E-Mail Evidence

From David Olofson, we have the e-mail that ATF claims proves he purchased M16 parts.  I see a lot of talk about M16 magazines, which are identical to AR-15 magazines, and talk about a bolt, which are also identical, AFAIK.  But I only see one mention of M16 parts, and I would agree that in the realm of “proof” this isn’t it.

    The bolt carrier is different. The actual bolt is the part that fits inside the carrier, which as far as I know is the same for the M16 and AR-15. Though, a lot of people confuse the bolt with the bolt carrier.

    Hmmm. Don’t really see anything there about M16 fire control parts. Bolts and bolt carriers are specificly legal.
