For those who aren't aware of this special FFL license, want more information on the C&R license, or for those of you who want a quick link to the C&R rules, firearms list, etc, here you go:



And here's the link to the Gun Control Act document (for your reading enjoyment):

One day I shall have my C&R License. It's certainly affordable enough! If only the CCDW License was, too.

Colt started selling the AR-15 to civilians in 1963.

A C&R is a firearm manufactured more than 50 years ago.

Ergo, the original AR-15s should now be C&R eligible.

I am the only one to think of this?

Would that count for and M1 Garand then? Or maybe a 1911 - they are ancient.


EDIT: The actual firearm has to be 50 years old. So finding one may be more difficult.
Firearms automatically attain C&R status when they are 50 years old. Any firearm that is at least 50 years old, and in its original configuration, would qualify as a C&R firearm. It is not necessary for such firearms to be listed in ATF’s C&R list. Therefore, ATF does not generally list firearms in the C&R publication by virtue of their age. However, if you wish for a classification of your particular firearm under categories (b) or (c) above and wish your item to be listed, you may submit the weapon to the Firearms Technology Branch (FTB) for a formal classification.

Please note that firearms regulated under the National Firearms Act (NFA) may be classified as C&R items, but still may be subject to the provisions of the NFA. If your C&R item is an NFA firearm (e.g., Winchester Trappers) and you desire removal from the NFA status, you must submit it to FTB for evaluation and a formal classification.
