    Wandering through another set of classifieds, I stumbled across an ad for 'JNCManufacturing' in Washington state. I've provided a link to their website, but thanks to the way it's designed, there's no direct link to the page I want. All-flash page designers should be beaten.

    Anyway, if you enter the site and click on 'Class 2', there's an ad for 'Drop-in Glock Auto-sears", both 'F/A Only' and 'Select Fire'. They then go on "!!Not a restricted item!!". Below that, though, is a set of important caveats -

    "All batfe rules apply,
    It is not illegal to own these parts ,
    If you own these parts and a Glock it can be considered
    constructive possesion,EVEN If they are not installed
    You must fill out a form 2 BEFORE installation of these parts"

    This all leaves me wondering - are these guys a scam, a sting, or have I misread the gun laws? First off - in order to use this, you'd need an MG registered glock. The registry isn't open for new guns... And the page really doesn't feel targeted at dealers or SOTCs. Opinions?

    No scam. Everything they said is correct.

    It is you that is adding superfluous information.

    They never said anything about registering NEW guns, you did.

    hmm....they're not too far from the house. from what i see/read, they're
    quite accurate in regards to the limitation of their product, what it can/not do,
    and legal.

    There isn't even an order form, or am I blind? If the ordering process is just done through e-mails, I'd stay away.
