As my profile says I live in ny... I do not. I currently reside in PA and have a residence in NY as well. My question:

Is it legal for someone to make a lightning link and use it for personal use? I'm sure I'll get bashed for asking but since i'm a noob and found plans online I'd rather not get in any trouble. It seems like a child could make one. How well do they work. ? Do they damage any internals on the rifle?

You as a individual cannot manufacture a machine gun unless you have a SOT/Manufacturing lic. The machine gun had to have been registered prior to 1968 IIRC.

Maybe they didn't install Solitaire on the computers at the ATF. The F-troop boys are bored.

It is BS, but it's the way it is. You can buy one for less than $10,000 though and it's a great investment unless the ban gets repealed.

Anyone know if good ol' Hughes is still alive?
