    So... I would really like to try my hand at building some demil kit guns but Wahington has this crazy "no part from a machine gun" law that keeps distributors from sending kits to Washington.

    Is there a legal work around for this or am I just stuck till I move to a free state ?

    What about all the kits that were in the state prior to the law?

    Well... The law was passed in the mid 90's I think so it's a possibility?

    I remember a fellow in Vancouver that had a ton of FAL parts and complete kits minus the rcvr. Man I bought probably 20 of his FAL kits, G1, STG58, and several L1A1 kits. I bet there are a few of those floating around that have not been built yet.....

    I am open to try and build just about anything that I can find info about. I am not proficient enough to build stuff without some help though so if its so obsucre as to not have mountains of Youtube help its probably a no go.

    AK and UZI's seem to be the next logical step. I just want to make sure I am following the letter of the law.

    Thread over at weaponsguild has a rep from Apex parts that will ship to you

    "We can take care of a customer from Washington State with an AK kit.
    You are welcome to call my SALES office if you have any questions."

    post is a year old though
    http://www.weaponsguild.com/forum/index.php?topic=50838.msg696727#msg696727

    even though the law has this: "any part designed and intended solely and exclusively for use in a machine gun" distributors think it is vague enough not to ship. The law is vague though.
