I suspect that the large arms manufacturers like FN who control the worlds flow of arms are opposed. FN owns Browning and Winchester and many military arms producers.
Back in the 1960s the big arms merchants lobbied against surplus arms importation. Senators from Mass., Conn., were anti-gun but protected the UAW members who worked at Remington and Colt etc. These creeps led by Senator Dodds blocked arms importation. This battle over Milsurp is nothing new.

I still wish those 1 million M1 garands and carbines could hit our shores from Korea. I'd like a carbine.
FN made a semi auto FAL for the Brits, they used them in the Falklands war, they are 100% legal to own as the fire control group is different then the auto version. We will never see them here as a C&R.

Thanks! I thought somehow the SKS would be still excluded. One ATF provision bugs me however, that a museum curator or such must declare it a historic value. Has the SKS been declared as such? If so, no problem. But between us ok? It's no Mosin or a Mauser or an M1. Excellent rifle but it's historic value is insignificant.

If you can get your hands on a Soviet made SK, you might be amazed at its' accuracy. It is highly under rated.

Not underrated by me. I dig. It is not however what makes a rifle C&R, perhaps the opposite. The other question for you is this: WHERE ARE THE BUNS!?

Any non-NFA gun that is 50 years old is C&R eligible.

Eligible, not certified. For that it also must derive most of its value from its historic significance (read: not from being a practical firearm). There is also something about experts or museum curators rendering such opinion. For the exact language see the ATF website.

Yes, certified if it is 50 years old or older. ANY non NFA gun at least 50 years old is AUTOMATICALLY a C&R firearm.
Any gun under 50 needs to be certified by BATF. A gun with special historical value, for example, can be certified C&R by BATF.
Please don't make it more complicated than it is.

This is correct. I looked it up again. It says
Quote:
Any firearm that is at least 50 years old, and in its original configuration, would qualify as a C&R firearm. It is not necessary for such firearms to be listed in ATF’s C&R list.
Glad I was mistaken on this.
