I consider the 14 million guns C&R. They're 50 years old by calendar year of manufacture, which is as precise as the law says you need to be. Personal opinion, not official SKS Files guidance.

If the 14mil was granted status using the modern dating theory, then there is argument enough that 1969 d.o.m. would qualify for C&R.

However the 1.5mill gun indicates that the modern theory was NOT used.

In fact the arrival of both 14th and 15th year guns carries the suggestion that NEITHER dating method was used. This C&R batch may have come through on a Curio Request.

Yeah, I was just commenting generally that I would accept a 14 million on my C&R license and list it in my FFL-03 book.

Maybe the they took the long way around this time, and submitted a request on historical appeal.

One can only wonder if this will open the floodgates for all standard configuration carbines?

And if they find them later or a non /26\

It could be like the last batch, the ATF will flag and sequester certain ones for destruction because they don't meet requirements.

Kinda where collectors can be their own worse enemy.... posting photos and hashing out the dates,"Oh look I got a '71 model", it's a "insert your favorite infernal word here" bat1. Guess people don't think the ATF keeps tabs on forums such as this, that Facebook thang, Twatter and and other social media crap, they don't have the man power to examine every rifle and everything online could give them a general consensus of whats being sold at retail. Then they can tell the retailer/importer, any above serial numbers above BR549 needs to be sequestered/set aside and we, the ATF will take control of them.

How and where did they figure out the last batch had Russians in the batch? an importer or retailer aint going to say anything, thats cash money waiting for a buyer, sell'em as fast as possible, make as much as possible... The ATF ain't going to reimburse them if snatched up due to a legal issue, it's give us the rifles or face legal repercussions for selling weapon grade contraband and join us at Club Fed, where we offer free cable TV, exercise facilities and 3 hots and a cot!!

One has to remember... weapons like the Cz.82 and some Yugo M59/66s are from the 80's and C&R. There is the other side, Curio.. that could meet the requirements.

Yep. P32 may have found proof of this. He seems to have located a 14mil serial in Classic's un-crating video:

The photo is kinda blurry, and the 7's appear to be with serif (thought they were sans-serif by 12th or 13th year, but who knows?).


My logic followed the path of least resistance for the importers-- which seems like it would be to go with the already method already approved by the BATF 56+millions and /26\ only-- inaccurate as it may be.

Maybe the they took the long way around this time, and submitted a curio request on historical appeal.

If true, one can only wonder if this will open the floodgates for all standard configuration carbines?

I'm guessing there will be no 14th year guns.

However, if there are,  wouldn't his mean that C&R was granted on some basis other than the 50 year requirement?

Nice score!

It's none of my business, but did it bash the wallet a lot to pick that one up?

Thanks!  No, they only mentioned that it didn't have import marks. I was happy to win it for $423 with the fees added.


Well played!

OK, thanks. I missed out on this one. Allegedly in great shape. The guy wouldn't meet me a half hour later because I was at work. So no biggie. I'm sure I'll see another in the future.
