OK for those of you who don't know who he is, he is the inventor of the floating chamber, and the short-stroke tappet gas piston system as well as several other firearm designs, weapons such as the M1 carbine, Colt ACE .22 LR and the Remington 50 12 gauge.
But he was convicted of 2nd degree murder? Thatís a felony meaning under federal law he wouldnít be allowed to even touch a gun after 1934. I know that he was given an early parole in 1931 but was his conviction over turned or did the government add in a grandfather clause, or just look the other way? I am thinking that there must have been a grandfather clause in there somewhere but after reading the NFA rules I canít find one. So how did he do it?
What I say is my is only my PERSONAL opinion
