I don't have my C&R FFL if thats what you are asking but do have a few C&R rifles.

I've got an Enfield, M1 Garand, M44 Mosin Nagant, and a German K98. I seem to add to my collection every months or so though :D

I have those also. The Mausers and Mosins,I have a bunch of. I think I'm going to start restocking on ammo for the time being. My safe is plain old stuffed. The c&r ffl was what I meant,yes. I sure hope more people get on this thread.

I have my C&R as well and have purchased the Yugo SKS, 2 M1 Garands (1 from CMP), and a Mossberg 44 US .22LR.

Right now, my gun purchasing is on hold to let reserves build back up, but I'd like to be buying some milsurp ammo and some accessories for the Garand, including a scope and scope mount. Brownells has discounts for C&R holders.

I've been drooling on the SOG flyer I got. I see a few pistols and rifles I'd like to pick up. Also, until I get a gun safe, I don't want to add TOO many rifles to have sitting around (even though my kids are all over 16).

I get 3 or 4 flyers but SOG is the best in my opinion. I have never got a bad deal and their prices are about the best. Every month I ask my wife if my 'toy books' have arrived.:) I think I must have a sickness or something.
My wife doesn't think it's normal to buy,buy, buy. I just tell her, this IS the last one!;)

I've had a C&R for years. I'm not into the current crop of milsurps as my main interest is pre-war S&W's and pre-war .22 auto pistols. (all C&R's). I use it so I don't have to worry about "State Lines" when buying. (For the most part.;) )
The dealer discount is also positive plus.

Anyone know how long the BATF takes to process a C&R application? I sent mine in a week or so ago. I already have 3 SMLEs (my son loves them) but I want to add a M1 Carbine and M1 Garand (for starters) to my collection.

Another question, are 50+ year-old M1911As on the C&R list?

It takes up to the eight weeks the paperwork says, mine took that long. I have heard of other people getting them sooner. As for the 1911, it should be, but if it's a commercial model it may not. Check out the list you get when you receive your license.

Thanks, all, for the feedback. I guess there's not much else to do but wait for the process to take its course. Ugh. I've also got 2 CMP orders I'm waiting on. Not much fun, all this waiting...

FWIW, the license takes 2-3 months average. Your mileage may vary. Re: 1911A1's- there is the LIST from BATFE- such as all Winchester 88s, all Colt Woodsman pistols, etc, and there is AGE- all firearms where THAT GUN is 50 yrs or older. A 50 yr old Marlin 39A IS a C&R, a 49 yr old Marlin 39A is NOT. So, if you can show that YOUR 1911A1 is 50 or older, it is a C&R arm. Enjoy- the C&R FDFL is the most fun you can have for $30.

WooHoo, my C&R arrived last week! Unfortunately, my Jeep is consuming all my C&R procurement $$!

I think it took me about 8 weeks to get mine. That was a year ago. So far I've gotten a Swiss K-31 and a CZ82. Both from J&G Sales.
