    so you used a 100% century FAL receiver... thats never been assembled and registered it as a pistol? or is the pistol registration just a crappy thing we have to do here in michigan....

    also did you move the gas block back when you shortend the barrel or did you just cut the barrel back to the gas block and rethread it and use para internals and weld the back end up so it cant accept a stock?

    pretty cool... i was thinking a pistol build would be the way to go for my 2nd build since we are not allowed to have short barrel rifles / shotguns unless its a C&R here in michigan... also been wanting to do this to a G3 to go along with my ak pistol, AR pistol

    I used a new receiver that was sold as a pistol receiver on the batf form.
    the bbl is on from DSA that was already shortened as were thr hand guards.
    the top cover and bolt carrier are para ones.

    any idea if the FFL had to log the bare receiver in as a pistol receiver? or just are a firearm aka bare receiver and then sell it as a pistol?

    ive talked to my local PD in mi and they seem to not want to register it unless it is engraved pistol... and the same was told to me by a FFL

    ive seen a ATF letter on the net....

    That is sweet and I hope that DSA still has the parts available to assemble something like this. Time to start buying the parts needed to do this build!

    If you want to build one cheap call DSA and ask for Billy, see if they have any of the short bbls in seconds, they were selling the handguards at KC as seconds as well as the bbls.

    You just made the perfect gun for the "zombie apocalypse", which I can't wait for. Bet it's good shootin'. "Just shoot 'em in the head, they seem to go down permanently when you shoot 'em in the head" (points if you can call the movie)
    los48503, yep, Mi blows...just ask me.
    Whatever site I read it on as a members tag line, it's the truest statement ever made.
    "Our forefathers would have been shooting by now"
    They would have a long time ago, when our government became self serving and lied so openly that the taste of disgust can't be cleared with bleach.
    WTF happened to our country?
