well i have some ?'s. I am gonna be 18 in a few months and its time to buy a rifle in my own name. i was wondering if i can get them at the age of 18 and what kind of paperwork and classes i will have to go through to get a rifle. i also heard a rumor that 50bmg's are not all the way banned in CA. as in you can still get bolt action rifles. is all of this true?
@ 18 most states will allow you to buy rifles. you will have to pass a back ground check to purchase the gun. You will need to check the ATF website for the 50 cal stuff....I know they are legal here we have shooting clubs for them out here
most models are, except for the yugoslavian versions with the gernade lauchers, there is a version of the yugoslavian, the M59 that does not have a gernade laucher, that is legal. InterOrdnance has unissued condition yugoslavian M59/66 (gernade laucher varient) for $150, and they will weld a cover over the gernade laucher upon request to make it california legal. I do not know if this actually makes it california legal, because the laucher is still there, but they are selling them, and people are buying them. A while back they were selling the same condition ones for 200, I have seen a few, and they are truely in Like New condition, possibly rearsenaled. If you get one, be prepared to remove about 8 pounds of cosmoline.
