Drop in felony

Tam has a video of a Glock with some drop in parts going full auto:

It used to be that you needed a file, an Arkansas stone, maybe a Dremel, and a fair amount of mechanical ineptitude to mess up your heater.

Yup. Also, we now have case law that says a malfunctioning gun could be a violation of the National Firearms Act. So be careful out there, even beyond shooting yourself.

    This is why I’m always shy of the “drop in parts” industry in general. The people who make these parts may be fine individuals but they were not the engineers who designed the gun initially.

    I like the kit nature of drop-in parts mostly because it reminds me of building plastic models as a kid, and at that age I might have tried to shoot one but I think I’m over it now. I’ve built a few motors and done small-engine work but on a single-cylinder piston firing device like a gun I only learned to re-load.

    I have only ever owned three guns that fired full auto due to malfunctions. One was due to a sear spring breaking on a Budsichowski TP-70 .25 ACP, and two were JC Garand-derived weapons, a Mini-30 and an M1A/M14. Both the rifles had problems because of changing their stocks, and the new ones fitted improperly in minor ways, and the rifles functioned like an Akins Accelerator.

    I have since sold all three, with appropriate warnings to the buyers to get them smithed.

    Didn’t Olofson go to prison for “transferring” a “machine gun” i.e., loaning a malfunctioning semi-auto. Didn’t the owner of the subject pistol just do the same thing?

    I will send this to my cousin we were just talking about this this week!

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
