In Response To: The 50 year C&R NFA Rule. (Bill in WI)
how it works with C&R on conventional arms is the date of modification
Dad or gramps sporterized something in the sixties or earlier it's C&R
if it was built in the 70s or later on an older action...no go
ATFE don't enforce this at all on 01 guns but that's the basic rule
Antiques remain antiques regardless of date of rework/rebuild so long as the frame/receiver is of antique era and that's even weak as some Winchesters were only serialized upon the detachable lower tang
to do basic repair work you must detach it resulting in an unserialized frame
same situation as detaching the serilized front trunnion from some AKM variants which the bureau prohibits however in reality it's the very same thing
I'd suspect conversions to full auto will turn C&R once they reach the 50 year date of manufacture to NFA
not before that.
