I was approached via email on another board about a Handy Gun
Here's the context:
"I have access to an H&R Handy Gun. I contacted ATF NFA and found that it is on the registry. But I know that the original owner died in 1973, and it has passed through a couple hands without them realizing what steps were necessary to keep it in legal standing.
Any idea how I can get this legally transferred and stamped? Unlikely that the attorney for the original estate is still around. Find the most current heir, transfer it to them (tax free transfer) and then to me ($5 tax)? Or is there a way to skip the intermediate step?"
Any thoughts? Normally I suggested an attorney versed in NFA but this isn't a high dollar item. The cost to rectify the issue might outpace the value
Thanks for your thoughts
