Yeah, the AR15 is Now Becoming C&R Eligible (YouTube video)
All my best,
It's about being 50 years old.
What some face with buying them to ship to their home are FFL's who aren't well versed in it and who refuse to cooperate. To quote the ATF, "it is not necessary for such firearms to be listed in the ATF's C&R list." https://www.atf.gov/firearms/curios-relics
It's about being 50 years old. No modifications or caliber changes seem to be allowed, which puts some of those old WWII era Mausers rebarreled in .308 into question. Do gunmaker enhanced early M39s like Devel put out qualify?
Note that some firearms on the list are considered curios already, even tho not 50 years old. FN HiPowers "Rennaissance" 9mm, up to 1976 are C&R. The newest would only be 41 years old. Most of these are $2000 and up heavily engraved and some gold plated. Not your average Alaskan guide bear gun.
As the link to the Forgotten Weapons site notes, there are over 10,000 SP1's - semiautomatic AR15's eligible. In the language of the anti gunners they would state that we could buy an assault rifle "thru the mail" and ship it directly to our home without any FFL or background check. Technically accurate enough for them. We are left to argue what constitutes an assault rifle. I don't think being C&R would change CA or NY's laws. I guess that leaves more for us.
We are now looking at any semi auto gun made before 1967 or so being C&R. Next year it's 1968. The year after, 1969. Keep going far enough and the HK91 I bought in 1978 will be C&R. You younger guys have some good times coming.
This is not true. Fully automatic C&R firearms can be shipped directly to a C&R licensee once all of the other formalities have been met.
As noted, not correct. In fact the C&R list published by ATF has an NFA section. The first C&R gun I ever bought was a machine gun. Something nice about having the mail man deliver a MG to turn front door.
And the original production model AR15s have been C&R-eligible for quite some time now. Those would be the full-auto Colt/Armalite model 01.
The department had one bought new in the mid 60's. Threeprong flash suppressor, pencil barrel and a slick side. traded in years ago .
I now want to get a 300 blackout and it uses the AR platform. I had no personal problem with the platform, the Colts tight tolerances and it's accuracy was good enough at 400 meters but it's tendency to be fouled by the least bit of dirt,grass,leaf or just dust is why I have never owned an AR. I now know that the term AR 15 does not mean it is made by any certain manufacturer or that the tolerances are tight. I would like to see NFA repealed as the 3 round burst kit was the cats meow firing the M16 and with perfect conditions it functioned flawlessly.
If you look closely you can see the "Patents Pending" mark! Wonderful!
