  1. Who do you use to ship firearms?

    This rule applies to all "concealable" firearms such as sub-machineguns, short barrel fireams, etc. If you can make the gun meet rifle specs, you (as a non-licensee) can ship it USPS. -Kristopher
  2. What where you doing today in 1986?

    Integrity: If you have it, nothing else matters. If you don't have it, nothing else matters. Very few things are worse than a shitbag FFL/SOT or a crooked NFA enthusiast, IMO. -Kristopher
  3. I need a lawyer - please read and recommend

    As always, Mike Todd gives excellent advice. I strongly encourage all NFA enthusiasts to request FOIA records on all machineguns they own. Even though most of the information is redacted, a copy of the original Form (1,2, whatever) is a good thing to have. It's nice to be able to say, "This machinegun, serial number xxxx, was registered on xx/xx/xxxx by ACME Firearms in Wherever, USA". When selling a machinegun, you should consider sending any FOIA records you have to the purchaser so they can be fully informed, too. The NFA community is great and we should fully support each other and help others as much as we can. In Liberty, KristopherH
  4. What where you doing today in 1986?

    Bloody idiots at ATF! A Class 2 I know of has apparently made at least one Post-Sample FAL sear. He designed it to work in a (NFA exempt) sear-cut semi FAL (G-Series and the like). If only the idiots at ATF had allowed your registered sears... Such is life, I reckon. -KristopherH
  5. What where you doing today in 1986?

    On May 19th 1986, I was exactly three weeks to the day from being born. Talk about lucky! I am extremely glad that I have had the opportunity and ability to own machineguns in my lifetime. May our Great Nation one day get back the freedoms we have lost over the years! In Liberty, KristopherH
  6. UZI semi sear need to be hardened?

    Is your SMG sear marked with an X? If so, it was tested by IMI for hardness and presumably found to be acceptable. If I understand correctly, the Uzi sear was intentionally designed to be softer than the bolt, so that it would wear before the sear engagement area on the bolt. That makes sense to me, as a small part is going to be easier and cheaper to replace than a block of steel. Against better judgement, I use a semi-auto sear in my registered bolt Uzi SMG and it has stood up pretty well. However, I understand there are some risks to doing it this way. I am inclined to believe that a trimmed down SMG sear would be just fine in a semi-auto Uzi. In the end, it is entirely up to you. It's your gun and your personal tolerance for risk. Good luck.

  7. UZI semi sear need to be hardened?

    I'm not a subject matter expert, but I think it would be good to go as it is. -KristopherH
  8. Would you shoot this rifle ???

    A buddy of mine once said, "You only die once, but you live everyday". I'd probably shoot it...once...just to say I did... -KristopherH
  9. Federal Gun Control Measures

    Right on the money, Mike. -Kristopher
  10. Don't shoot a hole in the boat!

    As an introvert, I am somewhat of a natural at social distancing. Been doing it my whole life. Never did like being in crowds much, sets off too many stimuli. In a crowd, I'm always looking for gaps so I can get the hell outta there. Hope this shit blows over soon before our economy totally collapses. -KristopherH
  11. Don't shoot a hole in the boat!

    A snowy/rainy day here in North Central Montana. The Old Man and I ventured out to look for some gophers to shoot. Shot at several gophers, nailed at least a couple with my Ruger Mark II. All in all, a good day to practice social distancing by hunting varmints. In Liberty, KristopherH
  12. Yes, provided it has the ability to fire automatically. I agree with Mike. Once one has defined what a machinegun is, he can then look at different categories of machineguns: light machineguns, heavy machineguns, submachineguns, automatic rifles, battle rifles, machine pistols, personal defense weapons, and the like. -Kristopher
  13. Let us assume: 1.) A "machinegun" is a firearm that fires automatically (or is capable of select-fire). 2.) A "sub-machinegun" is a smaller handgun caliber firearm that fires automatically (or is capable of select-fire). Therefore: A sub-machinegun is also a machinegun. Seems logical. What does everybody else think? -Kristopher
  14. Don't shoot a hole in the boat!

    As fun as that would be, I love shooting the little f#&% with my CZ 527 American in .22 Hornet. I love that damn gun, just wish the ammo was a little cheaper. -Kristopher
  15. The presamples are coming out in desperation OR

    If the timing was right for me, I'd take the plunge and get my FFL/SOT. The last couple of years have been pretty good for machinegun buyers, in my opinion. In Liberty, KristopherH
