Yep. Apparently he thought he was being sneaky by advertising them as "pen holders" and "bottle openers".

They're direct copies of the old Lightning Link.

Reading the article, he sold a piece of metal with an outline etched on the surface. An ATF agent bought the piece of metal, cut it up along the outline, and put the reuslt in an AR-15. Seems clear to me that the ATF agent created the part and converted the rifle.

We could take that stance all day. The agent will not be charged for doing his or her job. All a lawyer has to do is prove intent. Why would you make this item if not to use it for exactly what the agent did. He may have had the best of intentions, but a terrible item to use for your business Big Grin

This is my thought too. As I recall, you and/or I can go online and find the drawings for the auto sears, do the transfer onto metal and poof, have what he was selling.

With that caveat though, I also found just having the parts in your possession can result in felony charges.

So he sold flat sheet of metal with an etching? I wonder if he wouldn’t have gotten in trouble if it was in crayon instead.

About time! I was getting really sick from all of these home-converted machineguns being used in crime on the daily! Roll Eyes
