  1. Non-dealer to Dealer question

    Thank you!
  2. Non-dealer to Dealer question

    When an FFL/SOT takes an NFA item in transfer from a non-dealer, the transfer occurs on a Form 4. Does that dealer need to submit fingerprints, photos, etc if taking it under his/her FFL? And if the FFL/SOT in question is a corporation, do background checks needed to be submitted for all the people in the corporation?
  3. Is there a change in USPS policy on shipping NFA?

    Hi Jim! I just sent an MG to Bob Naess via USPS Priority Mail and had no issues. Now, I sent as a dealer to another dealer and with a PS 1508 form, but I had no issues. They didn't ask any questions or scrutinize anything, they just took my paperwork and off it went, so I don't even think they knew it was C3. If I recall, you have a C&R FFL. Were you using that? I would think that would cover you, at least if it was a C&R sub. In general, Buddy is right. Without a license, you can ship long guns as long as it is going to a dealer, but they will not ship handguns in the mail unless it is dealer to dealer.(18 U.S.C. 1715, 922(a)(5) and 922 (a)(2)(A); 27 CFR 478.31) NFA can get a little tricky. SBS and SBRs CANNOT ship via USPS by individuals because the PS considers them to be pistols. The problem with sub guns, since many have barrels that are less than 16'' or have an overall length less than 26'' is that the PS can and will sometimes classify those as pistols as well. In other words, the PS has their own definitions for firearms that differ from what we encounter elsewhere. I have not heard about any rule changes, and it sounds like the ATF's advice was unhelpful. Sometimes, you just have to politely educate the postal folks. Their default when they don't know is to say no, it seems. Don't take no for an answer. Other than that, USPS has long been a preferred way to ship NFA. FedEx will ship NFA. UPS will NOT ship. I guess the other thing you COULD do, although it is unnecessary, is get an ATF Form 5 submitted, signed and returned for your repair. That might help if this is consistently a problem. Kind of hard for them to shoot you down if the ATF has signed off on the move for repair purposes. -David
  4. I am looking for a muzzle booster for an MG 08/15. I would be interested in either a reproduction piece or original. If anyone has one and is willing to part with it, please let me know. Thanks so much! v/r David
  5. Potential Scam Accounts

    I've never had one threaten to kill me before. That's a good point though, especially for those of us who run home based businesses. Be careful who you send your FFL/SOT out to.
  6. First time MG recommendations

    You can never have just one! haha. You gotta cover all your bases. You have yourself a 5.56mm select fire rifle (if the ATF ever gets it approved; I'm still waiting on a form 4 approval for something submitted in Aug 2016), so maybe a decent submachine gun and then a belt-fed. That would round you out quite nicely. Have fun! -David
  7. Potential Scam Accounts

    Total scammer: Udo.dante25@yahoo.com This clown contacts me out of the blue about having a 81mm mortar for sale that he says he'll give me a great deal on. He must have seen me respond to a legitimate ad placed for a mortar a few months back. Anyway, he tells me he'll give me this great deal, so I ask for pictures. He sends pictures (the exact same pictures) of one listed for sale on Ebay. I ask to see pictures of certain parts...he doesn't have those. I ask them to take them, he has an excuse why he can't. I ask to see a video of it being fired, he tells me it is UNFIRED. I ask for a copy of the Form 3 he claims it is on, as well as his FFL/SOT, and he drops off the face of the Earth. He had pretty bad grammar in his communications as well. I don't think most people here would have trouble spotting this clown, but in the interest of looking out for my fellow collectors, I thought I'd share.
  8. WTS: 60mm Mortar DD NEW PRICE $3,495

    Is this still for sale?
  9. WTB Pre-May HK53

    Hello, all! Interested in an HK53 pre-May dealer sample. Just curious if anyone out there has one they're interested in selling and if so, for how much. Thanks so much! -David
  10. SPF PRICE REDUCED M50 Reising .45 C&R $5500

    FNC1, That's correct. After Jul 12 of this year, you no longer need a CLEO signature. This was done to prevent local law enforcement from enacting de facto bans on NFA items. However, 41F requires you to notify your CLEO that you are acquiring an NFS item. You now need to mail or deliver a copy of your form 4 to local law enforcement.
