    browning 1919

    here is a question for you folks that know far more about firearm legalities than i:

    i have the chance to own a WWII browning 1919, 30-06 caliber, fully automatic, in firing condition. this is not a registered gun at this point, the current owner just realized that this weapon is quite illegal and wants to get rid of it. the price is right but i don't know what my options are for legalizing this gun. can i register it through the atf and pay for an 'approval' stamp even though it isn't a registered gun right now? can i convert it to semi auto with the kits i see advertized on the internet, would it then be legal for me to own? thanks in advance

    Stay far, far away from this gun. No civilian machineguns can be legally registered after 1986.

    You could possibly use some parts off it to make a semiauto based on a civilian-legal receiver, but I believe the existing auto receiver would have to be destroyed. I could be wrong on this, though.

    My advice is steer very well clear of any unregistered machineguns.

    thanks. this is the same advice i've recieved from a few people now, so i will be staying away from it. i think i'll tell the current owner to destroy it, he was worried about this also. i believe that cutting the reciever into pieces with a cutting torch should render the gun scrap? it's a nice gun but not worth hard time.
