Sup, I'm going to be repairing this lower which had a third hole drilled for an illegal sear conversion. I need it to be able to survive an ATF inspection. It's a classic Colt lower, so trashing it is out of the question. I've watched many videos showing how to repair the hole, and I think I've got a workable solution.

Since it's aluminum receiver what about aluminum welding to fill the hole then mill/grind the area flush? The re-apply the finish?

Have you tried pointing out that they're not legally permitted to infringe on your right to own weapons of any sort?

Nah, those guys don't listen to that argument.
Friend got his mustard gas artillery shells confiscated.
How's he supposed to get rid of those prairie dogs now?

I might be missing something, but isn't "Once a machine gun, always a machine gun" a thing?

Yes. Hence:
>I need it to be able to survive an ATF inspection.

Personally I don't see why a Colt lower is so special it's worth the risk, but whatever.

Honestly, I'd measure the hole with gage pins to get a good idea of exactly how big it is, then turn an aluminum pin 0.001" bigger than the hole, press fit it in, file/sand it flush, and alumablack it (brownells).

It shouldn't be visible if you sand it down carefully.

>"Once a machine gun, always a machine gun"
But in this case, the lower wasn't created as a MG from Colt.

What, someone installed the fun switch setting?

Is there a hole at the top (semi-auto) setting?
Is there a Full or Burst setting?

Was wondering if something was hidden behind the bang-switch in the OP's picture (the third position).
>> No. 109032 ID: f2172d
Yes, there is. It was illegally drilled there by someone else prior to him obtaining it. OP obscured it because he doesn't want his doggos shot. He is now asking how to fill in the no-no hole and make it like it was never there.

Tig, and paitence.

Meplat, I'm doing a deal for a transferable AM-180. Super clean, guy has owned it since the mid 80s just prior to the ban. Comes with 9" and 16" barrels. One metal mag, two plastics. I've handled the gun briefly. Any suggestions or recommendations regarding maintenance or sourcing spare parts if needed?
>> No. 109168 ID: 51b0a9
Not really, been out of the business too long.
I'd suggest walking it through a SAR West show, and asking the folks at Lone Mountain, or looking for "Kenton Tucker", he helps run the Big Sandy and might know a solid source.
