The wording from the ATF is that the gun must be original. If it's questionable, you have to submit paperwork to ATF and await a ruling.

This can be a fuzzy area, but essentially, a license holder can't buy an M-44 on his license, throw on a plastic folding coyote tan stock, and add lasers and rails to it. The non C&R guy can do what he likes, as long as the gun doesn't violate any state, local, or fed laws.

As Janik said, I found nothing that states that if a firing pin breaks, that you can't replace the firing pin.

As for marauding bands of ATF agents, I have heard of people being asked to provide their collections for inspection at a field office, although rarely, and usually there was something that triggered it.

I wasn't speaking of "radical changes" like lasers and folding stocks and other such paraphernalia. I was meaning like a synthetic or sporter stocks, sight modifications as in open sights and nothing radical.

If you put a sporter stock on your M91/30, it will lose it's C&R status. If you buy it with a C&R, you have to leave it "stock" per the rules.

I would get one from a dealer. My M91/30 was only listed at 99 dollars, and I can do whatever I want to it.

I just picked one up for 48 bucks. I'm gonna alter it any damn way I want. I'm thinking Monte Carlo stock and some Christmas lights...

Did you get it that cheap from a dealer or with a C&R?

I bought it at a gun show. It was 60 bucks on the 20% off rack.

I couldn't resist. I wanted a cheap rifle to mod out. It's pretty cool all by itself, though.

I love my 91/30. That thing is a beast, and it always gets a comment or three at my range.

I like to touch of a few after sunset. The muzzle flash is nice.

Muzzle flash must be the politically correct term for "huge effin fireball".

It's great...

Me: "Hey guys, is the range clear and ready to go red? I want to shoot off a few rounds right quick."

Other shooters: "Sure. Go ahead. I hope that old rifle of your doesn't blow up or anything. Can it still shoot right?"

Me: "Yeah, the rifle is fine. It's simple, but I like it."

Other shooters: "You need to get an AK or a Mini 14 or something. Then you can have a real rifle to bring to the range."

Me: *silently shoulder's my 91/30*

Other shooters: "Those rifles remind me of those crappy muskets they used way back when"

My rifle: "BOOOOOOOOOOOM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

Other shooters: "WTF!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!"

Me as I eject the round out of the chamber: "Yeah...the rifle isn't too flashy, but I guess it works fine for me. It only cost me 99 bucks so I can't complain."

Other shooters: *complete silence as they go back to shooting their firearms*

Radical enough to break the rules of a c&r... Just buy one like normal. They are cheap. I just bought one today for $145 after tax, with a bunch of accessories and a box of ammo.

$48?!?!? That is a deal, even if it has a few issues!!! The cheapest I've seen them is about $75 these days. Most everyone who has them in stock is between $100 and $125.
