Fox news & ATF raise airsoft conversion concerns

[sarcasm]The sky is falling[/sarcasm]

"A FoxNews.com investigation reveals that a popular recreational pellet gun can be converted easily to a real semi-automatic weapon. And while the federal Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is already aware of the issue, these “toys” -- new, top-of-the-line airsoft rifles -- continue to be sold throughout the country."

It's just the American sky we'll be fine; who knows maybe we'll even come out ahead.

This is only an issue for GBBR. It is not a major issue for AEGs. Im sure the companies will find a way to get around this problem.

thing is...yes you could convert one over....BUT the cost would be crazy and not sure it would stand up to real ammunition being fired from it.

Lets be real, if you are in the US and want a gun that bad you will get one somehow rather then convert a toy over lol

Actually


it's an easy conversion .. but the only thing left of the airsoft gun is a stripped lower and stock... everything else is real steel

The issue is that all the parts for the conversion are freely available to anyone with no license needed ...

the airsoft parts are used to replace the serial numbered lower receiver..

so...it still boils down to people having to buy 2/3 of a gun to make one that might last a few rounds.....
With that logic...anyone can build a gun from parts.....

Now here's a funny question:

Are the after market lower receivers (7075 forged aluminium) for WETTI guns banned from importation in the US? If not, this is fucking ridiculous.
