How would he transfer it? PPT to himself? Please cite some relevant laws and/or letters that support this determination of yours - if true, it could prove to become another money pit for me.
I no longer can find any vendors of semi-finished M1911 frames. Neither can I find any state law that prohibits a nonlicensee from making a gun for his personal use, provided it is not for sale and the maker is not prohibited from possessing firearms. Note that under federal and state law, a person is prohibited from making a semiautomatic assault weapon or assembling a nonsporting semiautomatic rifle or nonsporting shotgun from imported parts.
