    There is also a wee proplem with that forward grip as well.  1 hand- pistol.  2 hands- short barreled rifle.

    Actually says "folding stock," in the description.

    Nice firearm though.

    Extreme NE TN/W NC ya'll. 😁

    I didn't read anywhere in the listing where he claims it is a brace. "Tactical CZ scorpion folding stock", nothing misleading there, although it is a SBR and not a pistol. The way to sell it would be to remove all of the SBR accouterments and add the wording All NFA Rules Apply. At $1600 it is actually a good deal. Buy it, register it on a Form 1 and then shoot it as a pistol until the tax stamp arrives.

    He Has it listed as a semi auto pistol, not under NFA items.

    Yes, he needs to take that stock off ASAP.

    I messaged him. Will see what he says.

    Hey Bud,
    Unless this CZ of yours is registered as a NFA SBR you currently have an illegal gun. You cant legally put a stock and forward grip on a pistol without doing a Form 1 with the ATF.  If I were you, I'd take this auction down, take the stock and foregrip off, take a picture of it with those items off to the side and relist it.
    Right now you're looking at trouble.
    Regards,

    His response:
    This item is solely sold as a pistol and will be shipped that way. The vertical grip and stock will be shipped separately. It is up to buyer to have form 1 to apply furniture. I have confirmed this with the atf since this gun has always been pistol. Thank you for your concern

    Men in cheap suits: “Where’d you get this gun, boy?”

    Buyer: “ I bought it from Raidernationjustwin in Edmunds, Washington.”

    Yep. 

    MiCS: Oh you did, did you?
    Buyer: Yep, I was looking for a pistol, and he said this was a pistol.

    He's doing it right with the shipping, but in the meantime the firearm shown in the listing is a SBR, or without the stock and only the vertical hand grip, it is Any Other Weapon. The Thompson Center court case ruled that simply possessing  a pistol and a shoulder stock does not automatically mean that the stock will be used to manufacture a SBR. Well, he has proven he intended to do just that.

    Dan, I would waste any more time on him. It's a lost cause.

    I had a local guy trying to sell me a couple of AR's recently. He sent me a pic of em and one was a generic pistol build but the other was a SBR. Asked em if he had a stamp for the SBR and he had no clue what that meant. Explained to him how without one that rifle was very illegal. His response was "eff em". So I passed on that deal.

    Of course, the key is to NOT think about it.

    If you are the government, do what you want - and don't think about it.

    If you are "The People", do what they say - and don't think about it.
  • GrasshopperGrasshopper Member Posts: 14,204 ✭✭✭
    Yes, it is silly. BB guns requiring an FFL, a pistol has a grip and stock on it, that's a SBR, or whatever. Yes, the BATF has many laws that really don't make any sense. Will they ever be changed, most likely not because not enough people who care to make a noise or I should say politicians. After all the world is being wiped out by covid and global warming or heating, something  like that.
  • chmechme Member Posts: 419 ✭✭✭
    There are those that THINK they decided "I don't like that law- I'll just ignore it."  Unless I share DNA with that person, if they are persistent in their stupidity, it is NOT my job to mend their ways for them.  
    Someone like the seller- I would tell him once, as a courtesy to any fellow human.  "Watch your step- there's a loose board on the stairs."  Now- if he wants to argue that it does not look all that loose, and he does not see a good reason that steps are this high and not that high, and nobody tells HIM what to watch.... my response is "Have a great day"- and move on down the road.  

    But when the guys in the cheap suits show up and arrest him, using his OWN photos as evidence, I WILL reserve the right to laugh at his dumb *.

    You can tell a kid not to touch the stove because it's hot, they never really believe you until they get burned.... some lessons just need to be learned on your own.
  • scooterdriverscooterdriver Member Posts: 537 ✭✭✭
    NR buyer (registered on 9/9/2020...when he placed his first bid for this listing) hit the BuyNow! for $2100. Luck to both parties.
  • Ricci.WrightRicci.Wright Member Posts: 1,217 ✭✭✭
    Damn!! he could have bought a case of 9mm ammo for that. 😁😁

    Removing the stock doesn't quite fix things - constructive possession applies federally re SBR.  If he removes the forward grip, tosses the stock and gets a brace he'd be OK.  Simple to correct, hopefully.
  • shootuadealshootuadeal Member Posts: 4,660 ✭✭✭

    Constructive possession is a myth but non of that matters anyway as he put pictures of an illegal sbr on a public site for all to see.

    Like Mark stated, he provided the only evidence they would need with his pictures.

    On the subject of myths: there is a misconception that a Class 3 dealer is allowed to purchase unregistered NFA weapons (such as the CZ) or to register NFA weapons tax free. This is incorrect. The Class 3 allows me to purchase registered NFA weapons without paying the $200 tax, but what we were looking at was an unregistered SBR. No one, no matter their FFL/SOT, could have legally purchased that firearm. Had it been knocked down (no stock and no vertical front grip) then yes, the buyer could have filed a Form 1, paid the $200 "making tax", had it properly registered and then assemble it.

    When it comes to building/making a NFA weapon (other than a MG, which is prohibited), as a dealer I am in no better shape than the rest of you guys. A Class 2 Manufacturer can make a NFA weapon without paying the $200 tax, but when I build a SBR AR I have to pony up the same $200 as everyone else. It is only when a purchase a registered NFA weapon for my business inventory that I'm "tax free." Later, if I decide to keep that "Tax free" weapon as my own...cut a check to the BATF for $200.

    For business transactions only, and not for your personal collection??

    When I want to acquire a registered NFA weapon, let's say a silencer, from another Class 3 dealer we use a Form 3: the tax exempt transfer and registration to a Special Occupational Tax Payer (SOT). There is no $200 tax involved in dealer-dealer transfers because we each pay a $500 yearly SOT. It also take just 2 days for the ATF to approve a From 3. If I later decide that I want the silencer for myself, then I have to file Form 4: the tax paid of an NFA firearm. This is the same form that a non licensee would use, and the $200 tax must be paid. When it comes to manufacturing a NFA weapon, if I want to build (say) a SBR AR, I have to file a Form 1 and pay the $200 tax, just like everyone else. Only a Class 2 Manufacturer may build NFA firearms without paying the tax. Regulations for manufacturing NFA's weapons are a LOT more involved than the regs for selling them. 

    Bottom line: there are no NFA weapons which are actually tax free. It's tax deferred at best.
