    All I know is it's got something to do with full auto arms. What is it?

    The link will explain it, but I think it's more or less that John Stemple made a line of small machine guns and had a bunch of registered tubes pre 86, making them transferable and there is a market of 'gun kits' that take the tube and let it become a clone of another gun. At least that's the way I understand it.

    If you google "John Stemple", "Stemple receiver tube", "Stemple machine gun tube" you can learn much more.

    Cool, thanks for the info. I had tried googling "stemple tube" and came up with hundreds of web pages, but none explaining exactly what it was.

    Now I understand.
