if you end up tangling with a overzealous prosecutor you could end up in a very very very bad place over a few bucks of parts you probably should have just waited to order.
What about this idea? I would argue (if I had to), concerning Constructive Intent, that since I have filed the paperwork with the BATFE, and the local police chief, with photos, fingerprints, trust info, address etc..., that I was intending to follow the laws as written. People who just make a maglight can under the constitution or natural laws dont do that.
you'd have to discuss that legal strategy with your lawyer. i'm just telling you how i understand the BATFE Looks at it.
i dont have the deep pockets needed to fight that kind of fight, so i just avoid it like the plague
