Just like open bolt guns made before a certain date are okay, ones made after are not. Just like dealer samples at some point in time after May 19, 1986 became pre 86 keepers, when prior to May 19, 1986, you had to get rid of them upon surrendering your license. Just like an original stock on a Canadian High Power is okay, but an exact reproduction is not okay, but an exact reproduction of this is ok, but an exact reproduction of that is not okay, but if the request came in on an alternate Tuesday and Saturn were aligned with a tree frog, then maybe......Hope this helps to clarify.
Who knows with that lot.
Only two guns laws needed in this country:
1) Certain people shall not own or possess guns (felons, mentally ill, etc)
2) It shall be unlawful to use a gun in a crime.
That's it. Those two cover everything. No more needed.

Appears mine is from 1980, doubt I will make it till its 50 years old. Truth be told as no more can be made they should all be C&R, I mean all mg's, as that is about as curio as it can get right? SInce they about made out of unobtanium already- Yea, I know if wishes were...... Didn't think of buying that one commerative one that has been for sale, didn't think I would shoot it and that would be a real waste for me.

I also believe part of the C&R criteria has to do with"...not likely to be used in a crime..." or such, from memory.
A credible case could be made to add the WH '28 guns because they are also real authentic TSMG's, identical to their C&R Colt brothers, both in looks and functionality, produced from some of the same machinery and tooling, and by the same company, and only produced in low numbers as compared to WWII guns extant that are on the C&R list, and thus more rare. (subtle Arthur bait...)
Something like a M11/9, fails on several counts for C&R staus, in contrast: high numbers produced, no historical interest, easily concealable, recent production.
Of course, it only really matters if you want to introduce the gun to a few certain states.

Yeah .. I realized that about an hour after I posted....if there were 609 made then where were the other ones after 174? ..... DOOH!

Last I looked (and I'll admit it's been a while), oddly enough, even though there were only 17 Vietnam War Comm. 28 WH TSMGs made, they are not on the C&R list. I will stand corrected if mistaken. The 85 WWII and 145 KW Comm. 28 WH's are C&R.
This kind of makes the matching serial number set of Comm's that is (was?) for sale on Subguns for $48,000 sort of hard to move with the one odd-ball gun in the lot.
