"What's worse is unless somebody sets him straight from now on every conversion he sells he will want to go through an FFL. "
Hawg that appears to be the case. I got an email from the seller. He's not gonna be shipping in separate containers or anything like that, he'll have to "manufacture" a firearm from the Uberti and the cylinders, put that on paper and sell only to an FFL holder. Ye gods we are often our worst enemy...
I won't be bidding, the nearest FFL holder that will do this for me without charging 15% (or more) is 50 miles one way. I have better things to do with my time and money.
Oh well, back to watching the auctions!
