Right now, because those numbers are stamped into the weapon, the Feds can determine those numbers because of changes in the steel at a molecular level BECAUSE of the compression of the steel as a result of stamping. Welding also changes the steel’s molecular structure, making it impossible to determine the serial number of the weapon, hence the ability to trace itr from mfr to end user…
I don’t have such a stash, but I do weld. Sounds like a great idea.
By the way, have you seen the MultiPlaz? Check http://www.multiplaz.com. It uses no shielding gases, just water & alcohol plus electricity. It is one great Russian invention.
