If you are in another country Ongobongoland, let's say. You happen across a select fire AK 47. You remove the fire control group, and send it back in the mail. I am pretty sure this is legal.

You have a friend who is also interested in AKs and he is interested in the FLAT piece of stamped out metal with that infamous third hole in it.

Question. Is that flat piece of metal considered a full auto weapon by ATF?

I do understand the warning about constructive intent. That is why we are talking about two separate parties, here.

Any legal eagles who know whether this is legal/illegal?

First off, I'm pretty sure you'd be breaking importation laws as they are pretty strict about only allowing the new import of sporting rifles, like a Saiga, but not 'assault rifles' like an AK. Otherwise Century probably wouldn't have such a hand in AKs.

To your first question... once a full auto, always a full auto according to the ATF... the only way to make that AK legal for sale would be to cut the receiver, strip out the barrel and then import it as a parts kit.

As for your second question, I asked a SOT the other day... I was told that as soon as you bend that sucker into shape, you have made a MG and the ATF would want to talk to you...
