Class 2 with SOT. Can I build machine guns?

From what I read "NO". Is there any way to legally?

Were are these $800 Glock 18's that were used as demo guns?

I am not sure what you mean. To have a Class 2 SOT (NFA manufacturer) you first have to have a Type 7 or 10 (manufacturers) FFL. If you have the proper FFL and SOT, you can manufacture NFA "firearms", including machineguns. But you cannot transfer a new machinegun to an individual, only to a Class 3 dealer or a government entity (police, federal agency, military).

IIRC, if you have the 7-10 FFL and the Class 2 SOT, you are also allowed to deal in regular firearms and NFA firearms (except machineguns) with the public, so you can also manufacture, and transfer to individuals, short barrel rifles and shotguns, suppressors, etc., as well as other non-NFA items you may make under your manufacturer's FFL. In effect, a Type 01 FFL is included in the 7-10 FFL and a Class 3 SOT is included in the Class 1 and 2.

Type 7 FFL is license to manuf. firearms, add the SOT to that and you can manuf. NFA except for Destructive Devices, add more on top of that to manuf. and deal in Destructive Devices.

If you are going into this business you should read this manual.
