I'm intruged here because my cousin is talking about buying a stengun parts kit and then fashion his own receiver. he says he will have to pay the 200 dollar batf tax stamp thingy but now i'm curios will he have to pay an additional 200 just for the manufacturing sake?

so could you manufacture you're own select fire M16 receiver and parts. pay 200 dollars and the batf background check then be on your way with the cheapest select fire rifle out there?

disclaimer: I'm not saying any one should do this or that I am doing it. I am NOT. this is just an example for the sake of helping me understand.

Nope. Since 1986 you can not make any new FA firearms unless you are a manufacturer with a note requesting a sample weapon to be made. If your friend wants to make the sten a semi auto SBR then he can make it , but it must be a semi auto and the SBR because of the stock. He can make it semi auto with a pistol grip and not have to register it ( or pay the $200 stamp tax ). Just a thought.

Above is correct. Only the full auto arms already registered by May 1986 CAN be registered. No Mo. An SBR (short barreled rifle) or a suppressor is another matter.

Hmmmm ok I'll have to ask him EXACTLY what he is planning. Hopefully I misunderstood.
