Just stuffed my C&R paperwork in the mailbox!
« on: August 28, 2011, 11:31:39 pm »
Exactly what it says on the tin. I'm pretty psyched about this; I have plan to order a full crate of M-Ns and have UPS drop it off  >:D. I'd love to hear some suggestions from everyone here regarding other interesting pieces to get. Particularly, I'd like to know about uncommon guns on the C&R list...everyone knows about M-N's, Krags, K-31's, Mausers, etc...what's out there that's C&R legal but bizarre, interesting, and not "the usual"?

    Steyr M95 carbines are outside the usual fare but pretty readily available. Straight pull bolt action fed from en bloc clips and chambered in the manly 8x56R. More recoil than a Mosin carbine too  >:D

    Pretty much anything over 50 years old is considered C&R these days, the first thing on everyone's mind is mil surp, but there is plenty of commercial stuff that is eligible too. Think of all those pre 64 winchesters????  Also when you get a crate, remember that that's 20 of them (i just contacted one of my distributors for the same thing) and they tend to be packed in a solid block of cosmoline (a little exaggeration but you get the idea) also you CANNOT sale the stuff you bring in as a C&R for quite sometime, local ATF here recommends keeping on hand for at least a year, and if you start showing a trend of selling more than you are keeping, the ATF will come have a talk with you.

    I had grand schemes of doing similar things with my C&R, in the end I just paid the extra money for my manufactures license. only advice would be to read the regs, then read them again. The license is only for collecting, not selling.

    Indeed.
