what the....


I would think it's a jail sentence waiting to happen. Doesn't mention having to send it to a class 3 dealer, leads me to believe that he doesn't know what he has (most likely an unregistered machine gun).

You'd buy it, have it transfered to your FFL, the FFL would to to run your background, and they'd be doing the hold music while the LEOs were on the way.

At least that's what I think about it.

Why would an unsuspecting innocent buyer go to jail?

Why would an innocent go to jail? I don't see the full auto switch in place, so why would someone who truly doesn't know and without an expert's reason to suspect something be in such trouble?

Doesn't seem right. If I didn't come here on occasion I could see myself bidding for it and never knowing.

In any event, are people SURE it is illegal?

Chances are that an innocent buyer may not do jail time, but the seller will have a lot of explaining to do. The buyer will have to surrender his rifle to the ATF. This could also be an ATF sting. Buyer beware.

Run Forest run.

Ignorance of the law is no excuse in a prosecution. This thing if legal, is worth about 25-30K.

That the auction starts at about 24 hundred with no reserve is very odd, indeed.

The seller makes no reference to a transfer only to a Class III dealer, which is also very odd.

This is not just another "gun". It's a U.S. Govt. made and military issued machine gun. To be legal owned, it must have a paper trail of how it got into civilian hands.

No answers to any of this stuff is mentioned in the ad. They seem to be offering it as like it is just another gun for sale.

Very weird.
