I have all the parts for my AR15 build except the upper assembly, which is taking awhile to ship. Please excuse my ignorance on this, but is it possible to acquire a license to convert the AR15 to a fully automatic M16? I understand what parts are required, but I am ignorant of the legal issues. Thanks in advance.

to expand a tad - due to legal restriction, no NEW machine guns can be mfg except for non-governement, military, or leo use. You can only buy a registered M16 lower and they arent cheap and still require the $200 tax stamp

Only with the proper license. It is not cheap.
Let us never forget, government has no resources of its own. Government can only give to us what it has previously taken from us.

If you have an 07/02 manufacturing license you can. You must be in the business of manufacturing though. You can't just pay the fees for a year and build one. Once the business is closed all of the machine guns must be destroyed or transferred to dealers/sold to LE.

Thanks Jaq Frost and all. I was thinking the 07/02 FFL might be a route, but not if I have to transfer it since it really wouldn't be a business. It leaves me wondering how that squares with the 2nd Amendment. Thanks again all.
