    NO, absolutely not, unless you like spending your days and nights in a federal institution with a guy named Bubba as your roommate

    Gunner--You do realize you can't just walk in and buy a Full Auto gun at any old gun store. You have to find a dealer that specializes in Class 3 weapons. See what they have that is transferrable to you --there is a very limited number of weapons that were registered before the books were closed in 1986. These guns are very expensive from 4k for the cheapest POS to 6-7k for a decent gun to 20k or more for something like a Thompson. You also have to fill out paperwork go through a special background check and pay for a $200 tax stamp. Several states do not allow civvie ownership of these guns as well.

    PLEASE for the love of all that is good don't try and convert a gun!!! The BATFE will lock you up and you'll meet new friends in a Federal Penitentiary.

    Not that I want an explanation of something HIGHLY illegal, a one word answer will fit best but is it really that easy to convert?

    For a person with working knowledge of machinery and basic machining tools, yes.

    Safely converting a semi automatic firearm to full automatic, on the other hand, can be simple or complicated, depending on the design.

    Gunner your friend could have very likely been jailed for a long time instead. He should probably by a lottery ticket because the odds of this scenario playing out are really slim. If this did happen I am guessing it's 1 a small town cop and 2 your friend knows the cop pretty well. The Police took a big risk themselves if this really took place.

    I think I may smell a Troll here.....

    Gunner---Do you really want to go to Jail because if you attempt this you'll end up there??? The answer is NO! NOT LEGALLY! NO!

    If you mean lower receiver, sure, there are some around for sale. Usually run many thousands of dollars though, for registered NFA receivers.

    There may be a class 3 dealer with one for around 9-10k if you look, it's legal in your state and you pay the tax stamp etc..

    What State do you live in???

    As long as it's a registered NFA item and you pay for (and receive) the tax stamp, sure.

    It is not legal to convert a semi auto to a full auto since no new machine guns can be added to the registry and since we don't discuss how to break the law here this thread is closed.
