That would be a "destructive device" according to the 1934 NFA...

(4) The term "destructive device" means--

(A) any explosive, incendiary, or poison gas --

(i) bomb,

(ii) grenade,

(iii) rocket having a propellant charge of more than four ounces,

(iv) missile having an explosive or incendiary charge of more than
one-quarter ounce,

(v) mine, or

(vi) device similar to any of the devices described in the
preceding clauses;

(B) any type of weapon (other than a shotgun or a shotgun shell which
the Secretary finds is generally recognized as particularly suitable
for sporting purposes) by whatever name known which will, or which may
be readily converted to, expel a projectile by the action of an
explosive or other propellant, and which has any barrel with a bore of
more than one-half inch in diameter; and

(C) any combination of parts either designed or intended for use in
converting any device into any destructive device described in
subparagraph (A) or (B) and from which a destructive device may be
readily assembled.

IIRC, "DDs" are legal in MA (at least I can't find anything in the MA M.G.Ls prohibiting them).

Would require a CLEO sign-off and $200.00 federal tax.

Ammo is about $8.00 per round, and you have to order custom made 20mm Vulcan with a percussion primer, as the military stuff is electrically primed. Compare this to under $2.00 per round fo 50BMG.

Crew served bolt action ?

Woof. The concussion of the Serbu .50 BMG at the pumpkin shoot was enough to rattle the fillings in my teeth. [thinking]

I could just imagine what this puppy could do. [smile]

...with this in the bed of your truck nobody's gonna cut ya off ! [devil2]

They are legal in MA but require both a federal transfer(form 4/$200) and a transfer through a dealer with a license for DDs in MA of which there are only two or three in the state.

You'd be better off with a .50BMG, its cheaper to shoot and can be tranfered by any gun shop.... no $200 tax or CLEO sign off on a federal form.

Does this mean a DD does not require a CLEO sign-off ?

Not that I could afford this particular item but... [devil]

All NFA items require a CLEO sign-off, or failing to get that...

M18) What law enforcement officials’ certifications on an application to transfer or make an NFA weapon are acceptable to ATF? [Back]

As provided by regulations, certifications by the local chief of police, sheriff of the county, head of the State police, or State or local district attorney or prosecutor are acceptable. The regulations also provide that certifications of other officials are appropriate if found in a particular case to be acceptable to the Director. Examples of other officials who have been accepted in specific situations include State attorneys general and judges of State courts having authority to conduct jury trials in felony cases.

[27 CFR 479.63 and 479.85]

There's the incorporation option, but that should only be considered when all other options have failed.

If your CLEO is recalcitrant, you can also dodge the signoff by forming a
Trust or a Corporation, and transfering the device to that entity instead.

The trust setup is the best deal going for NFA, bar none. Even if you
have a CLEO that signs off, it eliminates the hassle of having to make an
appointment, or waiting for him to get your stuff back, etc....

Frankly in this case I'd rather do 50BMG..... that rifle above really isn't
worth wasting a tax stamp on. (There arent too many things a .50 won't
do... )
