Question though. I did not think 1911's, no matter how old, were transferable in Mass? If you have a C&R you're all set...can buy them all day long. If not, I think your gunsmith may have sold you a non-transferable pistol. I may be wrong. You see many Lugers and 1911a1's at shows that will say "sold only to C&R holders" for that reason.
It's my understanding that anyone with a Class A Large Capacity license can own one in Massachusetts providing it is "pre ban". I filled out all the proper paperwork and registered this one with the state. Four Seasons Firearms in Woburn usually has a couple for sale in their "used guns" section with no conditions. There is a M1911A1 listed for sale there now...$2099.99...Ouch!! Perhaps the ones for C&R holders were not in the state prior to the '94 date. I really doubt that Four Seasons or a gun smith would be risking their livelihood by selling an illegal firearm.
