i was wondering, is a stripped lower with full auto selector still be considered a ClassIII? I was told that it has to be a full lower to be considered ClassIII? But thinking that you can just buy a trigger group and plop em in there would negate rules? Is this true??? Thanks!

A stripped lower with an autosear hole drilled in it is a machinegun , A stripped AR15 lower with just a full auto selector in it is still just a title 1 firearm.

Here is how ATF feels about full auto M16 parts in an AR15:

"We advise any person who possesses an AR15 rifle not to possess M16
fire control components (trigger, hammer, disconnector, selector,
and bolt carrier). "

Note this text specifically mentions the full auto M16 selector.

Its still a machine gun by virtue of being a M16, it doesn't matter if it is semi only

so what was the point of this thread?



full auto recievers are registered as so the same goes for registered drop in auto sears.


wether you dont have parts with them or not that is what they are.

There is a myth that you can have a "stripped" M16 reciever with the 3 holes drilled, and it is ok so long as you do not build it up.
This myth is quite pervasive, and I have heard many people tell me this.
It just ain't so joe.

Please son, go back to watching the porn you enjoy so much. Even your screen name is silly---and that's before you asked your foolish question.

And why do I suspect you're somewhere betweem 15 and 17 years old?
