I was wondering if there is an age requirement for a FA gun? Can I buy something now at 19 or do I have to wait till 21?

I do believe you have to be at least the ripe old age of 21 to own a NFA class III item.

:( Oh well, I guess I'll have more money saved for ammo by then!

You can purchase an NFA item at 18 from a private seller or create one for yourself. You must be 21 to buy an NFA item from a dealer.

Just for clarity, if "FA" means full-auto (i.e. - a machine gun) then no, you can't manufacture one for yourself at any age.

I meant to buy one. Saw an MP 40 for 5k and suddenly got a hankering. :D

Five............! Better check again, I sold mine back in 03 for eight and the prices I've seen recently seem to be in the mid to high teens!

Want to post a link, Chevelle? You might be seeing a replica because a real MP40 should not be any less than about $10,000 right now.

Why... am I only 19... That's the cheapest MP-40 I've ever seen. Oh well, given that unbelievable price, maybe a $10,000 MG42 will pop up someday when I'm old enough to purchase one.

I think the armslist listing is a scam.

Funny stuff!

I don't know of anyone who would buy off of Armslist without the sale being face to face and a 'done deal' at that time.

Not possible with NFA.

That 'for sale' listing has to rate as the poorest I've seen yet. Gun is supposedly in Michigan with a card from the Dallas gun store still in the photos.

The hacks are getting lazy, I guess. And whatever happened to stealing quality photos?

Hey, thanks for sharing, brought smiles. JT

JT, I just bought a Glock 34 off of Armslist without it being a FTF transaction. I asked for the guy's information first and checked for it to all add up and it did. Since he was an FFL it made it easy for me to check. I would have much more concerns trying to buy from a private individual who is not an FFL (or who didn't claim to be).

Again, you can purchase full auto at 18, provided it is a private party sale.

No, you can't. ATF will not approve any NFA transfer for an applicant under 21.

Also, there's really no such thing as a "private transfer" on an NFA firearm (not a legal one, anyway)

Just for clarity, if "FA" means full-auto (i.e. - a machine gun) then no, you can't manufacture one for yourself at any age.

Well, not make for yourself, per se, but could become an SOT and own a dealer sample for as long as you maintain the FFL07.
