Yesterday the government was granted another 30 days on their extension to file their appeal to the USSC. The new deadline is now November 7th.

This is just idle speculation on my part, but...

What if the Feds are waiting to file until they see the results of the election? It's already common knowledge that several USSC justices will be retiring soon. What if they're waiting to file until they find out whether these replacements will likely be pro-RKBA or anti-RKBA?

If Kerry wins, the Feds file and hope that at least one pro-RKBA justice on the USSC is replaced before the Stewart case is heard. If Bush wins, they don't file at all.

Again, just idle speculation...

You're right, it's speculation.

It entails the home-manufacture of 'unique' MGs from assorted materials and loose gun parts...

If upheld by the USSC, the ATF would have to accept Form 1s for 'unique' home-made guns and conversion devices (sorry, no parts kits allowed)...

Could someone post a link to the actual bill?

Would a DIAS be considered a "conversion device," I wonder?

This is the case in question: United States v. Stewart, 348 F.3d 1132, 03 C.D.O.S. 9805

And this thread gives more discussion: full-auto weapons legal again?

And a link to the case itself: United States v. Stewart
