Default noob to class 3

after talking to my tax attorney today it apears my schedule for acquiring a class 3 firearm may be accelerated. i got a local dealer that will help me with the paperwork transfer etc.

my problem is how the hell do i actually FIND a freekin M16??????

its not like you can go call up colt and such.

tips on where to look would be appreciated.

subguns.com is a starting place. Auctionarms has a class III section. And if you have a Class III dealer that does not know where to shop for an M-16, you need another dealer.

i havent talked to em yet. my time frame may be moved up just got really good news yesterday. so i was wanting to hit you guys up for online suggestions i will be going to see them in a week or so if things work out as i think they will. kinda want to have a price range so i know what im buying from them is reasonably in the ball park for what i want.

there are two other local class3 folks one doesnt stock anything so its transfer only and didnt get much helpful info when i was asking about paperwork etc. the other guy is a little on the loony side.

thanks ill check those sites they didnt come up on my google searches prolly had the wrong key words.

thanks C3, found a good dealer off subguns. thanks very much for the information. i also got my actual tax paperwork today and my tax liability is far below what i have set back to cover it. so tomorrow im moving forward with the first step in the NFA class3 club.
