I'm about 99.99% sure what you are doing is perfectly legal. The part of the gun that is regulated by the atf is the mechanics : the receiver and internal parts. The regulated part is registered to you. In the eyes of the atf you are just using an aftermarket stock. How do you get the 22 mag to work in the magwell for the Barrett and cheytac?

what he is doing, is legal. he's not manufactering to sell, he's modifying the guns to his own personal tastes.

the reciever is the only part regualted by the BATF. it's the only part that has the SN they ae concerned with and require going through an FFL to purchase.

correct.
2 years ago when i first got into guns, i talked to a Los Angeles ATF agent and a supervisor of firearms at CA DOJ about legality and if they see any issues with me dropping in an unmodified .22 action/barrel into an "airsoft stock." they said it was fine and saw no issues. they both said to follow CA state/federal law and class 3/ title II to make sure theyre not full auto, not suppressed, no SBR, and OAL over 26". done deal and off i went. yep the receiver that has the serial number on it is the actual firearm that the ATF/DOJ cares about - not the chassis. btw. there are plenty of gun owners that were doing these 7-8 years ago before i got into this. maybe thats why you see the aftermarket SCAR, MP5, G36, STG44, AR15 clones out there via Archangel, ISSC, Umarex, GSG, etc.

its legal to drop in a complete .22LR rifle into a chassis whether its made of plastic, metal, wood, etc. these gutted airsoft bodies are no different since theyre just made in cheaper plastic and metal. its just the closest 1:1 scaled replica. there arent that many aftermarket manufacturers who make centerfire clones so i just took it in my own hands just using a dremel, power drill and a table vice. it takes me about 5-10 minutes to dissassemble a chassis and drop the .22LR into another one. so i can play dress up every month with a new host.

Barrett/Cheytac mags are just hollowed out and i just use them as a shroud to cover the 22 magazines. its just to complete the "look" and has no real functionality.

correct. if i were to sell these, i would need an FFL to gunsmith these. its my own personal collection and for my son to inherit/play with when he gets older to shoot with us.

i went through a normal DROS process with an FFL but none of my rifles are registered.
