there was a 2 parts article in the shot gun news the last few months. it has lost of info on a semi build. also you can go to semiautosten.com and buy a semi conversion kit. act fast onthe conversion kit cause rumor has it they are selling out thier inventory and not making more. i do know a guy that is trying to buy out the semiautosten people but nothing so far.
It is legal to make one..... but ya have to modify the hell out of the internals, making it unreliable and PERHAPS unsafe.
Also you need to permanently LENGTHEN the barrel to be legal.
Ya wind up with an ugly, clumsy, unreliable and posibly dangerouse weapon.
Not worth the effort in my opinion.
Look into the yugo m56, still not great but BETTER
