How Is a DIAS Listed on an ATF Form 2?

The Drop in Auto Sear (DIAS) - also known as an auto sear, Auto Sear II, or AR15 Auto Sear - is a combination of parts designed to make a weapon shoot automatically without manual reloading more than one shot. The ATF considers all DIAS manufactured on or after November 1, 1981, to be machine guns.

Therefore, if you have imported or manufactured a DIAS, register it through submitting ATF Form 2 just as you would register a machine gun.
