Will this transfer out of state on a Form 3 or 4?

I believe form 3 to your SOT (done quickly) then form 4 to you.

You believe or you know?  Is this gun in the possession of a dealer - FFL/SOT who will efile the transfer to another dealer?

For some reason I’m not getting notifications of messages. The gun is in my possession on a form 4. I’m not a SOT. The local SOT said it would transfer dealer to dealer pretty quickly then on form 4 to the new (individual) buyer. That information needs to be confirmed especially if going out of state.

if on a form 4 , I DONT BELIEVE  E-FILE is POSSIBLE. it must jump thru the hoops like an individual. the last form -4 gun I bought was almost 11 months b-4 approval to my dealer. others claim 120 days or less . nothing like that has happened on my end the past 6 yrs or more

Form 4s to dealers seem to be running 60 - 90 days.

As I said...I own it on a form 4 in the state of TN. It is in my gun safe. Bob Naess built it on a C&R MG08 side plate. As I understand it from Bob no longer C&R due now a 1910. Exactly how it will/would transfer to someone in/out of state I’m not a expert. If interested please contact YOUR SOT for clarification.

It’s a magnificent weapon. Obviously built on a new unused kit imported years ago. I test fired 500 rnds flawlessly cleaned it sat it aside. I bought a 1917a1 all I want. Like to sell it if someone is interested if not I’ll keep it well taken care of and comfy

Good thing is I took the time and effort to assemble the spares, belts, cans, loader, gunners kit ect that today would take a lot of time and $’s. For what I’m asking is a loss.

sticknrudder, DAM RIGHT ITS A NICE PIECE ! speaks for itself LOUD AND PROUD . BOBS people do it as good as possible. the 08 side plate is not that uncommon. there was a time when the RUSSIAN gun would bring DOUBLE or MORE than the more common MG-08's all over the place. the C+R status is controlled strictly by the paperwork and how the manufacturer info is entered. BY regulation ANY C+R must remain in EXACTLY THE SAME CONFIGURATION as originally built to qualify. C+R's and be killed many ways but paper work is the main culprit. I have an exact match to your gun that has transferred as a C+R several times. its a fact BOTH the RUSSIANS AND GERMANS changed each others guns in every possible way. the GERMAN examples are easier to document, but in reality its the very first form entering the weapon in the registry that carry's the most weight. in this post, I brought up several things that could take many pages to explain fully.  Don't be discouraged. its not the gun its the available MONEY ! all the huge collections coming to market the past 3 years has used it all up . post WW II guns like M-16 / M-60 are still hot but the WW II and earlier took a hit. in 2002 it was almost impossible to find a Vickers for sale and in 2013 one collection dumped more than 40 at one time they are just now starting to recover and bring more money but still 30% below normal. so don't worry, the right guy WILL come along.

It is still C+R IMO since the "plate" is the firearm by atf definition and is over 50 years old (as I'm sure the registration forms would prove)   Configuration appears nowhere in atf's current published regulations cut and pasted as of today.  Additionally it clearly meets 3.C.

Curios or relics. Firearms which are of special interest to collectors by reason of some quality other than is associated with firearms intended for sporting use or as offensive or defensive weapons. To be recognized as curios or relics, firearms must fall within one of the following categories:

  1.  

    a. Firearms which were manufactured at least 50 years prior to the current date, but not including replicas thereof;

  2.  

    b. Firearms which are certified by the curator of a municipal, State, or Federal museum which exhibits firearms to be curios or relics of museum interest; and

  3.  

    c. Any other firearms which derive a substantial part of their monetary value from the fact that they are novel, rare, bizarre, or because of their association with some historical figure, period, or event. Proof of qualification of a particular firearm under this category may be established by evidence of present value and evidence that like firearms are not available except as collector's items, or that the value of like firearms available in ordinary commercial channels is substantially less.

     

    The market for early  heavy MG's  has fallen the way of Model T collections and is never coming back based on general suppy/demand curves.  There is literally tons of money in the current MG marketplace, but no interest.  Proportionally, the heavier and older it is, the bigger the discount. 08/15's are now close in value to MG08's, at one time MG08's were at least 4x more money, now they are just simply 4x heavier.  HTH

Spot on about the WWII guns, and all water cooled guns are WAY down, except for rare original Maxim's. The only thing lower than WC belt feds right now are pre-mays.  This gun is listed at a fair price considering the accessories.  Were it on a Form3, I'd probably buy it.
