View Full Version : DOJ List of Approved Guns Question..

09-02-2006, 9:03 PM
I've found a handgun that I'm interesting in purchasing from a dealer. It's set to fall off the DOJ list of approved guns by 12/31/2006. Let's just assume the mfg. is not going to try to get it re-approved.

What does the dealer do with the gun if he hasn't sold it by the date it goes off the list?

What would be the last day I could legally DROS the gun and what date would I have to pick up the gun as to not have any problems?

the dealer would have to sell the firearm out of state, or possibly return it to the wholesaler.(some have a unsold return policy)

you can dros it on the last day of listing. 12-31-06. you must pick it up no later than 30 days from date of dros. if you miss the 30 day mark the firearm can no longer be dros'ed.

Let's just assume the mfg. is not going to try to get it re-approved.Ordinarily*, handguns do not need to be re-approved (retested); the company which had it tested the first time just keep paying the annual 'fee' :rolleyes: . If they're late, or just get tired of paying, or choose to stop manufacturing the tested model and therefore choose to stop paying the fee, then the gun falls off the list.

*NOT ordinary is a DOJ required retest, e.g. if DOJ suspects the guns sold are not as-tested.
