The client allegedly has paperwork stating that they are registered. I am not sure as to dates or anything like that.

you have no idea as to what the details are and are making assumptions.
I would assume that he registered them just like I assume most people with nfa guns register them

sometimes i really feel you have a serious lack of knowledge of some of the subjects you reply to, or have a lack of ability to comprehend what someone writes. stop making assumptions would be a step in the right direction.

Gentlemen- the question was whether the Original Poster, a firearms dealer, could SELL them for the customer.

As I stated, there is separate paperwork to BE a machine gun dealer. If the OP is not a machine gun dealer, he may not hold those for sale. And as I said- ATF NFA Firearms Branch will have the definitive answer.

To the OP- I DO hope he has the right ATF paperwork. In recent years, as older folks passed away, we have had a lot of stuff showing up with DEWATS paperwork- which is no longer valid.

To FullAuto- no, you do not need a FFL to possess a registered full auto that you own. But you DO in order to sell them for others. Which was what was covered in the first post.

I understand why the law is the way it is, and that they will not allow "retroactive registration" because who's to say for sure if something is an old antique collectible out of grandpa's collection, or brand new made last week.

but it really is a shame to think of those older and antique and family heirlooms that have to be destroyed because someone didn't take the time to get them registered back in the 30s.



Makes you wonder what would happen with today's weapons...If they force a national registration of ALL firearms or "assault weapons" ...most of us probably wouldn't comply because it's the first step to having them taken away.

but what would happen down the line when we die off, and our firearms collections are handed down?

Lets hope we never get to that point with ALL weapons!

If they are registered, they are worth a fortune. If not,each is worth 10 years in a Federal penitentiary. Lawyer up. This is nothing to fool around with.

Legal registered full-autos should have been transferred to the heir on Form 5.

Not unless you rgrandfather registered them during the 1968 Gun Cintrol Act which was essentially anmnesty for ownners of auto firearms
Most were War bring backs at that ime.If you did not register your auto weapon then abnd kept the gun, it is illegal to ownn or transfer
There is no way to get around this 1968 GCA( Full autos were first made illegal to own unless properly registered with the proper licensing bodies under the 1934 GCA, percursor to the 1968 GCA).No way to make a bring back full auto legal now, I fyou 'missed' registration under the amnesty of the 1968 GCA. Period.

No to be confused with today's process of legal registration and transfer by the NFA re Class 3 weapons.

If that is true and it was registered during the 1968 GCA, then yes, it woud be in compliance and transferrable.
