that is correct. you cannot get approval (stamp) for converting a new gun to full auto. if you do it anyway you get 10 years in prison for each converted gun.

if you are a homicidal drug lord the batfe (eric holder and barrack hussein obama) will gladly sell you one, honest citizens get put in prison.

As the folks have said- Only those full autos registered with the ATF by May 1986 can be transferred to a private citizen. No addtional FA's can be registered. A LEGAL, transferable M16 is around $16,000. PLUS the $200 tax and transfer fees to the FFL.

hopefully the OP gets the message that he isn't going to get a legal fully automatic firearm for $1000.

i am going to go out on a limb here and ask this question, why do you feel the need for fully auto firearm? have you ever fired a fully auto weapon? do you even realize how fast they use ammo and how expensive it is to shoot one? plus they are not very accurate when fired fully auto. i have shot several fully auto weapons from time to time, and they are fun to shoot, but from a personal viewpoint, for me they just aren't practical or useful. even most of the military went to 3 burst fire control on their automatic weapons, for better control and better use of ammo. i am not against someone owning them if they have the means to afford one, i am just expressing my opinion on owning one personally, and if given the chance tomorrow to go out and shoot some, i would be there in a second and enjoy every minute spent pulling the trigger.

You can make anything that you can get a registered reciever for. I only have $1200.00 in my m2, which I bought parts at a gun show 35 years or longer years ago, but I have around $18,000.00 in my AK 47 which I bought from a man needing the money about 2 years ago. We just went through a class 3 dealer and had it transferred. The fees cost me three hundred dollars and it was just as easy as getting a ccw. The only difference is they wanted to know why I wanted it, and when I told them I was a collector, they were cool with that. I never got any more questions before I got my weapon, 63 days later.
On the other hand, I got more hassle about buying a suppresser because I had it made and getting something registered that is new takes a little more time and a few visits to homeland security, but I got er done.
If you get caught hunting with one, you will end up in a Federal facility, minus a few thousand dollars and a few years.

howdy chewchew! with the high cost of fully auto weapons and that they are getting scarce, it tends to eliminate the wannabe's out of the equation. most of the owners now are serious collectors and with all the red tape and the high costs of owning one, they're are more than likely very responsible gun owners. people who tend to spend many thousands of dollars for fully automatic weapons tend to be older and more mature and understand appreciate the this type of weapon.

now if i had the disposable income to buy any fully auto firearm, it would be a Thompson submachine gun. why? 45 ACP, impractical, hard to control firing fully auto, not the most accurate thing in the world, but oh so much fun to shoot! i had a chance many years ago to shoot one, it took days to wipe the grin from my face!

I wonder if the BATFE runs any sting operations out of the Corpus Christie area?

Its no headache, no hassle.

You do your paperwork, send it in, and wait.

The wait is the hard part.

Do you own anything NFA?

I don't know who you have been talking to but I can assure you that you will not be able to buy a legal full-auto rifle for $1000, not even close. The sellers of these rifles know their numbers are limited and charge BIG bucks for them.

actually i have tried and been approved, but due to the current sheriff in office that we have to get approval through won't allow citizens in his county to own fully auto weapons or silencers. maybe next november when the elections are held, we can get a more firearm friendly sheriff. but for now, it's not going to happen, no matter how much money or who's approval i get. so the answer is no i don't, just been down this road before with this.
