    I own a "Trejo Modelo1 Rafaga" 22 cal. It has a selector and you can fire semi auto or full auto. The rate of fire is very fast. It was made in Puebla Mexico in a town named "Zacatlan de la manzanas", thats why it has an apple like logo of the brand.
    Any information about the quality of the pistol will be appreciated.

    Do you have any pictures of this gun?

    Also, I sure hope that you live somewhere other than in the USA, or that this gun is owned legally.:evil:

    Wait for picture

    I will post a picture tomorrow, and yes I live in Puebla, Mexico. But also here is illegal to possess full auto firearms. I buy it from a retired army lt. The pistol is very nice, the size is like a Walther PP.

    What is not correct about either hoping he's not in this country(ie: someplace where normal civilians can own full auto guns), or if in this country owns it legally?

    I agree, not "necessarily" correct. Your assuming its not in the registry. Who's to say it isnt/wasnt registered?

    Trejo full auto legal or illegal?

    Here in México all full auto weapons are not legal to own under normal registration laws.
    We need to register every firearm we own. We can´t register full autos, shotguns with barrels under 25 inches, automatic pistols in calbers over .380, also 223, and 7.62 rifles. This is in order you can´t use the police and military ammo in your guns.
    The law made an excemption if you are registered as a collector, in this partiular case you can own all types of firearms.
    In the United states you can own as registered collectors all arms considered curios or relics, and the trejo pistols are under that category. But I don´t know if that apply to the full auto model.

    Trejo Model 1 Pictures

    The grips are not original, the original ones were made of plastic. I'm trying to find ones. S3010163.JPG

    Trejo pistols had to be registered prior to 1986 to be owned by any legal collector in the United States.
    Anything after that would be classed as a dealer sample for law enforcement or military sales.
    Since Trejo is long out of business, the point is moot.

    I know the gun will empty the magazine in about one second.
    I know Winchester Super X solid point is probably the best ammunition to fire in these pistols.
    I know spare magazines are extremely hard to find.
    I know the guns were of quite decent quality.
    I know the guns will will break if they are fired a great deal set on full auto selector setting.
    I know that a really good gunsmith will need be employed if you wish to have the pistol repaired.
    I know it won't be cheap.

    Since these were manufactured outside of the U.S., they would have fallen under the 1968 NFA import ban.
