So did anyone here get caught up in this mess?

Apparently, a MG maker from Arizona got the idea that he could buy MAC -10's, cut the manufacturer's name and SN off the gun, then weld it into a new made 1919, and voila, you have a registered 1919. Now the feds have filed fraud charges on him, and a number of MG dealers from Maryland, see here:

Apparently the ATF is collecting the guns, even some that have transferred several years ago, as their interpetation is that the new guns are post -86 dealer samples, not transferable, and that the transferable guns have been destroyed by the process of cutting them apart. They are not taking them if you are a dealer, as you can have a post - 86 sample if you are one, it just destroyed the value of the gun.

I hope no-one here is caught up in this? There are a lot more guns than just 1919's involved. Word is that there's a number of different higher value transferables involved, including even a MAG 58. Don't know if any MG42's or 34's are in this yet. :puk:

These guys destroyed not just a bunch of Macs, but also a Jap type 100 in 8mm Nambu. Ouch. Those are sort of rare to chop up! :shock:

Obviously it was all about money. Let's see how much it takes to keep them out of jail.
