At a recent gun show, I saw a CZ61 Skorpion which had the receiver cut. The weapon appeared to be complete, otherwise. It occurred to me that it might be possible to locate a Class II manufacturer who could repair the cuts and then get this gun rolling again. BUT, the question is whether this could be legally transferred for other than dealer/LEO ownership. Is this possible? Does this constitute "new manufacture" which would disqualify it? I have the sinking feeling that it does. Anyone have any info on this?

Thanks....

Yes that would be making a "new" machine gun and no it is not legal, except if a class II gets a letter from a law enforcement/gov agancy that they want a demo of that weapon. Then it can be made, but is not for sale to the general population.

Hope this helps
