Is it legal, to own a full auto sear kit, in the package, not tempering with anything but just to own the kit and stare at it. period.

Are you talking about an auto sear for a semi auto rifle like the AR or the AK?

Well, I am not sure about "owning" but applying it to any existing non full auto and registered rifle/long gun is going to get you in a world of trouble I believe.

You can't "modify or manufacture" a machine gun without a ton of legal and federal regulations post the 1986 Machine Weapons Ban.

Ooohh ok. I am may be wrong but i think you have to have the required permits and tax stamps to even own the mechanism.

If it is legal in your state to own full auto weapons,and the sear is one that was registered by the 1986 weapons deadline,then yes,you could put it in your lower.But I believe you would have to have the lower marked (Selective Fire)for it to be legal.
I have a friend that has 2 full auto converted AR's,he bought the auto sear kits back in the 1980's,and did all of the legal stuff thru a local Class 3 dealer.

Have you ever seen the inside of a full auto AR lower? The cutouts are a bit more "open" than in a standard civilian lower for clearances of said "auto toys".

I asked if I could post pictures of the two side by side at one point and it was discussed. As the pictures are not here, I think you can figure out what the concsensus was.

Jon- please check me on this- you are the M16 guy- I just shoot them.

Ownership of the PARTS is not illegal IF you do not possess an AR that will accept them.

Most AR rifles CANNOT simply have parts dropped in, and become a functional full auto- a lie that is spread by the media. There are several parts, and NO PLACE FOR THEM TO FIT INTO.

IF you had a semi that you could drop a part into, and make into a full auto, THAT is considered to be "Readily convertible" and is already outlawed.

IF you possess an AR that HAS been modified, AND possess Full Auto fire control parts, THAT is considered "constructive possession" of a machine gun.

Pictures for you- http://www.quarterbore.com/nfa/registeredreceiver.htm
