Sturmgewehr turned in
 
Well, at least the local cops did the right thing and didn't melt it down.

Neat, hopefully it goes to a good museum. I wouldn't mind taking care of it though....

I laughed when the policeman said only SS units carried them...

"They will allow the owner to sell it"....

Well, if it wasn't registered prior to 1986, I don't know who she could sell it to....:cry:

Considering the level of technical and legal ignorance in this article, wouldn't it be ironic if she turned it in with the tax stamp rolled up in the buttstock or somesuch? :tongue:

It is bitter sweet. Fantastic that they recognized what it was and saw the value in it. A piece of WWII history saved indeed! What about a Lithgow L1A1 from '68, would that be considered a piece of Vietnam War history worth saving?

They should be allowed to add these weapons to the NFA list. A veteran
earned this weapon and his family should be able to benefit from it.

Relax guys it was a NFA registered firearm, registered during the 68 amnesty.
