I don't understand how the list was composed.  Is there a certain date, e.g. 40 years old?

I don't see how anyone could understand the BATF or their list.

I am not an expert.  I heard they did revise the list to where ALL of the garands were covered by the list instead all of them except the last year or two.

I'd want to see that from the BATF though.<G>

Here is the word from the BATF web site.  It contains the list of C&R firearms, which are only a small part of the firearms that are C&R.  As a general rule, all firearms that are over 50 years old are automatically C&R.  Most C&R firearms are not listed.  The definitions for what makes a firearm a C&R are in the first section of the list.

Usually fifty years or older or if they have collectors interest, you can also submit a weapon w/ corresponding documentation for consideration to the ATF. I have two M1s, one made in '45 the other in '55. Some of the albanian sks's were made in the sixties and seventies but they qualify as C&R due to rarity and uniqueness.  I believe the key is the receiver age.  The finns made some of their M39's on antique receivers from russian 1891 Mosin-Nagant rifles, even though the top of the receiver is marked w/ the year the rifle was converted the underside of the receiver tang is usually marked w/ the original build date.  These rifles would be considered an antique since the receiver was made on or before the year 1898 even though the top of the receiver might have been marked say, 1941. Good luck on all your searches.
