Demilled XM16E1 lower receivers pop up very frequently on Gunbroker, but they are usually pricey.

Excuse my ignorance, but what's the point of buying one? Is it legal to weld back together and use?

A cut up M16 receiver, particularly the lower. Demilled uppers are pretty much worthless, unless you collect aluminum scraps.

That looks to be either a 601, 602, XM16E1 or an early 604 receiver judging by the buffer tube roll pin hole. Later 603 M16A1's and later 604's didn't have a pinned buffer tube.

What are the de-milled colt's worth? I know a guy who has maybe 10 of them and they look a lot better than the picture.

The ones he has look like they were cut not crushed.

Depending on condition, they could be worth a lot to a retro builder... original Colt parts from early models are always in demand. As for price? Have to cruise auctions and see what such retro parts are going for.

Also have to be careful that the receiver sections are demilled to current standards (3 torch cuts with 1/4" kerf) or the receiver sections are still considered to constitute a machinegun, even if they were properly demilled back in the 70's/80's with just narrow saw cuts.

The name of the manf. Some of them you can tell on the inside of the lower(you can see the weld marks). Some of them were really, really well done, and about the only way to tell is xray the lower.

Would taking a demilled M16 lower and re-welding it to a fully functional machine gun be illegal?

Not for normal peons of the citizenry...ANYMORE!
Before FOPA 1986 and the attached Hughes Amendment,
you could file a Form 1 to "make" a machine gun. Once approved
you would reweld the two or three parts and have yourself a M16.
BUT NO MORE.

Title II manufacturers can do it. I am not sure about normal Title II dealers.
They may or may not be allowed to FORM 1 a reweld. Either way, these
would not be transferable to citizens anyway, they would be classified as
a POST MAY 1986 machine gun. (or post sample, or post 86, etc)

I have wondered the same thing.

In reality, what's the difference betweena REWAT and this? The only thing that I can logically think of is that a rewat has always been a whole receiver - never destroyed. Hence it's always been a machinegun. Once you reweld, however, you've created a "new" machinegun and as such have violated the law.

Hence it's always been a machinegun. Once you reweld, however, you've created a "new" machinegun and as such have violated the law.

Rewats had to be registered in the 1968 Amnesty. Those that missed the deadline are forever contraband.

And FWIW, the demilled receivers shown above –– if you own both front and rear, and the edges meet or overlap –– is possession of an unregistered machine gun. ATF has changed the demil standards since those were chopped in the 1980s. There are many demils which suddenly became "restorable" and thus live MGs again when ATF changed the standards.

Today, the receiver must be cut in two places –– through the trigger group and through the magwell –– and the center piece must be destroyed. Possession of all three pieces constitutes possession of a live MG.
Really? Why do Form 1s still have the checkbox for reactivating a firearm?

That is for Dewats that were registered during, or prior to, the 1968 Amnesty. Most have already been rewatted (either via Form 1's or Form 2's). But there still are some registered Dewats out there.

Just to recap, there are five types of MGs –– two are registered, three are not:

––Registered, live and operational. (Whether transferable, pre-sample or post-sample.)

––Registered dewats, which transfer on a Form 5 and may legally be restored to operational via a subsequent Form 1/2.

––Demilled receivers –– destroyed to the point where they cannot be repaired to function, because of missing sections.

––Dummy receivers, which are designed so that they cannot be modified into a live gun.

––Unregistered contraband. This includes guns never registered, or parts kits which are able to be welded back together into a live gun.

I feel like I must be using the term incorrectly. Is there a difference between rewat and dewat?

I wouldn't pay that much for one. I paid $60 for mine, and I thought that was a lot.

Yep just a habit that I'm still not sure why its even done..I mean if a can or machine gun is owned by you what does it matter the number is known..Everyones VIN is exposed. Couple years later now and still no idea why I do that..Ah at least with photobucket it only takes a second or so..

When I was playing..Tell me this doesn't look good.. It was a where's Waldo kind of thing to see if anyone was paying attention. This pic was to show the Liberty Torch originally..Thats the can I got for my M16..

Out of curiosity, what if you took that mag well, chopped off the gnarled bits, and welded it to the back half of a semi-auto lower? Aside from being unfeasible, I'm just going to guess that that would be illegal, yes?

That would be kind of cool, even if it would be really expensive, to have a semi marked H&R or something of that nature. I'd guess some of the retro guys would like it.

I don't see a reason that would be illegal. You're using what is essentially scrap aluminum to build a title 1 gun. The only issue I would see is due to the markings, but if you were to have documentation concerning the build I don't see it being an issue.

Someone did that w/ an HK416 on HKPro

Gave up because it was so difficult to weld the aluminum.
Please, call me Joe

There is definitely something perverse about two men who carry guns 24/7 being so happy that others are giving theirs up. -happycynic

All this talk of hacked ones has to be depressing to more than just me..Here's my complete H&R set up for rimfire..Mine was one of 3 that came out of the H&R display..Not the fella that got the original 150-200 transferables..Think I have pieced together most of the origin of them now..

It's all condomed up so I can toss back all the original parts when I'm 70 and sell it.(well if I need to..LOL). It is a blast..

In action again..

The trigger pin hole appears to be out of spec. Tough to say on the hammer pin hole.

You might be better off buying a 10% 416 forging and "roll your own". Then have the fire selection marking engraved, then anodize the lower, then laser engrave with HK 416 D markings and all that jaz, then color fill the fire selection markings.

Have you tried contacting M60 Joe? I beleive can re-weld lowers
