I don't think BATFE publish the C&R list as a firearm becomes C&R. Maybe they do it every few years, five years or maybe decade? Who knows how they do it. I would think that annual publication would better serve the public but no I guess it cost too much to do it annually.

I think most things automatically become C&R after 50 years, even if not added to the official list. You can write to them and ask for an official ruling.

You are correct, from the ATF website (http://www.atf.gov/publications/firearms/curios-relics/):

Firearms automatically attain C&R status when they are 50 years old. Any firearm that is at least 50 years old, and in its original configuration, would qualify as a C&R firearm. It is not necessary for such firearms to be listed in ATF’s C&R list. Therefore, ATF does not generally list firearms in the C&R publication by virtue of their age.

Letter ("N" or maybe "S") & the 1st 4 #'s of the serial number please? You can PM me if you want.

The 29-2 was introduced in 1961 but continued till the 1970's. With a partial SN, hopefully I can pin down an approx. "ship" date.

Crap. You do feel old when your lifetime stash of firearms are turning C&R right before your eyes.

Nothing better than buying an old S&W or a nice Python and bringing it home the same day! I got my '61 Python that way :)

And if you get the C & R/FFL all those guns can be same day "cash & carry" home - kind of like traveling back in time a bit to when those guns were new.
