A few observations about this.

First, even though it shouldn't be, making a drop-in auto-sear (DIAS) outside of some very narrow circumstances is illegal under Federal law.

Second, possessing a DIAS is illegal under Florida law if you don't possess it legally under Federal law.

Third, a DIAS is not complicated to make.  But to make it work you need other select-fire parts.

Fourth, the media consistently cites the wrong law to show that it's illegal.  A drop-in auto-sear is a machinegun in and of itself independent of its installation in a firearm.

790.221 is machineguns.
790.222 is bumpstock or conversion kit, a tool, an accessory, or a device used to alter the rate of fire of a firearm to mimic automatic weapon fire or which is used to increase the rate of fire to a faster rate than is possible for a person to fire such semiautomatic firearm unassisted by a kit, a tool, an accessory, or a device.

Machineguns are defined in 790.001(9) with identical language to the Federal statutes.

Fifth, because this is so damn simple this guy should have seen what was coming to him.  I seriously doubt he's attempting to overturn the laws by taking a 2nd amendment case all the way to the Supreme Court.
