It was probably another dealer who was going out of business. Class 3's can have em with a demo letter from a Cleo. When they get rid of the license they have to get rid of the gun.

American Guns' shop in Colorado has a full maker's Type 7 (10? not sure which) FFL license so they're buying it as a demo or on behalf of an LE agency.

If the weapon is up for sale due to disposal of license, the purchasing C2/C3 is not required to have a demo letter.

Huh. I didn't know that. So if we're both c3 dealers and I wanna buy a post sample mg from you, I have to have a demo letter. But if you're going out of business, I can buy the same exact post sample mg without a demo letter?

That makes sense. If the government is going to force you to sell/trade/give away all your post samples at the sunset of your license, they have to be accommodating with the rules.

NOT correct.
Only 07/02 manufactures can aquire post MG's from SOT's
not renewing their tax stamp. A C3 still needs a demo letter.

<ding ding> hk21man is correct! But even with that tidy little bit of information, there are a *lot* of new contractors helping out the examiners and they may not be aware of this little gem. If you can get a love letter... get it. Tends to make things much easier...

Perhaps the ruling has changed. I know of several C3's that acquired post-samples without demo letters from other C3 dealers that were terminating their licenses.

Like I said... The examiners might not necessarily know what is what. Wouldn't be the first time with a government type...!
