Parts Kits

shootclubshootclub Member Posts: 10 ✭✭
WANTED: you to know.
Bought a PPSH41 parts kit, from Inter Ordnance, in 1999.
Today, I received a registered letter from BATF. Basically it say the torched cut receivers are still machine guns and are illegal to own.
It says that I have 3 days to contact them and "voluntarily abandon" the parts kit.
Just for your information.

    Didn't you receive a letter with your parts kit from the BATF? It is possible that the threaded portion of the receiver wasn't mutilated enough for their liking.

    If you know it all; you must have been listening.WEAR EAR PROTECTION!

    According to BATF, very simply, Once a machine gun receiver - Always a machine gun receiver. It doesn't matter what condition it's in.

    If people are serious about changing the laws to allow machinegun registration (which I would approve of), we need to get the message out to our leaders. When they think of automatic firearms, they think of criminals and crazy right wing people. We need to get the message out that there are people who approve and that we are a growing number.

    BTW, you can get machineguns registered to you provided they were registered before May 19, 1986. For the rest of us who want to register an affordable auto, we're screwed.

    Instead of firing many round extremely fast, I prefer to shoot very large rounds very quick.

    Today, I purchased a Beowulf upper for my Bushmaster XM-15. If you don't know what a Beowulf upper is, just mouse on over to http://www.alexanderarms.com

    It defines HOMELAND DEFENSE!

    Later

    All ATF has to do is get the shipping records from UPS and you are then known to them as buying something that they may be able to bust you for
