Not sure......, but I'm pretty sure that being in possession of a "Lightning Link" will get you 10-20!!

Perhaps the poster is planning on buying one legally.

As long as the lower shelf is cut correctly, it should work.

I dont have a armalite but a buddy has one. HE wants to buy a L.L. I know about the shelf but have never looked in a armalite.

Might be his question.

I am unsure of armalite lowers. Check in the Quartebore LL reference------>CLICK HERE

Yes, there IS!

I've got a couple of them. I think all of them were made by SWD.

The other point is, the lower receiver needs the lower shelf, and shoulder relief cut out. (Colt SP1 and all Bushies are factory correct. You also will need either a SP1 carrier or have your carrier cut in SP1 style. You can buy a new SP1 type from several places, Fulton, I believe DPMS, or just cut what you have.

I would highly (HIGHLY) recommend that you buy a KNS LL protector.

Also, I would recommend not shooting 9mm with a LL. Stick with rifle caliber, 223; 308; 7.62x39, etc.

So........, you have to register them each as a "Machine Gun"??

Transferrable machine guns, to include a LL, had to be made and registered prior to May 86.

I've been looking for one for a while but Ive never found any. Pretty sure that Bushmaster's need to be milled tho.

Bushmaster lower is fine. The carrier needs cutting to SP1 style.

Yeah I meant the carrier only, I didnt see one @ Fulton or DPMS

Yo, check it.

Lots of good stuff in the tacked posts on the top, esp. the ones with LL in the title.

They are already registered, and had to have been so prior to May 1986.. They are considered to be the same as this...
