You don’t buy a sawed off shotgun. You make it.

No sir! According to the FBI, Randy Weaver WANTED to buy a sawed off shotgun from them. The seller (representing the ATF or FBI - can't remember) pleaded with him on the grounds of needing the money so Randy bought it. The rest is history...just as is being made in MI now.

Exactly right! Unless you are a Fed agent and want to have some bogus charge on a guy trying to sell a shotgun. That is what happened to Weaver. He cut off the barrel where the "buyer" said to.

The point is that these guys probably weren't trying to sell pipe bombs. My guess is that this is another case of entrapment.
