99. If they're sufficient to convert a gun to full auto (i.e., a DIAS), YES, it's a felony.
If they are just a collection of parts that are NOT capable of converting a civilian gun to full auto, then no, they're just useless parts.

I suspect the FOAF mentioned upthread was sold a collection of AK parts NOT capable of converting a post-1986 civilian AK to full auto (i.e., magic beans). If they were sufficient to do a conversion, then possession other than on a Form 4 would be as illegal as an unregistered DIAS for a pre-'86 AR-15, i.e. 10 years in Club Fed.
