Hey, I wanted to ask a question about the NFA regarding the recent M14 thread that was locked and figured there were some older members would could help me out. I've read that there was a period where you could register a full auto firearm before the NFA came into effect and whatever criminal history that particular firearm had would be forgiven. So, if you had an M14 with defaced serial numbers, could you not get it registered at this point and perhaps get a new serial number stamped onto it? I've read that people were paranoid about this registry and a lot of people did not register their full autos, which is why transferable ones are so valuable today. I'd be pretty paranoid myself if I had any type of firearm with a defaced serial number, full auto or not. So could that have been the reason why the gentlemen kept it on the down low and did not register it, assuming that his story is the truth? Would they have arrested you on the spot for having a gun with defaced serial numbers?
