Does acknowledging that it 'has a tendency to go full auto' and THEN documenting the transfer pose any kind of problem. My gut instinct says yes. Either way, I would get the gun checked out. It has a major problem somewhere....likely in the trigger group or bolt.
There is NO gun registration in the United States. The rifle is NOT in his name or on any records that remain in a data base to track the gun to the buyer. In most states a FTF transfer of a long gun is legal. Check your state regulations. If a Bil of sale will make him fel better than it is a good idea. BTW- Clean it and get a murrys firing pin- That will eliminate the a possible slam fire problem. Also The 4473 was only used fr long guns after 1993" someone correct me if my date is wrong" - in which case there may be no record what so ever if he purchased it proior to 1993.The ATF can request the form 4473 from a dealer if there is an investigation. But they will have to know which dealer sold the gun, who bought the gun originally. Dealers are required to keep the 4473 for 20 years. And there is no data base to store this information. Edit- Looks like it was not fully operational untill 1998?
LG, they were playing fast and loose with their licenses, then ; NICS has only been around for a short time, but the 4473 has been mandatory for almost 40 years.....
Okay, what about the paperwork that's filed with the ATF? Is there a way to get the gun in my name with them?
