Hello - I recently saw this ad.....I've been wanting one for some time.
I do re-enactments occassionally, and I see other re-enactors carry these, with the long barrel which naturally looks very wrong.
A friend of mine stated that it was possible to put on a correct GI barrel with the proper $200 tax and papers, and still keep it semi-auto. (The barrel would have to be tapped of course to cycle blanks.) Is this true? Can I get one of these, and have a proper barrel installed by paying this special fee......all while not needing a class III and having it remain a semi-auto?
Any advice is helpful. Thank you.
