M2 to M1 Carbine Conversion Makes it Legal?
Can anyone comment on the legality of converting an M2 carbine to M1 by removing the selective fire components and replacing them with M1 parts? Does this make the rifle legal or would it still be considering a machine-gun?
I have come across an M2 carbine, probably assembled from parts. If I convert it back to M1, am I legit? It's a Winchester, 1,2xx,xxx serial number with M2 slide from what I can tell by the number.
Suggestions or comments welcome! Thanks. I'd like to keep it as a shooter but don't want to break any laws or hassle with the BATF.
