Full Auto Sadness...

So I was unwise and ignorant about a month ago and decided that I totally wanted full auto capability for my AR. Not for the .223, but for my .22 conversion! I got my hopes up because the internet is full of all kinds of smutty garbage that can easily fool you, the first being the cheap and readily available full auto parts you can buy, and second, the people that use confusing verbiage when they explain how one might obtain a "FULL AUTO."

I was reading up on it, and I went an entire page full of "just need background check and $200 tax stamp" and I got all anxious thinking "I can go down and buy a $20 full auto sear, a $20 select fire switch, pay $200 and get the lower registered, get the parts installed, and finally go enjoy some 0.8 seconds of ecstacy while 26 rounds of .22 go down range." Luckily for me, something slapped me in the back of my head and said "Wait a minute. You can't trust the interWEB! Go talk to someone in town who knows the truth." So I went down to the Class III dealer in Anchorage and I was destroyed by the truth... Primarily the parts that went "No, it has to be registered before 1986 to be transferable" and "$10,000."

I just want to unload a solid stream of cheap .22 lead into some paper at the range. Is that too much to ask for?? I mean, can anyone feel where I'm going? And here's another question: Can active military buy unregistered military weapons (like full auto SCARs from FN)? What about Retired military? and WHY THE HELL WOULD LARRY POTTERFIELD (who I think must be the friendliest guy in the world) SELL FULL AUTO PARTS ON MIDWAY USA??

Gatling trigger cranks for 10/22s are popular.

It ain't $10k your dealer is WRONG. I'm not sure about the 1986 part though.

Uh, you ever look at transferable NFA lowers recently? It gonna cost you AT LEAST $10K to get a hold of one, tends to run from about $10K up to $25Kish for something like a Colt. They are so expensive because there are a finite number of NFA registered weapons that can be transfered from person to person. YES it has to have been registered before May 19 1986 (Hughes amendment)
(This is all assuming you are not a dealer)

And the reason you see NFA parts for sale on sites like midway and such is to repair machineguns. If it were not for the NFA crap machinguns would cost no more than their semi auto counterparts as almost all the parts are identical.

Impact guns has a few 22lr full auto still, 2 I found at under 10K, $8,999 and $9,999. Yup, it cost to play. I would rather spend 200 and SBR one or 2 of my receivers, still debating going that route myself. But full auto anything cost money.

So, what happens if your NFA registered receiver breaks? Do you just have a REALLY expensive paper weight then? I would cry like a little girl if I broke a 10-20K gun that could not be repaired legally.

I have my eye on that 1919 at impact now... stupid WA state law not allowing me to have full autos.
