If you can run any types of industrial machines like surface grinders, lathes or milling machines with any degree of accuracy I would say first apply for your 07 license this is a manufacturer of firearms, depending on the state you may have to prove you actually can machine parts and build guns! After you get this license (which took me about 6 months and tons of paper work) you request the application for the "Special Occupancy Tax" this is your SOT hence after paying your annual 500.00 you are a class II manufacturer! In my opinion this is the MOST powerful license you can get next to DD the 07 SOT entitles you to all the privileges that a standard dealer has any rights to buy post samples but the beauty is that you can make your own weapons do your own conversions, build your own silencers! You see each time you "buy" a post sample machine gun it is truly supposed to be to demonstrate your gun to a department for future sales. With a class II you can build them and see which that you prefer, then demonstrate which ever you like! And each time you build a specific weapon you do not need a letter to do it you simply register it as soon as you are finished, There are a few other little things like not having any more than 2 of any variant as a post sample (only 2 stens one mark II one mark III) Little things like this are pains but how many do you need? If you want more than one buy pre samples or transferables! If you need any help drop me a line firstname.lastname@example.org it was well worth it.
