You don't have to have an NFA for it." I've never heard of this before (I'm a newby so thats not surprising) I just want to make sure everythings on the up and up before I meet an unknown person to buy a gun off of. Anyone have any input or knowledge that could illuminate my situation.
some of the older mac10 were like that. they were grandfathered. however that only applies to the original owner at time of private registry. they are no longer grandfathered once they transfer so you would need a stamp for the gun and one for the suppressor buying it today.
best bet is to get the serial number and call up the nfa division and ask to be sure. those guys change their minds and rules faster than a teenage girl at an all boy teeny bop...
