parts kits that are readily convertible to functional weapons, or functional “frames” or “receivers” of weapons, are subject to the same regulations as traditional firearms.

I din't found any comment here talking about modern radial tires like the Conti Road Attack (which is available for 650 RE). You guys are prefering diagonal tires, which is some kind of outdated technology. Is there any reason for that preference?
Last time I bought tires for a motorcycle was in the late 1980s, so outdated is all I know  ::)

Any actual references? Hearsay is cold comfort.
my understanding is that brian is correct, all perfectly legal to construct and possess firearms as long as you are not a "prohibited person" and they don't fall into some regulated category like full auto "machine gun" or SBR. for those, you essentially pay a tax and get a background check. selling them would be a very different matter. there's some legalistic "80% complete" breakpoint that distinguishes "parts" from "firearms". practically speaking, the ATF would be the people to ask.

When the CCCP went belly up half of its arsenal was untraceable, you could buy an AK for 20$. When Selenaki finally defeats Russia you might be able to afford a tank.

...you should worry more about the folks who are in it for the nukes, that would be you.

Well, they have been to the moon, and in the Gobi there is a lifesize aircraft carrier target on tracks. They build most of the electronics in the world. That's in and of itself interesting, noting that there have been several "Commercial ship vs. Naval vessel" collisions in the past several years, to the detriment of the fighting ships capacity to engage. Seems the navigation & collision avoidance radars all magically went fubar at about the same time. A cheap way to make your Navy a lot bigger, eh? And let's not mention the "denial of products & services" angle they are able to bring to bear. By the time you'd re-establish these services in your own country there'd be real problems.

No, I don't think it's in your best interest to underestimate China. Buy a shooting war over Taiwan would certainly sort it out.

I've done extensive research on this, including a conversation with the ATF.

There are many good reasons for building your own firearm. For me, I like making something with hard labor to call my own.

It is 100% legal, unless I build it with the intent to sell it. That is illegal.

My bike has CEAT tires, not Pirellis. Back in the day when I rode my bike every day in all weather because I did not have a car, Avons were my go-to tires. They did great in rain, which was my number one deciding factor.
