NewportBarGuy: vossiewulf: fair price.The best I can do is $100./I've wanted one of those ever since I found out they existed.
vossiewulf: St_Francis_P: You know who else was a fan of the MP-44?Well he wasn't a fan before he was a fan. Which is why they called it the MaschinenPistole 44 when it was developed, because Hitler liked submachineguns and they wanted to hide that it was an assault rifle. Then he gave it a spin and ordered it into production as the Stg-44, and probably remarked to everyone around how brilliant he was for anticipating the need for this weapon.
vossiewulf: fair price.
Jim_Callahan: A German can swap magazines 17 times a minute without slowing? Wow, I guess they really are the superior race.
macdaddy357: Usually, guns that were used in crimes and rusty, non firing garbage are what it turned in at these things.
tallen702: Look again bubba: LinkThere's no national registry for everyday run-of-the-mill firearms (aka Non-NFA firearms) However, for weapons that fall under the national firearms act of 1968 (and the subsequent modifications/additions/etc.) such as machine guns, yes, there is one and it is called "The National Firearm Registration and Transfer Record"
tallen702: iheartscotch: An stg-44; wow wow wow wow wow; it's the holy grail of axis weapons.I beg to differ. I'd say the FG42 is the holy grail of axis weapons....
Snarcoleptic_Hoosier: "The French fight for glory, the English fight for land, and the Americans fight for souvenirs."I like hearing the stories about how this stuff gets from the battlefield to someone's collection
iheartscotch: An stg-44; wow wow wow wow wow; it's the holy grail of axis weapons.
BarkingUnicorn: So she can only sell it to a museum?
NFA: She can't legally possess that gun. Unless it's registered with that ATF in her name, it's illegal for her to possess it. The cops were right to say that it's a treasure and shouldn't be destroyed but it's an illegal gun. The penalty is 10 years in federal prison. Even if the gun was registered in her husband's for father's name, she can't possess it without having having it transfered to her name. Meanwhile it has to be in the possession of a class 3 dealer until the transfer occurs.If the gun was never registered, it can't ever be registered.
