It's not possible now, nor was it before now, so the incoming administration has no effect on this.

If you cut off the auto lug you have an M14/M1A. Which shows the agenda of denying the public more rifles. The "once rule" really shows the stupidity of the ruling. That lug and another small cut on the receiver as we all know is the only thing that seperates the M1A from the M14, with exception of course of the dangerous receiver markings.

The CMP sold M14 parts kits way back when made up from decommissioned M14s, but that is no longer possible. The current practice/policy(law?) is to destroy every functional part of any automatic rifle, so nothing is left but scrap.

Your source for the comment?
What policy or law are you referring to?

There was/is a youtube video of the destruction process (captain Crunch), and in it was explained that they were required to make sure each part was destroyed. Even showed them combing through the destroyed weapons looking for parts that still needed destruction and then taking a blowtorch to them. I can't find the video, but here is a link to the article tied to it:

Oh ..... the article you linked was from 2016 and the imbedded video from 2007...........

But the problem with assuming what they are or aren't destroying now is that:

-there were Govt orders to stop the destruction of M1, M1911's etc.
-The M14 began to be retrofitted and used again by the Military beginning in the early 2000's and were used up until the 2014 timeframe........

So whatever weapons they are destroying now are not those.......
ie the parts shown in the picture look like M16A1 parts.........

Not mention, as the photo shows, the parts/rifles, whatever, maynot be serviceable anyways.
Anniston is a HUGE arsenal rebuilding/retrofitting ALL sorts of weapon/systems.....
So they maybe destroying unserviceable parts........

Is it a dream? Look deep into my eyes, you're getting sleepy, sleepy, sleepy.

True a little dated, but my response was limited to Automatic weapons. 1911s are not in question. While I can't sight you a source, because I don't care enough to go to the trouble, I am pretty sure the government stance on surplus automatic weapons has not changed.

Oh, I thought this thread was about M14's......
Nevermind then.
