    Question home built trades

    ok, you cant home build aks for sale with out a license, unless you build one and decide through nessecity or whatever to sell after the fact.(very gray area as i understand it). but what about trades with home built guns for registered guns, after the fact of course

    Same thing as I understand it. You can't sell, trade or give away homebuilts.

    Default Quick Question

    Where does a 100% receiver fall in the realm of homebuilt regulation? I did a 4473 on the receiver when i received it, is this still considered a homebuilt weapon, or does said regulation only apply to firearms built from weapons made from non-registered 80%ers?

    Actually, you CAN sell, trade or give away homebuilts on "80%" receivers, as per ATF letter:

    Interesting letter to the ATF

    A 100% receiver build, from a transfer paperwork angle anyway, is no different than any other normal rifle. There is still the liabilty issue on any rifle assembled by an individual though. Licensed firearm manufacturers carry millions of dollars in liability insurance coverage in case there is ever a problem. How much did Bushmaster's insurance company pay out because one of their rifles wound up being used in the "DC sniper" shootings? Who pays if the rifle you assembled turns up in a crime after it changes hands several times?

    I agree with the Kernel. More's the pity if the receiver has your name, city, state, etc. on it.

    To legally change ownership the builder has to stamp his name and address and a serial # on the receiver before he sells/trades/gives it away. At that point it is traceable back to the builder who made it and subsequent transfers through an FFL would be traceable just like any other firearm. Private sales are pretty much untraceable regardless of firearm origin, other than talking to each person in the chain of ownership, if they can find them.

    If one does not care to do it legally, then there is no way to trace them other than questioning the trail of people who owned it after you sold it.

    Why would anyone want to get rid of a gun? Keep it and it may one day keep you. Giving or selling any of my guns would be like getting rid of the family pet. Ah the smell of a woman and a well oiled gun.
