I recently was asked about the purchasing of a class III weapon, a fully auto AK-47. I know about the requirements to purchase from any person or vendor.... Now for the hard part: The "owner" was fully licensed and all that, but he has died, and now the son has the weapon. The son is trying to sell the weapon, and I expect there to be some problems in that...besides, he only wants $150.00 and the serial numbers were verified, it was registered to his father as a class III ( precautionary check!). I do not want to buy it, as I have no need for this AK. Semi yes, full auto, no. What does the son have to do to get legal posession of that weapon? I mean, if he has no class III permit, and is in posession...YIKES!!! But now, he is in posession, and it's all a mess to me! As I understand it, the weapon has to be surrendered to the BATFE? Hmmmmmm... Let's see, if you try to send it to them, you are in trouble, if you have it you are in trouble, you can't legally sell it.... Man what a nightmare!
