I was reviewing old posts on here and there was one about a guys visit to the ATF vault and their collection of NFA weapons however the link to his pictures was broken. Since this was in 2006 Im not surprised the photos are no longer there but has anyone had a chance to see the collection or have photos of whats inside? Link to the original post below.

What's up with the hopper on the Japanese Type 11?  It's different than normal.  Extended?

It’s a wonderful place to visit. Got to go a few years back when I was still on the job. Lots of very cool and rare things in there.
