My understanding is that any (non NFA) firearm that is more than 50 years old is OK to purchase with a C&R FFL. Does this mean I can legally purchase any (non NFA) firearm mfg'd in 1950? Is it the specefic gun or the model? Can I buy a 51 year old Colt 1911 or does that have to go through a 01 FFL?

I hope I've written what I'm trying to ask.
Thanks

I've got a number of older guns that don't specifically appear on the C&R list on my 03 license. It really is true, any gun over 50 years old that doesn't fall under NFA rules is a C&R. Full auto, short barreled rifles, etc. are the exceptions.

You can buy any C&R gun even a Machine gun or SBR as long as that gun was built >50 years ago or is on the C&R list. So if you want a class 3 gun that is C&R it can come directly to you from the individual or dealer as soon as BATFE approves the transfer. This will cut at least 6 months from the time needed to transfer a class 3 gun. You still must do the fingerprints and picture.

FYI only complete guns are C&R eligible. For example a USGI 1911 frame is not.
