There was so many different answers to this issue. An overwhelming amount of "do this" and "it's not a MG" and "you have nothing to worry about" vs. the other half saying "get rid of it" or "why are you even talking about it". We knew it was a MG from the beginning. We read the BATFE's regs regarding the M2 long before we started asking on different forums. We wanted to see if the weapon could be transfered to someone that was allowed to own it.

This forum was the most beneficial and gave the best opinions, we were surprised to see the amount of basically wrong and illegal answers. I do not know much about owning a class 3 but I knew the basics, and some of these firearms forums are going to get you in trouble.

Not this one BTW, all of the responses were aligned with the regs, which led to the destroying of the receiver. I wanted it to go to a historical society, but it was not mine to make that decision. Ultimately, we feel it was the safest route and the easiest. BATFE was not polite when it was mentioned.

Yes, you found the right place to ask. The difference is that this board is full of actual machinegun owners, collector, dealers, etc. You can get real data here instead of gun show opinions you get on other forums. 95% of gun enthusiasts know nothing about our niche area.
