Class 3, NFA and Tax Stamps are all terms I have become very familiar with lately. Ol' Krippp is about to be slinging 8mm Mauser lead downrange at a few hundred rounds per mintue very soon. Something about a "Zipper" comes to mind. I have damn near sold my soul to the devil for the gun I am about to bring home. I have been patiently waiting for all the planets to align as far as the importer and govt. regulations go and I found out yesterday that my purchase and ownership is approved and I will be taking an original MG42 home with me next week. That explains why some of you have seen some of my favorite guns for sale lately. My version is complete with 2 extra barrels, 3 ammo cans, belts and an additional armorers kit complete in it's original case. It was either a Mercedes or this gun lol........I think I have chosen wisely.
