    They are trying way too hard to convince you to pay them shipping and handling for that info. I bet you can find all that info online already for free

    There are only two options as I see it.
    Either I'm right, or there is a sinister
    conspiracy to conceal the fact that I'm right.

    No shortage of opinions here.

    I'll agree with stupimlico above. Information on building "ghost guns" is freely available on the Internet. They may package it together so you don't have to search (but of course, it may not be straightforward).

    However, it is illegal to build a machine gun, even if it is a "ghost gun". An AK-47 is an automatic weapon. Sure, you'll find people who say they have an AK-47 and, no doubt, whomever sold it said it was an AK-47, but a true AK-47 is a machine gun. They bank on that confusion, when they're just selling you shipping on instructions to build a semi-automatic gun that looks like an AK-47.

    By name, the AK is an “automatic” but it don’t mean it’s a machine gun. I have an AK-47 but it is a semi-automatic action “automatic loader”. The action/fire control unit cannot be converted to automatic. When they first opened to the civilian market, they just adjusted the sear/etc to semiautomatic but it could be easily reconverted back to semiautomatic. That’s no longer the case.

    And, it is NOT illegal to build your own automatic weapon. Not sure why I keep seeing these “you can’t XYZ yourself . . .” It is not illegal to build a firearm. It is not illegal to build an automatic firearm AS LONG AS YOU BUILD IT FROM SCRATCH AND NOT FROM KITS OR GUN PARTS. You are not allowed to build a firearm and sell it or with the intent to sell. It has to be for personal use.

    There is a great book out there called “Unintended Consequences” by John Ross. It can be hard to find and you really tough to find. It is written as a book of fiction (characters, etc) but is historically and factually accurate with the evolution of gun industry and laws over the past hundred years or so. It takes you on a first person journey into the court system, congressional commissioned studies on firearms laws etc. it is 860 pages and took me a few months to fully read. It cost ~ $150 brand spanking new but I paid ~ $85 for “good condition”. It is in and out of print and due to the nature of the topic is not very popular in the common press and “brick and mortar” bookstores. You will never be sorry you read it and you will find out some hoods have been pulled over our heads that we never knew or THOUGHT we cared about.

    "To own firearms is to affirm that freedom is not a gift from government...As the Founding Fathers knew well, a government that does not trust its honest, law-abiding, taxpaying citizens with the means of self-defense is not itself worthy of trust."

    The possession of arms by the people is the ultimate warrant that government governs only with the consent of the governed.

    I have read that building an AK is difficult. Bending the sheet steel and using the rivets to put it together...read it is tough to do right.

    Or, skip the shipping and handling and just follow the instructions:

    One of my goals in life is to shoot more people on purpose than I do by accident. So far, so good.
