So what's the solution? Do i buy an grandfathered reciever in state or can i just take a flight to AZ of Fla or even somewhere closer. I've heard that we can purchase recievers that are not quite finished and just need a hole or two drilled out. I'm assuming that they have no serial number because they are not yet a fire arm and that MA frowns on that as well. I could just have a bro in NC place the order and then he could ship it to me. I do have an evil black gun of death and im not talking about my Mini 14 that runs like a clock with a crappy looking birch stock which when paired with pre ban 30 round magazines is much like an AR in so many ways but I would like to do a build just for chits and grins. Of course everything will be above board. I could buy something off the bulletin board at the club but ideally there would be no paper trail of any kind. I would never bury an illegal firearm on my own property. If the law prohibits any of this I will follow the rules because i am a good sheep. Thanks so much and enjoy the rest of the week. Kumbaya my btothers and sister.
