Picked Up My M1927 Today!

After an incorrect fingerprint card, wrong serial number written on the form 4, and one "lost" application; they finally got it all straightened out.
It took about 8 months.

Having the wrong serial number on the form will definitely foul the works up. I bought a gun with serial number SN XXXX and my dealer put only XXXX on the form without the SN. What a zoo.

You should have seen the look on my face when I called NFA to check the status. They asked me for the SN of weapon. I gave them the number (that I read off of the copy of the form 4). After about ten seconds, the lady replied, "I'm sorry, that serial number is not on the registry."
It will still be a while. I have to send it off to be assembled into a gun. When it's done, I'll give you a yell!

I have every confidence that PK will hammer it into beautiful weapon.
This gun will actually have a special significance to machinegunbooks.com. Almost every part of the gun will be made from members of this board.
The only parts not made, refurbished, or retrofitted by members at this time are the stick magazines, small internal parts, and Lyman rear sight.
Even the reciever of the gun was made by a board member (REMEMBER: Though it will be a full-auto with the registered firinig pin, it is built on a 27A1 receiver, NOT a 28 receiver.)
I plan to let people know that my Thompson SMG (variant) is the result of the knowledge of people right here!
Also, I plan to give a full list of credits to everyone who has had a part in making this "spruce-goose" get off the ground. This project has been almost two years in the making!
I will let you know when the gun is finished.
