Possible, yes. Legal, no, period, end of discussion (unless you are a licensed full auto manufacturer with the priviledge of building guns for the government). How? Not here, ever.

This is assuming that you live in the United States or Canada. If you live in another country that allows full auto for civilians, good luck finding the info, cause it's not here.

All that notwithstanding, some people will tell you that you can make a gun full auto by filing something inside. Don't believe them! While it may lead to repeated fire, it may be uncontrollable (ie doesn't let up when the trigger is let up) and can set off a round out of battery, which is extremely unsafe. This is NOT how full autos work. Full autos are specially designed to fire only when the round is in the chamber. What such a job would do is induce a dangerous malfunction.

In short, DON'T do it, EVER.

By Federal Law, no new full auto weapons can be manufactured for civilian sale after May of 1986. A Class II manufacturer can build them, but can sell only to Military, Law Enforcement and the Government Agencies who use such weapons.
The rigamaroll to get the Class II license isn't worth the trouble and expense unless you are going to do it as a company.

Get an AK and learn to bump fire! :full:

Lost, with just a little interest and a little experience it would be possible for you to learn and understand the fireing cycle of a marlin .22 rifle.
with that knowledge it would be possible for you to alter your marlin to fire in a different mannor than it was originally manufactured to do.
Your question leads me to believe you have a very limited knowledge of firearms
or you are baiting us to tell you how to do something that is incredibly illegal.
If you succeed in altering your marlin severe federal penalties await.
These forums are shurely monitored and many of our members are Law Enforcement people.

So, Lost, getting your marlin to fire in a fully automatic mannor is inappropriate, to say the least.

BTW My pet kitty cat can figure out how to make ANY semi auto fire full auto.

Engineerring and manufacturing the parts, That is another story.

Lost, I suggest you work on other things than this.
and avoid any open paper bags, you might not be able to fight your way out of one.

Dennis, I lived out in the boonies where if I didn't tell someone I had a full auto no one would know. So having a marlin 22 and a junk marlin and being a lot younger and stupider than I am now I decided to try it. The closest I could get worked in theory but in truth the firing pin followed the bolt back down and didn't have enough forct to set off the second round. So I took the parts that I had butchered out and replaced them from the junk gun and put it back legal. It won't work. Give it up. Don't ruin a good gun trying.

Whoa!!!

Lost said:
Can anyone tell me if its possible, legal and how to make my .22 semi auto marlin into a fully automatic?
Okay no one said it, danced around it a bit, but no one said it, so I will...........

A TROLL?!?!?!?!? :jaw:

LOL!!! :)

Seriously, while I have to wonder why is it always the first 3 posts of some people where some such question is asked.......

If you are on the level and not some anti gun whackjob trying to elicit an illegal response...ie:Sarah Brady's clan of very tightly wound storm troopers....

If you are on the level and not some Federale asking a question to lure a gun nut into a BATFE trap (which by the way even they are smarter than this 1st post) :rolleyes:

If you are on the level and not some local Barney Fife trying to run a sting..(No disrespect to all our LEO breteren..)

If you are on the level. then here is your answer---
The answer to your question is yes, you can. And, yes it is WAAAAY illegal, and No you will get no info here on how to do it. And I don't know how, nor do I care how to do it. My gun use mantra is one shot, one kill not spray and pray.......

Learn how to use that .22 and stop a target with one, well placed shot.

Shootin Machine guns looks like an awful lot of fumn, and there are legal places to do so. But shootin full autos is also expensive with all that lead flyin downrange, your wallet will empty on an equal rate...even with a .22....

If you are on the level, welcome to the site, sit down and stay a spell, and let's chat!
:ballons:

If you are not on the level here is your answer--
Nice Try Idiot!

Then again couldn't you make a legal(???) Gatling Gun out of some Marlin actions? I know I have seen several made out of Ruger10/22 actions.

You can rig up a crank to fire each shot faster. They are made for $30ish and called the gat trigger. Such is legal. Internal mods are not.

I am going to recommend this thread be closed.

Perhaps you could ask us how to brew crystal meth in a kitchen sink next?
Just because G&G members own and/or enjoy firearms does NOT make us criminals!
I have closed your thread and recommended that you be banninated!
