    FFL needed for M1 Carbine w. Lug

    I'm thinking of buying a an M1 Carbine (WWII Inland) from Classic. They come with a bayonet lug, but because they are 50+ years old are NY legal. I know some FFL's are reluctant for some reason under this exception to the Safe Act. Anybody have a lead on an enlightened FFL who will transfer?

      No!
      Don't pull anything!
      If it's a US Issue we can prove its over 50 years old. You don't need to do anything. You can absolutely have a bayo lug on a US Carbine.
      20-round mags are a problem because you can't prove their age, so don't have them shipped in.
      Ship it to Karp's if you are near East Northport.

    I would check with Bruce at Hunters Essentials.

      Years ago I would have suggested Campsite but with staff changes I don’t know.

        If I recall correctly they have to be registered if they have the bayo lug. Damn shame.

        You can always play M1 Carbine Mohel and go that route 🔽

        Barrel Band, Type 1, without Bayonet Lug, M1 Carbine
        Price: $19.95
        Part #: FA-C-004
        In Stock
        Quantity:
        This is a quality reproduction of an impossible-to-find part, essential for that early carbine restoration, or just that early carbine "look."

        After WWII, the Ordnance Department ordered that all "Type 1" barrel bands and flip sights be replaced with barrel bands with bayonet lugs and adjustable sights.
        Those original parts were discarded, which makes them impossible to find today! Here's your chance to get one nearly indistinguishable from the original.

          That’s what I did but it was before the registration deadline. The key holding on the front sight was a stubborn SOB. I bought replacements. It worked.

          At least the Mohel won't cut the barrel shorter...

        I would probably take it off, using either the FFL or myself.

          It’s doable but the ideal is to get it done beforehand to avoid registration. I bought removal tools from
          Matrixprecisionparts.com and get some Kroil

        Yes the law says you are supposed to register it, but that is not a requirement of the transfer or a responsibility of the FFL.
        You can bring the US Carbine 30 cal into any FFL, and certainly we would do the transfer if your closest shop will not do it.

        The only time this is an issue is when you buy one of the several 1970s or 1980s versions that we can't guarantee the age of. For example, the Universal brand which was made until the 1980s.
