Three months ago, I assisted a friend in researching his Trapper rifle, and have it removed from the NFA list. I looked up the instructions for sending the rifle to the NFA office in West Virginia, and sent it along with a copy of my FFL and a prepaid return label. After months of not hearing from them, I received a letter stating that the owner is not the same as the registered owner. Therefore, the rifle would not be returned. My friend purchased this piece along with other Winchester rifles from a estate in the early eighties and at this time, can't remember the name of the estate. Has anyone on this forum experienced something like this and if so, do we have avenue to maybe appeal? Thanks in advance for any insights.

I'll never understand how Your government can confiscate Your legally acquired private property like that, without any recourse. No wonder there s so many "illegal" guns floating around, 'eh. There has to be a better way.

Regarding any Winchester SBR that is over 50 years old and has never been registered/cleared as an NFA or C and R, does it have to be submitted for C and R status before being submitted to BATFE for evaluation as an NFA?
Read a previous post where an individual acquired/purchased such a configuration with no pedigree as referenced above and submitted for NFA. It was then retained by BATFE as it had not been cleared as a C and R and obviously not been previously registered and cleared as an NFA?
Assumed any SBR over 50 years old automatically was granted C and R status? Subsequently, one had to submit to BAFFE for NFA evaluation.
My question therefore is, any SBR that has no history of C and R status if not automatically granted and obviously has no NFA or registered owner status, what is the proper procedure for getting it cleared without BATFE automatically keeping it as occurred to the individual noted previously on this forum?
Appreciate the insight and proper procedure(s) for NFA status?
