Lmfao. You got that right. I've seen "gunsmiths" that can't build an AR that functions. Lol

Heck, I've seen that on a popular TV show. They tried to act like they invented the piston driven AR too (of course, without actually saying such).

i know it doesnt make any sense but thats how it is with some companies. just find a friendly ffl type to order for you
Hence my saying vague. This is just something I read in a book. Something about when nfa was enacted you had to register every fa firearm or make them inoperable? I didn't really follow. I wasn't even a twinkle in my daddy's then. I only dabble in the fa firearms at work. This firing pin issue is another quandry in itself. Guess I have to settle for "company policy." Still seems stupid to me.

Sorry Jon. Double post. Has some issues there. I'm not tech savvy.

Fixed it for you. "Render inoperative" means permanently. As in take a cutting torch and make 3 pieces out of the receiver.

Really, it's difficult to render anything still in one piece inoperable. I know of a guy who bought an ornamental cannon. He used a gouging rod to remove the plug that was welded in the barrel. Then used a jackhammer to get the concrete out of the barrel. I have never seen this cannon with my own eyes but from what I hear he got it to fire. The things people will do with tools and a little free time never ceases to amaze me.
