bigbore Posted July 28, 2021 Report Share Posted July 28, 2021 Been somewhat looking for a non C&R (cheaper) ANM2 to do another stinger build. The one below was posted a year ago saying it was welded to repair a cracked receiver. I didn't pay any attention because that would still be a C&R. A year later the guy posts the same gun, but this time he says the weld area was to repair a torch cut from importing. In 99% of the cases torch cut means it's a welded together demill and no longer a C&R. Obviously the seller has no idea how it got into the registry. Without a FOIA, there is no way to know but I think I'm just coming across as a jerk at this point. But anyhow.I've been in this business for 20yrs and I've seen some crazy stuff C&R wise. I've seen MGs that were obvious rewats that had no "maker" engraving. I've seen Maxims that were rewatted and the maker put their info and SN on the trunnion. I've seen a DWM MG08 that has the manufacturer listed as Spandau because that's what it says on fussee cover. I've seen MGs that were papered as "plate guns/rewelds" and properly engraved that I'm sure are 100% original guns. I've also seen original guns that have paper trails that stop in the 1970s manufacture dates passed off as C&R.One of my more recent headaches was while transferring an STG44 for a customer. The last person at the NFA to handle the transfer to me entered "STG" as model and "44" as caliber. It took a year to straighten that out. They wanted to see pictures of the caliber marking on the barrel. I asked why they don't look up the original registration and update it themselves. They said that don't have access to that information. So how do they know if the form 4 they are approving is a C&R or not?http://www.sturmgewehr.com/forums/index.php?/topic/21088-wts-general-motors-div-blc-anm2-30-cr/ Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
