Default Hypothetical question mini-30 full auto conversion

Is it possible? Has anyone heard of this being done? Does anyone have any info on doing this?



Thanks

Step 1: Get on your knees and pray to Satan really hard. Burning a bound dove to death over an open fire as an offering to the devil helps in this regard.

Step 2: Mix two parts rubbing alcohol with one part gunpowder and one part powdered mouse brains, drink same.

Step 3: Gather 150lbs of fresh clay. Must be moist with living water... Rain, melted snow or river water will do. Then recite this traditional Jewish prayer to bring a Golem to life:

"Meir iz kakameyme shlemil shiker goyim shnorer nudnik."

The golem will asist you in your project.





Anyway, do we ban this guy or what?

Personally, I recomend that you consult with a representative from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, & Explosives. You know, just to make sure you get a professional assesment of all the technical aspects of such a daunting but, no-less fulfilling, do-it-yourself, project. And I'm sure they will be anxious to assist you in any way they can.
I think it could be a felony just to answer that question on a public forum, if I'm not mistaken. Get lost, rectal orifice.

Don't be silly... 99 in 100 odds this guy is from the ATF himself doing a "sting" op.

Yes and no... Kinda sorta.

It is not illegal to post information on how to *theoretically* convert a weapon to full-auto on the internet... Just as it is not illegal to post how to make explosives, chemical weapons, nuclear bombs or a booze still. The 1st Amendment makes it legal... Very, very stupid, but legal.

However, replying to someone else asking how to do so with instructions on how to do any of those things could (and most likely will) be considered any of various felonies... Material aid in committing a felony... Aiding and abetting... The list is long.

Regardless, as far as I know SecurityArms is not a website that allows discussion about any of those subjects. So unless I hear otherwise from TJ it won't be allowed.

Not that that even has to be stated... No one here is that stupid... Well, other than Tyler, but thankfully he knows about as much about firearms as your average Somalian.

Errr... That might be an insult to the Somalian.

And of course, why would you even WANT to convert a Mini 30 to that? Assuming legal means which are available, it would still make a lot more sense to acquire or register and make an M16 or AK anyway. (BTW, if you make and then register, you're fucked.) Not like there's a shortage of parts for those weapons, and they are better designed for that.

Default Well, it MIGHT be legal to do it.

If he is a registered Class 2 manufacturer/gunsmith, if I am not wrong, is legal to perform such a conversion for commercial purposes (to Military/LE, not to civilians) and for R&D.

But I bet he isn't so...

I can' tundersatnd why guys are going all out on this guy. his question may be kinda dumb, but think it s a resonable topic to discuss on a firearms forum. At least he is not selling kidneys or cheap viagra. If people can own automatics why can't they convert a semi to and auto, as you mentioned tehre are legall means to do so. Besides I have seen books availeble to be ordered all about how to convert glocks or barettas to full auto.

Well, prolly because there is a law of 1986 that forbids civilian ownership in the USA of any selective-fire/fully-automatic firearm made (or converted) after, if I am not wrong, May 19 of that same year.

No it doesn't, it just adds an extra hurdle, getting a special dealer's license or occupational one. But it's too much trouble unless you're really interested in pursuing selling or making automatics.
