Re-building a FA kit into something legal is attractive, but if you do not have a properly equipped shop and it would be time consuming. Still need to be a SBR to be useful so it requires NFA paper work.
I had speculated about keeping a FA kit on hand for SHTF scenario of without rule of law so one could be put together to fight attacking hordes or what ever. I decided i would use what I normally practice with which is semi-auto.
I know today we use the term submachine gun loosely, but there is no real substitute for the real thing. A controllable FA is desirable, but uses a lot of ammo and fires a lot of rounds. Makes speed reloading important and it is not just ammo expenditure, but malfunction. I have a better chance of no malfunctions from 20 rounds fired in semi-auto versus a hundred fired in full-auto or at least this is how I see it. But for dealing with a mix of cover and concealment a full-auto does have its advantages for sure.
Until reopening of the machine gun registry I pass on a full auto kit.
Good luck and enjoy your rebuild.

Its not about how fast you can load, but about how well you can shoot ..... Someone being saved by a speed load is not something that has happened with any regularity. Gabe Suarez
