Default 10 22

I watched a video with a guy shooting a fully auto 10 22! Is that legal to own or does it require a special license? And if not is it hard to make one do it. It just looked fun!

It is illegal unless you have a class III license however, they do make a hand crank kit that you turn like an old Gatling gun that is wicked fun. Its called the BMF activator

Any full auto firearm requires a special stamp and must be an existing gun listed in the BATF Registry. Making a full auto firearm is illegal with severe fines and penalties, not to mention a new roommate named Spike to keep you warm on those cold nights in a federal prison.

There was also some kind of a spring loaded trigger attachment that basically made your trigger finger full auto. I believe it's been outlawed though. I'd recommend the crank that's already been mentioned...yes they are wicked fun.

If the gun was built as a full auto and registered prior to 1986, then it is a legal gun. No full autos made after 1986 are legal to own uxcept by LE agencies and the military.

Unless you have a manufacturing license.That's how most of the videos of these new machine guns get posted.
But CaptCraig is correct,a civilian cannot own any full auto that wasn't registered with the BATFE by the 1986 cutoff date.
That's why they just keep going up in price,they used to be affordable before 1986.
