    Please say NFA, its the more accurate term

    Speaking from a dealer perspective, find a gun that you want and if it is in state, they will do your form 4.

    If the gun is out of state it will likely be required to be remanufactured to be CT legal. Joel Cramer at Remarkable Arms in Wallingford is an expert at this. He can take you through the process.

    That having been said, I am working on two builds right now. An Uzi and an MP5. If you are interested in either, I would be happy to do what I can to earn your business. Including rebuilding the uzi to be Safe/Full and then Joel can handle your Form 4 and state compliance.

    So, is it CT then that is the state that bans "select fire" weapons so MG's have to be modded to full-auto (and safe) only?

    Or are there two states that require that?

    Unless you have alot of money and are willing to take the time to jump through the hoops

    your best bet is either the Airsoft or BB gun versions, much cheaper to own, buy and feed

    Or make a Gatling gun :) then you just have to pay to feed it.

    In CT, machineguns can be full-auto only. So, a selector switch can only select, "Safe" or "Full-Auto".

    Gun laws give me headaches. What possible rational reason could there be for such a restriction? It would be funny if it wasn't so insane.

    An old fella I bumped into at the hot-dog stand at the gun show once opined, "Every young man should once own a machine gun, and a convertible-roof automobile. That way, he would learn that he would never want to own another one."

    The UZI seems fairly affordable (in machine-gun dollars).
    Tolerates reloads.

    CT was the place of an incredible amount of firearm manufacturing throughout american history and how the congress critters that the voters put in are rather against firearms, Joe Lieberman for instance dosen't even like firearms in VIDEO GAMES.

    To answer the select fire debate, the reason that the gun has to be configured to SAFE/AUTO rather than SAFE/SEMI is to be in compliance with CT laws regarding the assault weapons ban.

    Machinegun = legal.
    Assault weapon = illegal.

    Assault weapon, being defined as something that has select fire capability. So the traditional three position SAFE SEMI FUN switch positions are not legal under that state's set of laws.

    I know it dosen't make sense but the sign on my door says "I'm a law abiding citizen and I hope my customers are too."

    Well thats fine, I'm used to CT's screwed up gun laws. Eventualy I want to expand my WW2 collection into some cooler things that you can't own without class 3. Well you can with some of them, but only in semi auto long barrel balls removed versions. Thats like buying a V6 Corvette.

    BAR
    MG42
    STG44
    Browning 1919
    Bren
    PPSH41
    etc:D

    I just need to wait until I have the money to spare, they are super expensive and not cheap to feed. The MG42 alone can eat 1,500 rounds per minute!:eek::D

    OTOH this will wake you up on a Sunday morning faster than coffee!


    GoingQuiet thanks for the info, I'm looking more for older stuff. But my friend may be interested in the MP5, I'll talk to him and PM you if he is. He has a thing for the G36, is their any way to get one of those our are they to new?

    I'm not 100% positive but I am reasonably certain the G36 was made after 86, so no transferrables exist.

    And as an import, an original would have to have been in-country before 1968 or it would be a "Dealer Pre-sample."

    A Class 02 could build an SL-8 into one, but never sell it to a "civilian."
