    SOT stands for Special Operational Tax. If you are an 07 FFL you can pay the tax and get the 02 SOT, which is $500-$1,000 a year depending on sales. It means you can legally manufacture any NFA firearms such as suppressors, short barrel shotguns, short barrel rifles, machineguns etc. But you can only sell the machineguns to LE or government, or other SOTS. If you fail to pay the tax you either have to surrender your MG'S or sell them to other SOTS.

    Oh and you also have to give more blood money to the State Department with this bs called ITAR, which is another $2,250 a year... Basically they're saying you pay the Boss enough money you can do whatever you want... that we should be able to do for free anyways.. Merica

    Noticed the bit of mag housing in the left margin of the photo and figured it had to be a STEN II or V.

    Edit: Also noticed what appears to be canvas protective wrapping, so I assume it's a IIS or VS. Neat.

    11.jpg MKII. Before this COVID crap broke out and there were still a few kits to find I was going to build a 1919 in .30-06 but the ones I had my eye on vanished.

    Eh its just a normal MK2, I alternate between canvas and leather just for comfort when shooting. Even the barrel shroud gets pretty hot after awhile.

    Heres the ol M2, surprisingly those Auto Ordnance modern M1s hold up pretty good as a host.

    That would make my already expensive hobby even more expensive. Too bad.

    And you hear of folks getting into trouble all too often with FFL's and the ATF doesn't like this or that that they are doing. Oh well, looks like a fun job/hobby.

    Yeah
    Yeah it is a small price to pay though to be able to get to do what you love, build firearms that you love and many don't get the chance to fire or even own. I mean I always have loved just even the mechanics of how these revolutionary designs over the centuries worked and in some cases like the Sten how simplistic they were.
