a class II form/license.

However the legality, the first response should be to consult a regional BATF standards and state laws on the ownership of said weapoon. Secondly should be the information that the individual desiring the weapons is required to follow federal laws and regs to legally own said weapon.
None of us here are obviously Class-III and therefore are unprepared to suggest how he go about getting those answered.
A simple, "no, we don't know nor promote/condone such modifcations.
So long and thanks for all the fish.
