Thread: WW2 machine gun

  1. WW2 machine gun

    This passed through a dozen people before it got to me, I don't know who its about, or IF its true, but it made me wonder. (I'll add a name just to simplify)

    So Bob has a WW2 fully auto machine gun. He's had it for almost 10 years. It was never registered and he needs money so he's trying to sell it. The problem is the few people with enough money to buy it don't want an illegal gun. As far back as he can check ( about 3 owners and 20 years) it was never stolen. But the question is can he or someone else make it legal by registering it as a machine gun?

    Now that I've set off about 10k alarms at the ATF, does anybody know if someone say, finds an old full auto in grandpa's Attic from WW2 can get it registered or made legal somehow? Or are the only options to keep it hid or have it destroyed? I live in TN and around town is where I heard it, if that helps.




    P.S. I hate gun registration of any kind!

    Here is your answer. Transfers of National Firearms Act Firearms in Decedents? Estates | ATF If it isn't already registered, having it is a felony. It cannot be registered now either. All the above violates the Second Amendment and Miller vs US ( 1939 ) but that is where it stands.

    Normal is an illusion. What is normal to the spider is chaos to the fly.

  5. If it is not on the NFA rolls it can never be. So owning it is a felony. Run away and do not look back..

  6. No, I honestly don't have it, but I figured I could track down who does and buy it. Supposedly they only wanted $500 for it. But I also know how big a deal it is if you get caught with one not registered. So even if I'd LOVE to have it its not worth the risk to me.

    I am not sure it could even be turned over to a museum or the ATF without causing the owner a lot of legal grief.

    There was an unregistered stg44 at one of the recent joke of a gun buy backs that ended up going to a museum.
