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??
