Legality, I don't know. But if I owned one I wouldn't tell a soul.

Not illegal with the right paperwork, tax stamp paid, etc.

It would have to be a pre-86 registered auto sear in order for it to be legal for the general public to own.Then you would need to fill out the paper work along with a $200 check to the BATFE,and wait until they OK everything and send you a Tax stamp for the item.

Wait, if you did all the legal work, would it actually be legal to put one in a standard AR-15 to make it full auto?

U would have to do ur research. IL no way they wont even issue the stamp. unless its for a police dept. It varies from state to state. Lots of rules. Lots of time and money
