    First Question

    If all other Federal and State requirements were met, does the NFA allow a private citizen to own a WWII vintage Quad-50? A Quad 50 is four Browning Machine Guns in one handy package.

    Second question

    If someone had a WWII vintage machine gun in this country but it had never been registered, can it be registered so that it can be owned and transfered?

    These are both hypothetical and do not apply to me or anyone I know.

    Is the quad mount regulated at all?


    I would assume that only the machine guns would be regulated

    Quad 50's are legally owned and often brought to Knob Creek for fun, demonstration, and sometimes rental by attendees (limited to supervised shooting on the range), as are a couple mini-guns. There are far more registered M2's than miniguns. You cannot register ANY unregistered WWII machineguns UNTIL there is a an NFA amnesty (which could occur if the the BATFE decides they need to clean up their books). Bear in mind rental fees could be over $1200-$1300 for four 100 round belts, should you decide to run a full belt through each simultaneously.

    I have seen several quad-50 mounts for sale over the years. The mounts themselves are unrestricted, but very expensive. You need to have 4 M2 Browning Machine Guns to go with it, and each one has to be registered seperately.

    Once I saw a quad-50 mount that had been retrofitted with 4 M-134 miniguns. An SOT built it for show. Looked very cool but I hate to think about how much it would cost to shoot 12,000 rounds per minute of .308 for even a few seconds.

    If someone did have an original WWII vintage machine gun that was never registered, it cannot be registered. It is contraband and must be turned in.
