I read an article in FOX on-line today in which the author claimed that some AirSoft products could have the AirSoft reciever mated with an AR upper and actually fire live ammuntion. Allegedly this permits people who can not legally own a firearm the ability to build one by simply buying an upper assembly and mating it with an AirSoft reciever. Anyone else read this piece? Could this actually be true?

Here is a link to a good vid clip and story about it.

Just a few of issues a gunsmith found after analyzing both.

◦The WE TTI M4’s lack any sort of functional gas tube which is integral to an AR15’s operation
◦The upper receiver of an AR15 fits onto the lower of the WE TTI M4
◦The stock trigger pack in the WE TTI cannot strike the firing pin of a AR15 bolt
◦The body of the WE TTI lower is several mils thinner than an AR15 lower, and shims would be needed for any AR trigger pack to work
◦The trigger pack of an AR15 appears to be able to fit onto the lower receiver of a WE TTI M4, one of the AR15 trigger pack retaining pins is impossible to insert without major modification, and the hammer isn’t operable with the WE TTI lower.
