Have a friend who is Leo and came to me about this question since I seem to know more then him about the firearms business, but I don't seem to know this answer.

So my friend has a friend (lol sounds like a fake story) who has a colt m16 that was never registered, he was offered this "m16" but dOesnt know if he can posses it or even transfer to his name. Anyone have any advise on this? Thanks.

the answer is NO, he can't possess it or transfer it into hs name.

No.

And no longwinded explanation, either. Simply no. Treat it as you would a venomous snake. Don't touch. Walk away. Get some distance between you.

No!

I think the friend's friend's friend is committing a felony by having the rifle.

Is the answer no because it was never registered? Or just the whole fact that it's an m16?

It's a real m16 as far as I know. His friend is an old vet that has all kinds stuff.

forget that you know anything about it and tell your friend that unless he wants a paid trip to club fed, forget it.

Think carefully for a minute about what you posted. This is 2011, an M16 is a NFA item which requires you pay $200 for the tax stamp. I hope your friend of a friend lives in the correct jurisdiction to possess such an item. Without paying the tax you earn a new life, home, and friends for the next 10 years.

The poster could be incorrectly posting the information on the described firearm or misstating the facts.

The M-16 was a select fire weapon with three (3) round burst. Minus the M16A3/A4 which is fully automatic.

I'd stay away from it. For your sake don't get associated with it nor conspire to help him get it.

Food for thought.

Ok so easy answer would be no. I'm not even sure on the weapon in question. I was just relaying what he said to me. Thanks to all for your quick help. That's why I love this forum. Thanks

Just a few more centuries and maybe it could be had legally in California. :36:
Need to be very cautious whenever posting this online as you never know who could be reading it. I completely understand coming to a forum to ask a question like this, and I'm not accusing you or your friend of foul play, but people can and have gotten into legal trouble in the past from posting in an open forum. I hope you and your friend pop smoke while you can and not play with fire...no matter how much fun that fire may be.

Right about the same time that vaporizer guns become old news.
