The 50 year C&R NFA Rule.

The C&R class of weapons says it must be 50 years or older to qualify for that class. My question is, does the 50 years start upon on the date of manufacture? I would think a S&W revolver made in 1960 would qualify as a C&R firearm because it is over 50 years old.
Now would the same logic apply to NFA items? In 1972 I used a Form 4 to convert (manufacture) a semi-auto FAL rifle into a selective FAL. In two years, does that FAL rifle change its class from the "general class" of NFA items into the C&R NFA class of items? I would think so as I still have the original dated Form 4 as proof of date of manufacture. One must ask because we are dealing with the BATF, a Gov't. body.
