    As suggested on this forum, I wrote ATF regarding the 50 year rule and enclosed a copy of the response from Edward M. Owen, Jr dated 12/2/97. I just received a reply from ATF and they restated the position of the 1997 letter, namely that "...any firearm that was actually manufactured more than 50 years prior to the current date meets the definition of a curio or relic..". This letter is signed by Curtis H.A. Bartlett, Chief, Firearms Technology Branch.

    I now have my own copy of the letter on official ATF letterhead, addressed to me PERSONALLY.

    Thanks for the advice guys.

    I am glad you got the letter - I wish they would just produce a copy of that in the FFL Newsletter they send out. Too many people out there are ignorant of the definition.
