I was alive for the amnesty, but all the automatic weapons I was using came on a DA Form 3749. There was a provision for GI's who were overseas during the amnesty period, but I did not know about it then. I have little doubt the narrow window was intentional. Those that missed the deadline, for whatever reason, became forever contraband.

The paperwork and auction description for the M16 appeared to have a full serial number, yet Ian showed that it had been ground off. How did they arrive at a full number?

Never mind - I do see a faint number visible on the receiver.
