    I wish to thank everyone for the input on the BAR I found in my dad's attic. As a followup, I contacted the state museum and they are willing to take the weapon and additional arms I found as contributions.
    He had a tommy gun, M1 with rifle grenades, M2 carbine and all sorts of other gear. He must have had some sort of inside deal with a shipping clerk or somebody. Now I wished he would have talked about some of his experiences.
    Anyway, thanks.
    Tranquil

    I really had no use for any of it, and it might just contribute something by being on display. There were so many items that I hardly knew where to begin, or knowing what was legal or not. Plus, in reading the posts about the fines and possible sentences for having automatic weapons, it is better that they are gone.

    If they were not legally registered with the ATF before May 1986?

    It is likely the museum will have to forfeit them to the government, and they will be cut up for scrap metal.

    There are no exceptions for museum display unless the ATF determines they are of significant historical value.
    Which is unlikely, unless your grandfather was a WWII General.

    Too bad, so sad.
