    If you own a functioning AR 15 rifle? Notice I did not say that the trigger group is installed, I just said if you own an AR 15 rifle. Thank you for your help.

    I doubt it. Thier pretty liberal with the constructive intent stuff.
    I'm assuming the full auto sear would be specifically what your referring to, iirc that's the part that has to be on the register

    Nothing screams poor craftsmanship like wrinkles in your duct tape

    I've never heard that before, and I consider that to be pretty poor advice considering we are talking about a Felony...

    To the OP, I wouldn't take a chance.

    And are you talking about owning an unregistered auto sear? That seems to have some issues as well, but I am no legal expert.

    Maybe I worded that poorly. I've heard of people getting thier ass in a Crack for having the parts to make something but no proven intent to build it. He asked if it was legal to own it but not intend to install it. That's what I was referring to as constructive intent. I believe that was the atf's term for this situation.
    I wouldn't risk it, I don't look good in prison grey.

    There it is. You may never get caught, but if you are caught the penalty is very high. Is it worth it? I don't think so.

    Of course it's legal. Just as long as it's installed in a legal receiver, you know, with the proper tax stamps and such...

    Thanks guys. I was curious because I was playing around on gun broker the other day and found a full auto trigger group for sale. I was just wondering if it's legal to buy it and have it.
