Does anyone know if the National Firearms Musuem would display a gun on a loan basis? All I can find is info on tax deductable donations.
Reach out to DirectAction, he can help make an intro to Phil S, one of the curators of the NFM. Will it fit into one of the existing displays or is it a new category?

Since aformentioned item is twice rarer than hens testicles, said firearm is still on the bottom of said lake bed.....maybe someday it can be dug up.
Call, maybe said item can be put out where the world can see it. At least you'll know prior to it being cut up.
I doubt they would want to cut this up...of the 155 case hardeded model 94s there were only 16 Delux versions. Ours is one of the 16.
The firearms museum here at work (VMI) takes loaners. If you want to explore that route vs the NFM, IM me.
