No fussing around with FFLs. I think there is a gov't website that shows all the details and gives you instructions on how to get started. I'll look it up and post it.

My basic understanding is that you can get guns that are considered curios and relics which I think means they are 50 or more years old and or have some sort of historical significance. You can get them without a FFL transfer so they come right to your door. Gotta love that huh?!?

Google C&R License, and go to the government site and download all the forms for the C&R license. IIRC my last renewal they also required a Citizens Certificate Of Compliance (simple form to fill out). It costs $30 for 3 years. You will also have to submit to your local CLEO a form that tells them you have the C&R license. You must also have a bound book in which you will have to enter all the C&R weapons you acquire or dispose of with or without use of your license. But none you had before you acquired the license.
They will send you a book which lists all the C&R weapons as well as some other manuals on Federal Laws. The 50 year rule is not that cut and dry. For example the Winchester model 94 has been in production for well over 50 years but only certain ones are C&R's. These will be listed in the C&R book they send you. You are also subject to a yearly inspection visit from BATFE for compliance.
Once you get your license (usually takes about 4-5 weeks)you can email (to most vendors) a signed copy of your license and they will deliver the weapon directly to the address on the license.
Hope that helps.

It's not just guns more than 50 years old. My first C&R purchase was a CZ82 made in 1992.

I knew there were other reasons a gun can be considered a C&R but I can't remember them. What else qualifies a rifles as C&R

There's a list available of all the C&R guns and most seem to be either old or expensive but a few newer ones slip through. These tend to be odd caliber weapons like CZ's in 9mm makarov or Spanish built handguns in 9mm largo..

I like to search websites that have specific C&R sections like J&G sales and royal tiger imports. Amongst the usual SKS's, mosin nagants, steyr carbines and nagant revolvers you sometimes see cool stuff like Lugers, ex police issue CZ's and odd old british empire issued shotguns. I like the history behind weapons and to think some Czech policeman carried my CZ on a daily basis is really cool! Maybe he was I a shoot out or two with it??

My 91/30 is 88 years old. All original serials. Cold shot is insanely

accurate-perhaps 1.5" at 100 yards, with surplus ammo.

Such history in a working rifle. It was re-arsenaled in 1930.

Recently saw an unarsenaled 1891 with the original front sight,

barrel bands, and sling mounts. There is some incredible stuff out there.
