It's still quite unclear to me that this is the case, but I understand your position.

I'm confused on the pistol build. If you were to convert to fixed mag that is enough to be non-AW status? This is only for pistols built between 2001 to December 31 2016 correct?
Yes, fixed magazine or not semi-auto are the only choices for AR/AK pistols to not be AWs.

If I built an AR pistol today it would have to be a manual action single shot correct?.
It would have to comply with SSE2 requirements... dimensionally compliant and originally assembled as a single shot bolt action or break top action. At this point it is unclear whether then converting to semi-auto is "continuing the manufacturing" process thus making it a violation of the "safe handgun roster".
The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers that it can bribe the public with the public's money.
