That is incorrect. It is legal for anyone to own M16 fire control group parts as long as they do not own or possess a AR15. Most companies will not sell the parts to you without a FFL or proof you own a M16 (form 4) but that is just company policy not law.
Now i strongly suggest people don't try and skirt the law but i do like people to know what is law and what is third party policy.
