Since rule of law is out the window, and we are governed by tyrants, the line is always changing and what pretends to be law is always arbitrarily changed by the tools of the tyrants at the batfe-ces. Olympic used to build ARs in the 1980s with MANY M16 parts in the fire control group (which constitutes the bolt carrier, bolt, the hammer, trigger, disconnector, and sear), but now they can't without it becoming "constructive possession of a machine gun" (a nice little phrase our tyrants have invented to trap us and steal our rights and our property). Well I was at a gun store today, and a customer was looking at a windham weaponry AR15. He opened the gun and partially pulled out the bolt carrier and said it was an M16 bolt (although he was pointing at the bolt CARRIER and it's design). He then looked at a Del Ton AR and said it was a different bolt (I did notice that the bolt carrier was different). Now, since the bolt carrier is part of the "fire control group," I thought you couldn't have ANY part of the fire control group in an AR15 be an M16 part (i.e. hammer, sear, trigger, disconnector, bolt carrier, and bolt). The lovely part is there are tens of thousands of guys out there who have older ARs with M16 fire control parts, who I suppose are "grey area felons." The tyrants won't do a full scale recall because they don't dare, yet I've heard of court cases where people have been charged with "constructive possession of a machine gun" for having an m16 fire control part in their AR (or even in their HOUSE, if they have an AR also).
NOW, I don't expect anyone to answer this in the legal sense because we don't live under rule of law anymore (another case in point that we don't live under the rule of law, and instead live under the arbitrary rule of tyrants, is there is no definitive number of guns you can sell privately before you are "engaged in the business," and thus our tyrants keep us in fear, keep us guessing, and always keep us in danger from their aggression in the name of the law which is not even defined). I'm merely asking, based on CURRENT RULINGS from our tyrants, can you put ANY m16 fire control part (again, I'm referring to a bolt carrier mainly since this guy at the store claimed it was an M16 "bolt" although he was pointing at the bolt CARRIER, but also an m16 hammer, trigger, disconnector, bolt, or sear).
I've heard that ANY m16 fire control part in your home, if you also have an AR15, constitutes "constructive possession of a machine gun" in the dictionary of our ever advancing/twisting/changing/lying aggressive federal tyrants. Thus, I find it doubtful that this was actually an m16 bolt carrier in that windham weaponry AR today. Could it have been?
