So I want to buy a transferrable fun mode weapon. Problem: they

So I want to buy a transferrable fun mode weapon.
Problem: they are expensive as fuck. And I will probably never have that kind of cash.
So hear me out, what if I started buying parts kits, rebuilding them, and reselling them at a slight profit (im thinking 150 to 200 more than cost)
And I just steadily kept doing that until I had saved up enough to legally buy a fun mode weapon. Make my hobby pay for itself so to speak.

Would I need to license as a manufacturer with the ATF?

Im kinda hazy on the resale legality of parts kits and completed 80% lower type firearms. Like something about state lines/state laws regarding for sale vs personal use? Help me out here /k/
Also general parts kit rebuild thread.

If you're selling firearms for profit you enter dodgy territory.
If you're making a business of it (i.e. often enough to make actual money) you need an FFL.
Or you could chance it, the ATF isn't omniscient.

>manufacturing firearms
>selling for profit


Lets say you are able to sell them for 200 dollars of profit (protip depending on the parts kit... doubt it)

Lets say you want yourself a full auto M16 lower-- 15-20 thousand dollars give or take.

at a profit of 200 dollars each, youre gonna need to make about 90 guns to get to 17.5k

lets say you end up only making 100... double that to 180 guns

No go to ATF website and read up on who is required to have an FFL (It's actually clearly laid out for the most part)


Or, go with what your heart tells you. Be serious, what do you really think?

protip if you say "No, I don't need an FFL" u r dum

There are probably faster ways to make money OP.

>also, quit being poor
>not poor in dollars, you're poor in your mind, get investing instead of spending cash as fast as you get it
>>
>>27792360
Well first off Im currently spending my money as soon as I get it on student loans.
Not exactly impusle buying toys at the moment.
But I have actually considered investing if I ever saved up enough scratch to actually do so significantly. The only issue I see are 2 things
1: to make any real money at investing you need to buy in bulk, something I cant afford, probably not for a long while.
2: its not exactly a garunteed money printing scheme, you can lose all of that money overnight because some CEO gets caught with kiddie porn or an earthquake in chile destroys the companies mine.

I need to clarify a bit on my plan though. I thought it could be a fun way in the long term to build parts guns, resell them and kinpartsindulge my hobby and slowly accumulate enough that I wouldnt be taking money from actual expenses (or on credit) to pay for it.
>>27792335
But the the Assholes Taking Fun away team factors in

Also now that I think about it theres no way profits (which as >>27792335 also pointed out isnt exactly garunteed) would ever keep up with inflation of transferrable weapon prices.

I had an opportunity to buy a transferrable sten for 2500 in 2009 but was a broke college student and now 6 years later theyve doubled in price.
>>
>>27792274
Just so you know, there's NO WAY the ATF isn't monitoring this thread right now and recording everyones IP address, including mine.

OP, don't do it. That's FPMITAP stuff, unless you get an FFL first.
>>
>>27792519
Well first off tone down the paranoia.
Theres no way they can be everywhere on the internet at once, and secondly the purpose of this thread is to inquire as to whether an FFL is needed, nothing illegal or even nearly illegal has occurred.
Its not illegal to discuss stuff anyways.
For instance I could buy a glock 17 80% complete drop in auto sear "paperweight" and disregard the ATF laws stating that if I complete the sear it becomes legally defined as a machinegun, and then have a shill buy me a glock 17 to avoid looking like im engaging in "constructive posession" and bam full auto weapon for under 1,000 bucks. Totally illegal to do that. But its not illegal to discuss how such things are possible.
But my interest is in complying with the ATF so I have nothing to worry about.

what /k/ actually believes.
Were not engaging in illegal activity here. A curious citizen (myself) is talking about legal ways to make money with guns to legally buy more guns. The scary ATF monsters wont come for you, I promise bro.

>A curious citizen (myself) is talking about legal ways to make money with guns to legally buy more guns.

No. You're talking about very illegal ways to make money with guns. Building guns and selling them without an FFL is prison rape mode.

I hear they're making room in Gitmo just for you.

Jesus. Fucking. Christ.
Ditch the extra chromosomes, learn reading comprehension, and realize that my post
A) proposes an idea
B) asks if I need a manufacturers license
C) asks if its legal to do it without one
Make sense? Or do I gotta get out the sock puppets and turn it into a song?
>>
>>27792819
you seem really butthurt. prison will be rough for you.
>>
>>27792274
If they are 100 percany complete recovery no you don't need license becuase you are not making a gun.you are just adding parts but for 80 percants or even 0 percants you do
>>
They have thought of this op

You have to pay the "SOT" tax not just have an ffl

It will be cheaper just to save up for a transferable
>>
>>27792835
>>27792840
Thanks.
Honestly I always toyed around with the pipe dream of becoming some kind of small time niche type manufacturer but like I said. Its a pipe dream. I would practically need to already be rich just to afford the machinery and licensing fees.
The idea in the original post occurred to me that if it was so easy everyone would do it, but seemed either illegal, or legal but expensive/not profitable.

>>27792900
Go ask the guy with the trip Flandre I think he did something like you said and made some money.he is the cross dressing weeb of /k/.he also has lots of money apperanlty and has 3 tigr svd
>>
>>27793043
I know of him. Spoke to him once. Knew a lot about slav shit, claimed he was toying around with the idea of making made in america SVD clones. Also asked to have sex with me. Repeatedly.
I think a lot of his story is just his /k/ persona though. I got the feeling he already had retarded amounts of money before he started toying around with AKs and SVDs, just built a few parts kits, sold em, and claimed hed funded all his shit that way cuz it makes him seem more /k/ that way.

I may be wrong but I also havent ever actually seen anyone buy his shit, nor have I found it for sale.

That would make you a piece of shit scalper, somebody that nobody likes. Kill yourself.

>Would I need to license as a manufacturer with the ATF?
Read the NFA dumbshit, it's not hard. Also kill yourself.

People have been trying to do this shit for years, and mostly failing. You are not creative, it is not illegal, and you should kill yourself for being such an autist as to post this thread.

He's a software engineer, or something along those lines. I've never seen him claim he made a living solely building guns.

Wanna know how I know you are a noguns?
>>
>>27793889

Most at uppers are sold barreled

If he is selling bare ar uppers out of his basement

he is literally not making anything
>>
>>27793940

>All uppers are barreled upper assemblies

Different anon here. Stop posting.

>>27793293
Why are you still embarrassing yourself, OP? He's not mad, you're just talking about committing a felony
>>
>>27793293

Why are /ak/ threads still allowed? Containment thread? It's like 80 percent well adjusted adults here and then 20 percent annoying teenaged virgins drooling over imaginary women.

It does nothing but make this board creepy.
>>
>>27793955
>lying by saying "all" when the word most was used

Most uppers are not sold bare

It's a weak market

>>27793889

not that guy but your missing the point that literally zero profit would be made

Sell a lot of bare uppers do you

I know most gun stores carry a wide variety to meet the huge demand

>>27794088

Okay teenager.

I'm gonna go cry now, you've really really hurt me in the comfort of the house that I pay for.

You clearly have it all figured out, with your full time job, education, and comfortable tax bracket. I bet your wife must have been riding your ass all day to be this aggressive.

Wait... Anon, you ARE living on your own, right?

Sounds like I was right, you're throwing a little temper tantrum to try and build up your ego on 4chan of all places. How autistic do you have to be?
