    Air soft guns CAN be converted, to disposable razors, Tupperware & milk jugs. I just wish ATF agents could be converted to something (ANYTHING)...useful.

    I sure hope they make the FOIA request and publicize it on the interwebs. Until then and maybe even after then, I'm not buying those could be converted into a full auto real weapon.

    Well technically I suppose with enough money, spare parts, time and work you can convert a plastic tricycle into a Harley Davidson Ultra or an F150 into a Peterbuilt if you count using the Big Wheel stickers off the tricycle on the new Harley you just built from scratch or the F150 emblem on the semis bumper.

    Maybe he figures you can glue the sights from the air soft onto the AR you built and thinking like a Fed that is converting it

    Oh man…I actually watched the video. The best part was at the end.

    The ATF did testing and determined that you CAN convert them. The Martins said "Prove it". ATF says "You'll have to file a request".

    I bet they "lose" the documentation between now and receiving that request.

    Actually, with just a little background in machine work and the proper tools to do it, they can be converted to shoot regular ammo. Its not far fetched at all, its been done.


    With that being said...

    Confiscating them because they might be converted is a stretch. The Supreme Court has thumped the ATF several times over the years for doing just that and it seems like they never learn.
    I see that the same as saying that since I have some 3/4" diameter pipe in my shop and a lathe that I could make a 12 gauge Zip Gun so they confiscate my pipe and my lathe, in spite of the fact that I am laying some water lines in my yard.

    Or, I have a .50 BMG that could shoot down planes so he's taking it.

    Its about as stupid as saying that because I have a tool that makes me a male, I might become a rapist.




    There either has to be more to the story, or this guy is going to lose his case.

    We are still innocent until proven guilty in this country and the burden of proof is on them. Since they haven't been converted, then there is no case. Even the whack jobs wearing the black robes are smart enough to figure that out.
