I take it it's nearly impossible to get a firearm back to the states from overseas if you're deployed?

It has to be from the 1800's and fall under the curio rule. The rules are ridiculous and are very difficult to navigate

It's almost impossible to being stuff back for display in the unit that will be "owned" by the military

That's too bad. Yeah, I knew about the whole curio rule but that's garbage. So many AK's out there! haha

C&R items, as a rule of thumb, are anything 50 years or older or something that was petitioned to be put on the C&R list. Generally the exceptions are made because it holds significant collectors value or the origin country doesn't really exist anymore (Yuguoslavia for example).

Anything made up to 1898 is not considered a firearm by the ATF. Muzzle loaders are not considered firearms by the ATF.

The real ***** of the thing you're getting at are importation laws. Only firearms that fall under the categories of C&R or Sporter can be imported. Anything foreign in origin falling under the Sporter category is subject to some bull**** "points system" to qualify for importation. For example, certain models of Glocks are imported with goofy adjustable target sights to meet the points requirement. They are then swapped out and configured in what you are familiar with when they arrive at Glock's USA HQ.

The thing with semi-auto AK varients, and similar firearms, is they're designated as "assault weapons." These do not qualify to be imported in their native configuration because of how they look/function. They're brought in as a "sporter" configuration (no pistol grips, bayo lugs, adjustable/folding stocks, must have 10 round magazine capacity or less, etc etc). They're then converted into native attire and allowed to accept a standard magazine. But once that is done they're subject to 922R compliance which now then requires a minimum of 10 or more qualifying US components be utilized in its construction.

Anything that falls under the 1936 NFA is only importable for sale to .GOV/LEO. The only way an "AK" makes it into this country is having the components stripped and imported w/o a receiver as a "parts kit" (which is subjet to 922r upon building) or you buy something from Arsenal who just imports Saiga Sporters and converts them (also subject to 922R).

....But you live in MA so it's not like you really get to own firearms anyway.

You have to go to a private range in the sticks here if you want to have any fun. Or the far out in the swamp.
