APPLYING FOR C&R
I am going to be applying for my C&R and was wondering what experiences others have had with this process. How long does it really take to recieve it and how easy is it to buy C&R firearms online through say GunBroker etc. Any information or advice would be a big help.

Looking at the above thread, it looks like it took less than a month for my C&R to show up. As for purchases online, I've had nothing but good experiences. While using gunbroker, make sure you PM the seller and confirm they'll ship to MA, before you bid. Some folks just won't ship here... regardless if it's legal or not.

It took about a month for my renewal to come in. Some places will not ship to mass no matter what. Still worth having.

It's like getting a LTC except a thousand times easier.
Mine took a month or so. It's a great feeling ordering a gun online and having the UPS man deliver it to your door.THIS SPACE FOR RENT

I don't know why I haven't done this sooner. So my understanding is if the gun is 50yrs. old then its good to go, thats alot of posibilities! Going to need a bigger safe :)

it's a list only thing.
what's on the list is OK for C&R.
although some guns that are listed but were modified from their original config are disqualified. there are other rules too. read up on paperwork that comes with you C&R.

To be recognized as C&R items, 478.11 specifies that firearms must fall within one of the following categories:
Firearms which were manufactured at least 50 years prior to the current date, but not including replicas of such firearms;
Firearms which are certified by the curator of a municipal, State, or Federal museum which exhibits firearms to be curios or relics of museum interest; and
Any other firearms which derive a substantial part of their monetary value from the fact that they are novel, rare, bizarre, or because of their association with some historical figure, period, or event.
The last time I checked the C&R list I saw several guns that were not yet 50 years old, but they were listed as C&R because of some unique quality.
glockstar, keep in mind that all other state and local laws apply, even if the gun is a C&R. Also, make sure that you keep records of your acquisitions and disposals in the approved format. I believe a search of NES will turn up several threads explaining how to keep the records. It's not that hard, but you need to be aware of the paperwork requirements.

Took me a month to get, cost $30 and I've already saved that in discounts from dealers. You pretty much send an email asking how to Apply for the c&r dealer account and they send you instructions.
I've found I need to ask people on gunbroker prior to bidding on gubbroker and some don't want to deal with ma and insist in an 01ffl only.
