    So a firearm like the one described in the OP could not be deactivated by welding and then put on a form 5 to allow the ower to keep it (for sentimental purposes) without having to destroy it?

    I don't think so. The procedure you're describing, when done to DEWAT a machine gun back in the old days, still required the firearm to be registered in the NFA upon bring-back as it still contained the frame or receiver of a machine gun.

    The only time the feds have ever allowed contraband NFA items to be registered (DEWAT or otherwise) was during the 1968 amnesty.

    I believe the correct word is "sawn off"

    If you live in the UK, Ireland, Australia, or New Zealand, but here we use "sawed off". Or at least some folks do. I just call them SBS's or short barreled shotguns.

    Words [and usually hyphenated], and either "sawed" and "sawn" are acceptable as used here.

    Correct words would be 'what barrel?'

    But, again, the terms sawn-off and sawed-off are slang terms and do not appear in the code.

    And, a sawed-off shotgun might be perfectly legal depending on how much was sawed off. It is not illegal to saw off a shotgun unless you saw off too much.

    And while we are at it, its not a suppressor, it is a silencer.

    Slang is OK unless you are actually trying to discuss the legal aspects of the NFA.

    If Miller's attorney would have just shown up for his court case, this all might be moot!!

    There are only 3 colors, 10 digits, and 7 notes; it's how we arrange them that is important.
