I finally got my YHM 7.62x39 AR back from the gunsmith and need to register it. Might be dumb questions, but I'd rather be safe than sorry.

I went to the Massachusetts MIRCS website and chose "registration" since it seemed like the best fit for this situation. A couple screens in it asked for "seller" information. Since I have no seller information do I simply leave these section blank and move on?

Thanks.

Yes, leave it blank.

ETA: I never did this on Efa10. But this was the procedure for the paper copy so I would do the same.

So let's kick the bees nest and ask, "What happens if you don't register your home built AR in MA?" - is there any way for anyone to figure this out? I assume there must be - why else would anyone bother. Just asking because I'm curious to know how this system works. Compliance with the law is always the way to go.

I guess the same would go for anyone who moves into MASS from a free state and has firearms?

Absolutely nothing happens. If you forget and 6 years have elapsed since you built the gun, and you can document that somehow, don't even bother registering it, because the statute of limitations has expired. [laugh]

I guess I don't understand how they expect the law to be followed if enforcement isn't feasible. Presuming one were to be pulled over en route to the range - so long as the firearm had a serial number and you are authorized to carry the firearm, it seems unlikely, if even possible, the authorities would pull up a registry of firearms.

As with most of our gun laws, the only way they would ever be enforced is if you were in some sort of trouble involving a search warrant, and the authorities are going through your crap with a fine tooth comb. This is the only way that anyone would discover, for example, a 922r compliance problem, a non-pinned muzzle brake, a post ban magazine, etc...

If you are pulled over on the way to the range, you should not be letting anyone search your car and scrutinize your firearms.
