are mk-31 pen flares considered legal to own?
I seem to be running accross two trains of thought, one group says that they are legal sence you cant fire lethal ammo from it unless you have a modified chamber to screw in to the end. As long as you dont have the chamber (anyway to load a live round) it is legal.
The other group says they are illegal pen guns no matter what.
Even heard that there is a class III dealer that will engrave it and turn it in to a AOW and supply a .25 apc chamber for $100.
I bought one the otherday to mount on my m4. I cant find flares for it so its just a conversation peice. A neat little gadget that nobody has. I would love to get some flares for it but they are non existant atleast from what I can find. Since I mainly want it for looks would grinding off the firing pin make it legal?
