    What's the going price for that? Asking for a friend.

    Yeah but if your a machine shop and someone come in with a part they want made how are you supposed to know what it fits? Some laws are stupid! Like not being able to sell something like a red dot scope out of the country! Dam things are mostly made in China and if a Terrorist wants a few he can buy them anywhere and probably direct from China! Anyone can buy an 80% completed frame, does that mean they can take it to a machine shop and have it finished? Heck they sell the jigs and fixtures so the average guy can finish it at home. I thinks the Law should get back to doing what they were supposed to be for catching the bad guys not playing political games.

    Not for that level of work. Being an FFL comes in many flavors and building Title II gear is up towards the top.

    Never understood that, all the cons and none of the pros.

    Cloners are a weird crowd though.

    yep,never discount any stranger as being a cop,or an informer...........years ago,the cops used to come around my shop of a night.........I had something they needed....What?.......a big trolley jack,jack up the wheels of the patrol car,put er in drive,and run up the miles while the cops played cards,drank ,and had girls come round.......you should have heard some of the stories of setting guys up,and "warehousing busts" for when the stats were needed.

    Huh? If I screw a solid piece with a small hole through it onto the end of a barrel, it's NOT a suppressor so it is NOT illegal.

    Maybe they think it just looks cool. They probably also added a wing onto their Japanese sports car.

    The ATF sent their goons to my neck of the woods when Obama announced "under the radar" gun control measures. I DO NOT make guns or gun parts. One day some skinny tweaker came in to my shop asking me to finish some 80% receivers. When I said no he asked if I would "rent" machine time so he could do it himself. I said no and told him to leave.

    A few days after ATF goons showed up because they "heard" I'm making firearms and they just wanted to "have a look around" to make sure. I told them HELL NO and to leave the property immediately and if they ever come back they better have a warrant or I will call the sheriff to remove them for trespassing. They of course said the "well if you have nothing to hide you won't mind us looking around will you." They never came back. I later found out just about every machine shop in the region had the same scheme perpetrated on them as well.
