    mg42 approval letter/922r

    ok, i keep reading in the past the mg42/m53 was ruled a firearm, ie no 922r required. All the links to these letter have expired so i have to assume without proof this is not the case.

    I am not really worried about it being that my hammer trigger sear and receiver would be US made. No mags etc so i cant see how even if it is still 922r required that i would be at or over the 10 parts.

    Does anyone have some kind of approval letter? Ive searched all the forums out there, google etc but no luck.

    It was ruled a rifle last Kevin. I don't have the letter, but I remember it.

    Even so, you won't come close to busting out 922r.

    I figured the following when I built mine, but its my opinion only:

    Receiver
    Barrel
    Barrel Extension
    Muzzle Attachment
    Bolt
    Bolt Carrier
    Buttstock
    Charging Handle/Operating Rod - Like a FAL and G3/Cetme
    Grip Frame/Lower Receiver/trigger housing - Like a G3/Cetme
    Pistol grip panels - Like a G3/Cetme
    trigger
    hammer
    disconnector


    For US parts I have:

    Receiver
    Trigger
    Hammer
    Disconnector
    Grip Frame/Lower Receiver
    Pistol Grip

    I don't think belts count, because its not a magazine (no body, follower or floorplate).
    In those moments where you're not quite sure if the undead are really dead, dead, don't get all stingy with your bullets.

    built mine using the same approach as tanker did...

    but i also use a US rear butt stock from Dan @ angola arms..... so my parts count is:

    reciever
    hammer
    trigger
    discon
    rear stock
    pistol grip (panels)
    grip frame/lower
    Op rod (made my rod fit the factory handle and welded it together)

    that gets you under the number real easy and there were some US made booster/flash deals there for a while.

    the approval letter that most of us use is the BRP letter although WLA also has one... but i cant post it without their approval and they have denied that in the past.
