What is the availability of the Scar 17 in select fire. Are these available in the civilian market as a Class 3 item?

I think youtuber kiwitedferny from New Zealand just bought one. There probably are more FA's out here in US. Imagine how expensive they are gonna be tho...

Its not the rifle thats expensive, its the licenses you need to possess to purchase the rifle. Sarge or another SOT on here can clear that up.

Is that true with a Scar? Wouldn't it have to be a transferable item and as such wouldn't it have to have been manufactured and registered with the ATF prior to May 19, 1986 to be transferable between citizens? Did a Scar exist in 1986?

Id wait for Sarge to answer that one. It is possible though. A guy I work with has an FFL and SOT license and has multiple FA firearms. He was showing me a distributor list for MK17s and MK16s and all sorts of other awesome FN stuff that he could buy.

I can't see how this is what it appears to be especially at this price. Something is missing from the fine print. Scar 17 MK17 Select Fire Lower Receiver 308 : AR15 Parts at GunBroker.com I don't know how it could be a transferable item and can only assume for $1099 it is not what it appears to be. Quick question - I am new here and I can't get my messages to format into separate paragraphs or put spaces between lines. What am I missing? Thanks in advance!

I did read that - over and over again. I called a friend who is a Class 3 SOT dealer and he surmised that it is A - a very poor description, B - an item that can only be purchased by someone who is considered a manufacturer or C - it is a LE item only. Neither B or C is in the description of the auction.

Some think that this, "NFA rules do apply", covers it all as you should know what you are buying.

The pile of parts is not the actually regulated. Having a SCAR 17S and...

...well...

That could land you in a heap O' hot water with the gold badges from the BATFE.

Parts are just that, parts. By themselves. Now, if somebody who is not properly licensed wants to be a knucklehead, then they will...

...and if they're caught doing stupid things, they will WIN! stupid prizes... guaranteed.

Yeah you can buy full auto parts....heck I see P90 "de-milled" kits on Gunbroker all the time. But unless you have a FFL and SOT paid your gonna get in big trouble. Also the parts are not for personal use. i.e. Get license's and buy full-autos for your enjoyment. Big no no. I know what you're thinking. If the machine gun was made before 1986 it can be owned by me but if it was manufactured after 1986 I can't own it. Makes no sense to me either. All it does is make everyone except the extremely wealthy not able to own full-auto guns. It could be said that it's discrimination against everyone but the wealthy.

An individual cannot buy this:

SCAR 17s SELECT FIRE Lower Receiver, Complete : Class 3 Parts & Accessories at GunBroker.com

This item is classified as a machginegun and possession of such an item is restricted and heavily regulated.

Exclusions are 07/02 SOT holders and certain governmental agencies.

It is the registered part (a machinegun) and is put on the NFA registry via a form 2 by the manufacturer. Transfer to another SOT without a "demo letter" constitutes a violation of the NFA.

So the seller is commiting a crime by having it for sale on there?
