US. govt. BATF C&R Regulations
Collectors in the US: If you buy at least one (1) collectible (50 years+ old) gun a year, you should seriously consider obtaining a Collector of Curios & Relics (C&R) License. Also called 'Type 03 FFL'.
This allows you to buy/receive collectible guns directly, without going through a transfer dealer. This saves you at least a $20 dealer fee per transaction. The license will cost you $10 per year.
