Okay, I need to get something straight here in my mind. Last I knew, the having one (1) full auto part and an AR was a no no. The ATF could say you had a full auto.....
Now, how is having a modified M16 hammer to make a 9mm conversion work any different? Someone please explain this to me.....
Is it okay to have the hammer but not any of the selector parts? What's the word on this?
A modified M16 hammer is no longer a full auto part. The necessary modification is the removal of the auto sear hook, which takes about 60 seconds with a bench grinder.
An AR-15 hammer is essentially nothing but a modified M16 hammer, itself - although they're probably made that way now, and not ground down from original M16 parts any more.
Ahhhh. (Okay, I think it might have been a stupid question, but I figured better to ask then in trouble.)
What are full auto parts? is there a list?
Its got to be a short one.
hammer, disconnector, trigger, selector, bolt carrier, and (in the M16, but not the AR15) auto-sear.
