    That's always the best route, due diligence has its own merit.

    I would not classify CNY as too liberal. Meaning anti weapons.
    But, certainly not anything goes.

    Quite honestly, the ATF guy made no reference to my area, and never inquired about my license level or status.

    I’m surprised he got as far as he did. I don’t know what part of NY he is in but also mentioned a CC permit which aren’t easy to get and may also have helped play a roll in getting through the red tape.

    He can answer more correctly but there should have been no need federally to do anything. Nothing illegal about an homemade firearm as long as you are not manufacturing them. Even serial numbers don’t have to be on them but it is recommended at the very least to report it if stolen. Federally there is still some of the NFA laws you need to follow though, and if what you made falls into that you would need the tax stamp and then have a serial on it.

    Most of what he had to go through was because of the BS laws in NY. Like stated above, none of what he went through is an issue or needed in other states.

    Apart from the total ban on pistols in the UK, every gun made here has to be proof tested and marked at a testing house. There are testing houses at London and Birmingham, I believe.

    To be clear, I did not have to register it with the ATF first.

    Nice workmanship as always Sid. I've always been curious about the steps required in Canada to do the same (not a pistol), but never curious enough to start down the slippery slope. Would love to make a couple matched heirloom 22's for the family one day, but have no idea of the steps involved up here, or if it's even possible. Cheers, thanks for sharing.

    I'm assuming you had to register it with ATF first, then go through the process for NY?
