    I mean, a full-auto genuine WWII weapon. Would I need a class three? It was manufactured before the 80's wasn't it?

    First step- dig up $20k+.

    Second step- find someone willing to part with one.

    Third step- wear out several pencils filling out paperwork.

    Fourth step- buy several more guns to play with while you wait for your papers to clear.

    :D

    1. Find a transferrable gun for sale. There is an M1A1 on GunBroker
    2. Find the money - it is $22,000 Buy It Now
    3. Do the paperwork. Pay $200 transfer tax.
    4. Arrange delivery through a "class 3" dealer.

    It is not that simple but those are the basic requirements.
    Oh, yeah, it has to be legal in your state, too.

    There is no "class three" license to allow you to buy machineguns, silencers, etc.

    You fill out an atf form for each "title II" firearm you want to acquire, pay $200, and wait for your paperwork to go through.

    The "class three" license is for dealers.

    http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/ViewItem.aspx?Item=269948678 There's the one Watson was mentioning...

    And it really is a fairly straightforward process...

    1. Can you own a gun? If yes, proceed to 2, if not, you're not getting one legally.

    2. Can you own the machine gun you want legally in your location? If not, stop here.

    3. Find one for sale.

    4. Acquire money for the one you found for sale.

    5. Enter agreement to purchase.

    6. Fill out the form 4 transfer paperwork with CLEO signoff or trust information.

    7. Submit the form, with the fee.

    8. Wait.

    9. Wait.

    10. Wait.

    11. Get your tax stamp.

    12. Get your gun.

    13. Celebrate by shooting half the guns cost in ammo. :evil:


    Really, it's steps 1, 2, and 4 that trip most people up depending on the gun.

    You're asking to buy a WW2 vintage weapon? Then you ask whether or not it was manufactured before the 80's?

    How old are you?

    Public education is in sad shape to say the least.
