Ted - WOW ! Interesting idea and this really would help the new owners. I just browsed the list from the FN-49 link and saw threads that I had worked but have since forgotten about!

Good job!

This is the part of my job title I like best- helping us know OUR rifles better.

Now, I need more ideas for search areas. Get cracking you lazy buggers!
:rofl:

Hmmmmm - the silence is deafening ....

Well, I still think this is a great idea. We lost a lot of data when GunBoards moved to their new server and software. The Parallax board has a less-than-ideal search engine. This now makes the "Files" one of the best places to go to search through several years worth of posts.

Anyway, good job Ted !

You could do one for the CZ 52, Carcano, Broomhandle Mauser, M1 Garand, M1 Carbine....I'm certain I could come up with more :)
Do you think it would be better to have a generic search for the SKS that would cover Russian, Romanian, Yugo and Albanian, or a seperate search mask for each? ( I left out Chinese as they are not C&R, but they probably should be included too)

We haven't had much discussion on the so-called Amnesty FALs. I'll look around and see if anything pops. We also don't see much C-III discussion, what w/ Culver, Bigger Hammer, and a few other specialized sites. Again, I'll snoop and see what pops.

Yeah, right now I'm having to recast the search criteria. But you can search for them alphabetically by Title is you like, and get a snootful. I'm working on it.

http://www.cruffler.com/50YearLetterRC1997.pdf

As a C & R, the question about listed v. unlisted firearms, and the 50 year rule frequently has interfered with completing transactions.

I've even had an 01 FFL refuse to transfer a listed gun "...because it is not 50 years old and therefore your C & R is worthless..."

The above link is to an ATF letter ruling from 1997 which clarifies the "50-year rule." It is self-explanatory, I hope you will find it useful.

Special thanks :bow: go to jmonarch for providing the link

and to :bow: www.cruffler.com for hosting it on their website.
