Back before 1986 when it was still legal to do so, and I had a Manufacturers SOT FFL, I have built them, not legal to do so now.
To do so today you would have to have the manufacturers license, AND the demilled gun would have to have been registered as demilled prior to 1986, then by filling out the tax stamp form and getting approval, you could then reactivate it.
That's it as I recall, laws may have changed since I retired in 2005, but I kind of doubt it.
And not really worth the effort, takes a good bit of TIG welding skill and machinists skill, plus a bit of luck, to get them to run right after remanufacturing them.

Thank you that’s what I figured!

Thank god the government is here to tell us what is and isn’t safe. I am so glad I can’t even try....
