Register your M4?
 
A guy I work with said his son got a letter from the ATF stating that he had 30 days to send in the numbers on his M4, or face a search and seizure. This is related to Obama's list, (6 or so guns named specifically, he couldn't remember which ones). I am assuming we're talking about the civilian version of the M4, or course. A quick internet search led to nothing, no list or anything. Has anyone heard of anything like this?

What state do you, or your coworkers son live?

I'm interested in hearing more on this. All I have for input at the moment is...don't play games with the atf.

Are you sure it isn't a class-III version (i.e. real M4)?

bluez 02-02-2013 12:07 AM

yeah did somoene forget to enter the serial numbers on a class III application and they approved it by mistake and now want the numbers?

That be my guess at a most realistic scenario.

This is in NH. Are you guys referring to something like a Lightening Link? As far as I know, we're not talking full auto. I will check Monday morning, though. In any case, a REAL M4 would not be ownable in civilian hands, period, no?

It would be ownable as a NFA/Class III Gun.

Which requires registartion by serial number w/ ATF, extra backgound check, extra Taxes etc.

As far as I was aware.....Any select-fire firearm manufactured after May 1986 is not able to be owned by a civilian, with some possible manufacture's exceptions.....this would (possibly) not include a lightening link. (Which would turn a semi-auto into a full auto only firearm.)

But you can buy one made before that date, at least federal law permits, who knows about NH. Since the guy claims it's the ATF it sounds like a NFA matter not some local thing about semiauto ARs.

We also have a NFA/Class 3 forum that covers this subject in depth :)
