doc is right again ,that woman at armalite don't know what she is talking about

Mr. G*******: Thank you for contacting our website. As stated on our
Website, we do not usually respond to technical questions via e-mail, but I
spoke to our Firearms Technology Branch (FTB) and was told the following:

"The Armalite AR-15 identified in the curio or relic list is a machinegun
that was manufactured by Armalite in California prior to 1960. The
semiautomatic AR-15's made by the new Armalite company in Illinois are not
curios or relics. A licensed collector cannot acquire a semiautomatic
Armalite receiver in interstate commerce. An AR-15 "upper receiver" is not
a firearm and may be acquired by anyone in interstate commerce."

If you have any further questions, please call our FTB on 202-927-7910 for
clarification. Regards,

Now just how hard was that to figure out???? Hum? They started the project in 1952 and it was tried and tested in 1957. It was never a "civilian" made semi-auto, it was a full-auto military weapon and designed as such.....hence it`s listing.....THEY DON`T EXSIST IN GREAT NUMBERS!!!! So make them C&R.....just try to find a complete one, as you cannot make one from parts..........GHEESH!!!! WOMEN?????? Thats why they just should answer the phone and one other thing.......well maybe two...........
