C&R 1911s

I have an old 1949 1911 .38 Super up for sale and a potential buyer wants to know if it falls under "C&R". Yes, the pistol is over 50 years old. I put it up on GB and not sure how to answer this question. I was simply going to take it to my local gun shop and have him transfer it to the buyer's FFL. Is there another option? Thank you!

Think the buyer is just trying to pay less by avoiding transfer fees? Do I have to use an FFL since it's 50 years+ old? Thanks!

If your buyer has a C&R license and he can provide you a copy of it, you can ship it directly to his address and save him transfer cost.

To deal that way, yes he does need to have a C&R license. Yes he will have to send you an ink signed copy. The C&R FFL is an FFL from the Government to collect older non modern arms that are at least 50 years old or on the C&R list. With his license he just can't conduct a retail for profit business with it.

If you can date the Colt as being made in 1949. It would fall under the C&R and could be sold to him on his license. It will have to go through UPS or FedEx though as a C&R FFL cannot send or receive pistols through the US Mail like a regular FFL can.

I prefer Fedex Residential or Ground, insured. You do not have to declare the contents.

You do have to establish that the gun falls under C&R.

You can check here: http://www.atf.gov/publications/firearms/curios-relics/

Quoting the ATF: "Firearms automatically attain C&R status when they are 50 years old. Any firearm that is at least 50 years old, and in its original configuration, would qualify as a C&R firearm. It is not necessary for such firearms to be listed in ATF’s C&R list. Therefore, ATF does not generally list firearms in the C&R publication by virtue of their age."
