bradhe Posted June 1, 2022 Report Share Posted June 1, 2022 Was hoping for a little advice /guidance on the topic of constructive possession. (I appreciate not legal advice, but my question is generic.) Do I understand correctly post the Thompson decision that the key is to make sure you don't in your collection of parts and accessories anything that can only be used to assemble an illegal configuration? Example: I have several Semi AR rifles and and a couple of AR type Sig pistols (which are not compatible I think). I will take possession of an NFA M16A1 is the next couple of months (efile willing). I have intended to swap out all of the parts but the receiver for shooting. If I buy an 11" upper today, am I correct in assuming that is a no-no since I currently only have rifle lowers it can be assembled to? Once, I have the M16 in my possession though I can have the short upper either assembled or disassembled? Similarly, I would like to replace the fire control parts. Can I do that, knowing that I will then have an "extra set" of M16 fire control parts while having semi ARs? Second Example: I have an S&H HK sear in a trigger pack that has been divorced from its original host (host is registered SBR). If I buy a PTR 9KT pistol (MP5K clone) it comes with no stock and no front pistol grip. I know I can't add either while in the semi configuration (otherwise SBR or AOW). But with the sear pack assembled to it, can I add both? I think yes. More importantly, can I have those parts in my possession disassembled when the sear pack is assembled to another gun?
