Re: Do NFA regulations apply to antique firearms?
As you know, be careful with what you modify.
Although I do believe that modifying a non-NFA item should be legal, but only those built before the cut-off dates should be A-OK for cuttin. That is purely personal opinion tho! But when my old friend from Florida purchased this, I was sure he had to get a stamp for it... but the simple E-Mail he got back from someone at the BAFTE was... "Why do you think that?"
I was astonsihed! It wasnt considered an AOW!
The gentleman said it could be any manufacturer, and practically any model within such manufacturers catalog. ATF ruled that because you have to fold it to fire it, and because of the trigger that sticks out, it resembled a handgun too closely to be removed from its Title 1 classification.
