curio & relic

A Federal Firearms License (FFL) is a license in the United States that enables an individual or a company to engage in a business pertaining to the manufacture or importation of firearms and ammunition, or the interstate and intrastate sale of firearms. Holding an FFL to engage in certain such activities has been a legal requirement within the United States since the enactment of the Gun Control Act of 1968. The FFL is issued by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (BATFE, commonly known as the "ATF")

    C&R audit question

    Considering getting a curio and relic FFL 03 license (while they're still useful in WA, I know you OR guys have had them rendered useless). For those of you that have had your C&R for a while, have you ever been audited? From my conversations with C&R holders I've never heard of anyone ever...

    Washington  1639 and C&R FFL

How does this affect C&R license holders? Given, for instance, that...

    C&R FFL in WA

    I did the Google thing and didn't come up with anything meaningful. Can anyone tell me what impacts, if any, i1639 and any of the other nonsense laws that have passed in the last few years have on 03 FFLs? Specifically, are there any state restrictions or requirements beyond the standard...

    How to register C&R NFA

    I have a curiosity question. Met up with someone who has a pristine Maxim 1910 machine gun. His story is it's a heirloom from his Finnish great grandfather who was in the Russo-Finnish war. It recently came into his possession, literally covered in canvas in his grandfather's barn in Alabama...

    Washington  The C&R Exemption

    I'm reading the February, 2019 magazine from Washington Arms Collectors (WAC), and they are indicating there might be an exemption based on the Federal Curio & Relic (C&R) license. The C&R license allows the license holder to transfer firearms older than 50 years and other specifically-listed...

    Picked up a couple C&R pistols at a big retail store.

    The one in Tulalip. I have had good luck finding stuff there. Recently picked up two pistols there, first was a 1916 Erfurt P08 and the other was a nice Gray Ghost P38. The Luger is all matching except for the magazine, which is a correct wood bottom mag. Bore is bright and shiny.
