I have a chance to pickup a reciever for a Sten. We know that the actual kits are available just about everywhere. SInce the law of 1996(?) concerning the new manufacturing of civilian subguns, I was wondering:
1) Since the parts are actually breakdowns from existing firearms, would the '96 law apply?
2) I hold a C&R could reassembled Sten still meet the relic criteria?
3) has anyone ever tried to apply to the ATF for a permit to manufacture one of these or anything else that would fall into this catagory.
4) If yes, we you successful or did you get the run-around?
