It's my understanding that some of the currently manufactured AR-15 lower receivers are not compatible with the Registered DIAS. What kind of work/machining must be performed on these recievers in order to get them to accept the DIAS? Are there machinist's drawings or diagrams available that show how to accomplish the necessary modification(s) to these receivers?

Ummm. Post this over on the Full Auto section of the site, along with a picture of your registration papers (block out your name and address if you're so inclined) and you'll probably grt some answers.

It's just kind of hard for us to quite asccept that someone who has a REGISTERED auto sear, and spent the bucks to get it, doesn't already have this info. Especially when it's his second post.

No insult intended, but it is kind of strange

It may be more appropriate to post this on the full auto side, but I don't see anywhere that he said that he already 'has' one/paid for one. He may just be asking so that if he decides to get one in the future, that he can have a compatible lower. Don't think there's anything inappropriate about that.

Right, what he said. The "ones we don't speak of" have us trained to not even speak of the evil full autos out loud or write about them.

Sorry my response upset you. As the 25+ year owner of a registered select fire AR, who got his first NFA weapon (Thompson M1 model) over 30 years ago, I just have a problem with guys who either have spent, or are condidering spending, multi thousands of dollars on an RDIAS, and don't yet even know what it will fit.

My experience is that such people are almost always klunks who are either lawbreakers, or condidering becoming such; especially when it's their second post.

If that bothers you---have a nice day anyway

It's this type of thinking that allowed any and all gun control laws to get on the books in the first place.

ashields you ignorant ass.

Don't you know that if you really are on the up and up you would have been born knowing everything like shamayim was and wouldn't have to ask stupid questons.

First Post Alert!

First off, greets to everyone on the board. I've been reading here for a while but just got around to registering. I think this is a great board for Ar's.

Having a lower that takes a DIAS doesn't make me a criminal nor does it mean that I'm going to drop one in unless it an RDIAS. It just means that my receiver can take a DIAS. Wanting to know if the receiver I'm about to buy takes a DIAS is just knowledge. Period. Have done nothing illegal.

Likely:
1) September 14 comes and we all get to build our rifles with the "evil" parts as long as no new ban is enacted, which doesn't look likely.

Probably be struck by lightening first (multiple times):
2) September 15 comes and everyone here on the board buys a lotto ticket and wins.

3) September 16 comes and the SCOTUS rules that the 9th Circuit Stewart decision will be upheld in all states.

Maybe Ashields is just a wishful thinker and is planning ahead for #3 above. I know I am.

Crips, you got me there. Of course, September. Tinfoil hat, I don't think so. I surrendered to my implant many years ago.
