Question: If the model/caliber is listed on the approval list but the only difference is 'Limited edition" or "Anniversary" or "Commerative"... Is it legal to purchase?

Being that color is good enough to keep it from being safe, I'm sure any other model designation will too.

Ask your transfer FFL. Regardless the responses here, only his opinion matters.

True that, lots of stories of FFLs who have let in non rostered guns unintentionally.

I agree that FFL have failed and let in non-roster guns - I wouldn't sleep safe at night knowing I bought a non-roster gun even if the FFL said it's ok - He's breaking the current law -

ETA - The roster in it's current form is not open to interpretation -

Some "special" firearms are curios FIREARMS CURIOS OR RELICS LIST (http://www.atf.gov/firearms/curios/index.htm)

Don't mean to hijack the thread but what about handguns that are 50+
years old? Pete

If it's 50 year/ plus in actual age and not when it first was produced it's a C&R and not subject to the list.
