from the internet..so you can just advertise and sell.
Are background checks required on 'private' gun sales? Partial
Colorado - No state requirement that criminal background checks be done on people buying firearms through newspaper, internet or other advertisements or "on the street." Criminal background checks are only required if the buyer goes to a federally-licensed gun store or purchases a firearm at a recognized gun show. Aside from gun shows, all "private" sales between individuals are not subject to the background check. Also see: Gun Shows.

once you find a buyer, you could use a local gun shop as the intermediary. would cost a few bucks, but might be worth it for your peace of mind.
you would meet the "buyer" at the shop, transfer the gun from yourself to the shop, and then they sell it to him.
might as well ask your local shops what they'll give you for the gun first.
Gotta say, I'm a little disappointed.
sell it face to face and require a ccw permit and drivers license for sale , now you know at least the person who bought it passed a background check to get their ccw permit .
I like this idea.
According to the employee behind the counter, it was ATP gun shop, Summerville SC. He received a call from a CSM or some other manager at a WM store about 15 miles away, letting them know they were on their way to his store to make a buy...and the guy was at the counter trying to buy all their ammo while he was on the phone. The WM employee knew for a fact it was an ATP employee. The WM employee refused the sale.
ATP will never again get my business. Neither will Cheaper Than Dirt...
I know for a fact ATP did it in 2008. I purchased 3 boxes of Hornady self defense ammo for my Browning HP. They didn't even pull off the Wal Mart price sticker. Just covered it up with their own sticker for an additional few $.
EDIT: From what I have found, the 3 box limit is widespread, not due specifically to the actions of the local gun store mentioned in my post above. Still, the actions of ATP are no less underhanded.
nope it was very clear, def a garand, full stock and very distinctive forend, BAR totally different. could you pull the trigger fast enough on an M1 to LOOK like its full auto? selective fire T20 came out in 1944, did any see service?
It's possible to bump fire any semi-auto weapon to simulate full auto fire. It's all in the way the gun is held so it oscillates back and forth and trips the trigger as it comes forward out of recoil. The only other way one could get full auto would be to do a bit of unauthorized work on the trigger assembly. There were probably enough Garands lying around that someone could swipe a second trigger assembly and modify it, then swap back and forth.
I seriously doubt that any experimental T series weapons ever made it into the war. General Hatcher in his books never mentioned it, and he was the one who would have known and authorized it.
In the end, the M14 was uncontrollable in full auto, even with the straight line stock they came up with. The BAR was quite a bit heavier and easier to control. I had the opportunity to fire one full auto in the service once.
Anybody bought a new Marlin 336 in the last few months? Lot's of chatter about the quality going to hell after the Remington buyout. I looked at a 336W at Dicks the other day and the fit and finish of the wood and metal didn't look to bad to me. I guess they have been making improvements. The action did seem stiff, but not rough. Of course I wasn't able to cycle rounds through it.
Any personal experience with a recent purchase out there?
I picked up another new toy this weekend....
I got a little bit more ammoes too.
That shit's hard to come by these days, ya know.
Maybe have a dealer sell it for you, so that the purchaser goes through the NICS background check? A local shop sells guns and charges either 10 or 15% commission, so that's better than simply selling to a dealer outright.
Unless you live in NY from what I understand.
The local shop just got a Baer in. Its the first one I've seen in person. Lots of Browns, Nighthawks and Wilsons in the area but not Baers. How do you like it?
What is involved in qualifying for a CMP status to acquire a Garand?
Pretty straightforward. You need:
Proof of citizenship (i.e. birth certificate)
Membership of an affiliated club (local or national org)
Proof of firearms training (ex: hunter safety)
"Hardest" part is the affiliated club membership. This can be a national org such as Garand Collectors Assoc, Glock Shooting Sports Assoc. Sometimes local ranges and clubs are too. Find a CMP Affiliated Club!
Submit notarized paperwork and payment, the green rifle case will show up. You can attach a post it note if you're looking for something specific and the CMP crew will do their best, but generally it's luck of the draw. Another option is to visit one of their stores in person, or have someone visit and pick one out for you. Several folks on the CMP forums will do this for a nominal fee ($25-60), and this allows you to really fine tune your rifle. I've done this and was very happy with the result.
