What's up /w/
I'm living in Switzerland right now, but will be returning back to the US during the Summer. I was wondering if there was any way I could bring back a SIG 550 series rifle (civilian semi-auto model) to the US as a "souvenir" of my time spent over here.

I've lived here for two years, so buying it won't be too much trouble, just get a permit to buy it and then an export permit to get it out of Switzerland. The problem is with getting it into the states. I know that the ATF doesn't permit commercial importing of the SWISS MADE sig rifles since they're foreign made and don't comply with 922r. But is there any way at all that I could legally import a Swiss Arms rifle? Fill out some forms and pay an extra tax or something?

922r is one of the dumbest regulations that you will ever come across - though there are ways that you might be able to adjust the part count with less important items which are from the US to get the part count down to the magic 10 imported parts. I would guess that a large portion of the parts from the 551 Classic are interchangeable with a Swiss made 550. If you take half from the US 551 and half from the Swiss 550 - you could get yourself two working and 922r compliant "550 1/2" guns.

Granted, you might be able to slip through if the inspector who signs off on the ATF form doesn't quite know what they are doing and just rubber stamps it on the way. I know when I was coming back from England, I brought back an FN which was legal - but they never bothered to verify that it was 922r compliant.

The final option which gets into that area of skirting the law is to break it down and have it shipped part by part to someone in the US. Once you get back to the States...put it back together again. It will likely be a violation of 922r - but no one will know unless you tell them.

Disassemble rifle.

Package it securely and cover it with other junk.

Ship to the US over period of a few days.

Sarah Palin 13/03/21(Thu)11:33 No. 14623

The only way you can be reasonably sure is to call the ATF. At the very least you will have to ship it to an FFL and pay for shipping, and transfer fees. Be prepared to wait several months to a year (possibly longer) because the ATF has a huge backlog of pending approvals. Every NFA firearm, suppressor, and FFL application is handled by less than a dozen people.

What's the most effective and well balanced (range & damages) scoped anti-material rifle ?

I though it was the M107A1 first, then I discovered the XM109 and now that I know about the Anzio 20mm rifle I start feeling like the last one is the best.

I really love guns. I practice shooting. But I'm not an expert on this domain. That's why I'd love to have some better advices from people that really use these monsters.

Because the day I have the cash, I buy the fucking gun. No matter what's the price.

>>14589 As for the Anzio 20mm rifle, it shoots at 4,5K meters.

>what's the most balanced between all of these specifications ?
There's no such thing as a balanced AMR, they're all tailored to extremes. Even within their classification.

There's no such thing as 'best overall' only 'best at'.

Hey /w/. Not sure where else I'd go to ask this question but is it possible to get a copy of a firearm receipt? I lost mine and I'd like a copy of it. If I gave Big 5 (that's where I got it) a call would they still have it on record that I bought it?

>pic kind of unrelated

Sarah Palin 13/03/05(Tue)20:15 No. 14586

Legally they have to keep a record of the sale in the event that you go on a rampage and you claim they gave you the gun or other such cases where they want to be detached from responsibility. They may claim they can't which is BS for "I can't be bothered".

Im not sure if your area has a push to see certain weapons targeted for legislation into extinction.
Is there any truth to these stories I am reading that the federal government has shipped or sold weapons to "militant civilians" worldwide for years now? I wonder if those weapons were stripped-down versions of what the current ideal of 1o rounds of semi-automatic firepower.
It would be nice to know that military spec'd selectable fire weapons with 20 -30 round magazines weren't leaving the country faster than the U.S. citizen can surrender them.
So what would /w/ do if his hardware were outlawed?

Does he bring it in or register it?
Does he keep them and hide them?
Does he lose it or have it stolen somehow?

First off, thanks to anyone who reads the entire post and responds with something knowledgeable.

My question is about stainless steel. I don't need a bunch of percentages from Wikipedia about different grades. Dumb it down for me please. To the questions.

1. Should I assume that just because it is stamped with the word "stainless" stuff made in China might not be?
2. The magnetism question. Could someone really dumb this down for me.

Most 'stainless' knifes ship with an oil film and in plastic. I know that stainless *can* surface rust. I'm just confused about the whole thing. I know that magnets won't attract to some stainless. I'm really hoping someone can explain all this shit to me in a really dumbed down way. Again, simply quoting percentages of chromium wont really help me get my mind around it. Thanks.

Sarah Palin 13/02/22(Fri)01:26 No. 14564

If you are looking for a personal blade why go cheap? If you are planning on reselling the cheaper blades go ahead.
So now I dumb it down...
Instead of speculating whether the quality of your steel is adequate, just buy something U.S. or German made and you should be okay.

Sarah Palin 13/03/01(Fri)18:14 No. 14578

Honestly, you just kind of have to look into each specific steel or possibly that kind of steel from a certain manufacturer as they may have different ways of treating their steels.

To answer your questions:
1. Generally the stuff that just says "stainless" is crap but it can vary from knife to knife. Normally they are stainless though, even if they are crap.
2. I've heard that too but I don't think its that true as I've had good stainless knives stick to a magnet before. It may have been true with stainless steels used a long time ago but I don't think you can generally say that nowadays.

hey guys, a friend wants to trade me this antique marlin lever action 30/30 for my tattoo equipment (valued around $200), is this worth it?

Sarah Palin 13/03/01(Fri)14:31 No. 14575

Could be a close call. Here in CT I got that gun in much better condition for ~$500.
You have to factor in the worn away bluing, wood work and polish. Do some research on Marlin 336.
If it shoots, I would go with yes but I have no value in a tattoo gun.

Hello /w/

I live in Maryland. When times got tough (read as I lost my job about 6 years ago) I sold about 60% of my collection to dealers and other collectors. I do not have a FFL or collectors license, just a regular "Joe" who loves to go plinking and enjoys being an American with the right to own firearms. Anyways, got back on my feet a few years ago and started to fill my collection back in. Recently, I attempted to purchase a Spikes Tactical lower in 5.56 from a auction and when I went to my FFL they told me that NO ONE in Maryland is doing any transfers right now...... WTF ?!?!?! He could not give me a straight answer as to "why"....
My question is this : does anyone know "why" this is, and secondly does anyone know of any FFL dealers in Maryland that are accepting transfers of assault weapons ? Any other states going through the same bullshit ?

Thanks for the help bros...

Also - Martin O'Malley ( Our Governor ) is the biggest faggot in the history of Governors. I believe that he is introducing his new assault weapons ban bill on Feb 6th 2013 and the only reason he is taking this stance is because he is running for President in 2016.

not true, I had already set up a purchase of a lower from a guy in Texas with a bunch of them for sale, and when I went to my gun shop, they informed me that no one was accepting transfers. Its not due to "lack of lowers" its the scared ass public and retarded ass government. On a side note, went to a gun show yesterday and while there were no lowers there, I did get a great deal on 30rd mags and some Hornady 60 grain V-MAX for my AR. I decided to buy an 80% lower in .308 and finish it myself. I will upload pics when it comes.

Did you ever consider he was lying?

Sarah Palin 13/02/17(Sun)20:23 No. 14562

Because people are panic buying over a double dose of AWBs. Paperwork is backed up so far that it isn't worth doing regular transfers vs. what is sold in shop.
