Certainly not grandma's Rohm revolver:

"A buddy was helping a friend remove a workbench from his newly acquired house. The top was too heavy to transport in one piece so they tore it apart. I'll let the pics speak for themselves."

Looks like christmas came earlier for someone...
Hopefully he lives in a state that allows him to keep them.
I love how they were wrapped in blue jeans.

That's crazy. I guessing there's going to be alot of people are going to start tearing up their basements.

I do not have log in on that site but that 22lr suppressed is not a rugar that someone said. It is a colt huntsman or woodsman. I would have to look at it in person to tell. I am pretty positive it is a huntsman.

Based on looks I am doubting the machine guns are registered pre 86. They might be but I would need to see them in person as well.

Something like this happens you call the BATFE ASAP.

Based upon the pics and accompanying articles (indicating numerous full auto (presumably unregistered) weapons) it looks like a bunch of federal felonies to me.)

I swear it said he called the authorities so he did nothing wrong, as long as he did do that.

I wouldn't have found anything and posted it online. Just saying, some secrets are best kept secret.

If this happens can you legally keep this finds?

Nope, the State does not like well armed Prols.

Anything not registered in prior to the end of registration is.. well slag.

Odd, that is what I was thinking. Gas Axe the receivers etc and sell the 'parts kits'.

Then go Christmas shopping for self.....

I agree... beautiful finds and DUMBASS for POSTING ONLINE! have to love this generation of 'i show EVERYTHING TO EVERYONE" Hell i would see nothing but blue jeans.......;)

I would be doing the jig but I wonder how could a previous house owner forget their stuff???

Only things I see potentially illegal are the supressor(in certain states) and the sten(ditto), everything else is GTG-in(most of) the USA, not PRK......

I would tear that house apart
god only knows what else is in there
Im thinking organized crime or IRA, something along these lines
those forsure arent grandpa's war trophies

I agree cut the receivers and rebuild them legally and either keep or sell

why would someone post these online?

because its fake...

just like all the stories about the little old lady who has a 1969 mint condition ________ car in her garage she bought it for her son who was off to nam and never came back.... Its every gun nuts fantasy to "find" a treasure trove of automatic weapons valued at about $80K (by those pics).

The fact the posted the pics tells me its fake.

like pch's chest of carbines?

11-23-2011, 11:28 PM
why would someone post these online?

because it's a bogus story....anyone with half a brain would STFU about it. If it were real we'd hear about a guy who got picked up by the ATF for trying to keep a bunch of NFA guns he found.

some people can only feel cool when they lie about things on the internet...

PS. i'm starting a trust fund for an orphan kid with liver cancer who just wants to go to space camp before he dies so he can see his long lost father who is the blind janitor....let me know how much you can donate and i'll send you paypal info

nice collection , but i am smelling a lil b.s. in the story due to this
According to the BATFE they must be turned over for thirty days at which point he can file for the tax stamp per item and take possession. no legal NFA weapons would be stored that way so i would bet a buck not on the registry and no way to add them so his 30 and get a stamp is smelly as all get out ... thinking someone is going to get a visit from there friendly alphabet guys
