Anybody know how Blackwater (for example) owns NFA weapons for deployment to Iraq? Are they delivered/stored out of the US? Are corporations like this allowed to but post '86 weapons, and if so, could a corporation in the US purchase post '86 weapons?

It's my understanding that they either convert "in country" or acquire weapons from the Dept. of State, who oversees their contracts.

I see. What about US companies like Fed Ex-still required to buy pre '86?

Does US law have any meaning outside the US?

In my second post I was referring to large corporations inside the US. Sorry for not being more clear.

Yes, unless the corporation has an FFL and an SOT that allows them to deal/manufacture/import machine guns. The reason a lot of people start up a corporation or LLC to own their machine guns is not because the corp can suddenly possess new machine guns, but because a corp isn't required to get a Chief Law Enforcement Officer signoff on the BATFE transfer form.
