Provided the proper licenses were obtained, how difficult would it be to make my .40 S&W Beretta fully auto? I see the 92 (9mm) in full auto all over the place. Is it possible? oh yea, and where can i find a drum mag for a 96?

Thanx alot for your help!!!

Some on this forum know the NFA better than I do, so members, please correct me if I"m wrong. I believe that an owner is not allowed to convert any semi-automatic firearm to full automatic. I'm certain that ATF is actively seeking out people who use anything from add-on trigger assists to internal modifications and giving them a heapin' helpin' of US Government hospitality.

Worse yet, even for those who are NOT trying to convert firearms to full auto, this is what they give you if an accident occurs.

Don't do it. Stop researching it. Stop talking about it. Stop thinking about it. Forget it.

Well, unless you want Bubba as a roommate/lover for the next tewnty, or so, years...

If you want to get into machine guns get a class III license and do it the correct way. To convert a handgun to full auto is dangerous and illegial. Whats the purpose?

Over 30 years ago when trying to clean up the trigger on my Browing High Power I filed the sear down too far and my first outing at the range it unloaded all 13 rounds so quick I did not have time to blink! Scared the crap out of me and was not especially good for the gun. Had to incur a gunsmith repair to fix the problem.

The gun becomes worthless, in my opinion if it is a full auto version. Safe queen except for a trip to the woods now and then. No good for target work or self defense. Very expensive to operate and the class III license is expensive.

Sorry - U cannot do it. Any legally owned machine gun has to have a receiver from 1986 or prior. And, to manufacturer your own machine gun is also a no no.

Those Beretta 93s are very rare and worth a small fortune.

Stupid NFA laws... I'd get a real P90 if it wasn't for all of this (but P90s weren't around in 1986).

This is why fully auto MP5s sell for $17,000-$20,000 (1986 and older versions).
