    DROS every 30 days...

    Any way to get around the 1 handgun every 30 days?
    Let me explain why I ask...

    I purchased a SS Target II Kimber that had hammer follow issues and was auto discharging 1 or 2 more rounds per trigger pull. I sent it back to the factory for repair.
    30 days after purchasing the kimber I purchased a Springfield Armory EMP.
    That same day Kimber calls and says that they are going to replace the frame on my 1911.
    They are shipping it back on Monday. I just DROSed my SA EMP. Sense they replaced the frame on my kimber, it has to come back as a new handgun with a new serial number.

    It is going to have to sit at the FFL for 30 days before I can start the paperwork and do the 10 day waiting period.

    So.....
    Is there any exclusions to the rules for pistols back from repair?!?

    Hmmm, I thought there was an exception for a replacement firearm, but I can't find it....

    Better to ask this over on Calguns. They are more knowledgeable on this sort of thing.

    Are they making a new frame with the same serial number? If so, no problem.

    Sorry I'm no help with your question but I would like to know about the kimber. How would the frame cause the problem? Did kimber explain? Did you ask how they relate. (frame and problem) The only thing I can think of is the disconector hole not drilled in the right spot but to me it dose not jive. If it is the frame I would like to know how.

    Thanks and let us know if you find a solution to the wait.

    Rust? This makes me assume it is a used firearm that an FFL picked up and is reselling.

    Sounds like you're boned. Only way around it is to buy from private parties. Still gotta do the 10-day wait but PPTs are exempt form the 1-a-month purchase rule.

    I bought a Glock and realized it wasn't very good for pistol-whipping. So, I bought a CZ-75B just for those special pistol-whipping situations!
