I see that LMT has 203's back in stock, will they sell them as Title 1 receivers to the general public? Any other place beside Clyde Armory that I should try?
Link Posted: 1/27/2014 9:52:33 AM EDT
I don't think I've ever seen an LMT sold as just the receiver. I've seen like mr40mm's ones but they are a lot more expensive.
Link Posted: 1/27/2014 12:50:23 PM EDT
Clyde's is the civvie outlet for LMT. They will do a title 1 transfer on just a receiver if you ask them. GROG

How much did it run you? They qouted me "about $1000" but the guy admitted he didn't know much about the 203. Where did you find a barrel?
Link Posted: 1/28/2014 9:32:30 PM EDT
You can find new and used on gunbroker for 150-300 depending on condition. Good luck, GROG

I called clyde's last week. The guy that answered said that they only have the DD and haven't had title 1's for awhile. He was not sure if/when they would get more. I've been looking for a title 1 for a bit now. The search continues.
Link Posted: 1/29/2014 1:19:45 AM EDT
Somebody correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't see why those couldn't be sold as Title I without barrels.

Clydes always has some Colts in stock too but I dont know if they are bare receivers. They run about 50% more and I'm not sure if it's worth it over the LMT.

I spoke with LMT in December about a title 1 receiver, and was told Clyde's has an exclusive contract for them. I called Clyde's and after a phone call back from a different employee than the one I talked to the first time they told me ordering one wouldn't be a problem.

I don't own an M203 yet...but from the ones I have used in the Army and Marine Corps, I can pretty confidently say that I wouldn't pay 50 dollars more for a Colt M203 over an LMT. I guess if I was enamored with having it say "Colt" on the side, but functionally? No way.
Link Posted: 2/1/2014 4:03:56 AM EDT
Saw this thread and it got me curious! I understand that you can get a 203 on a title one transfer but then what can you do with it once you get it? Do people just put a 37mm barrel on it?
Link Posted: 2/1/2014 5:57:44 AM EDT
37mm barrels are a little hard to find right now, but that's one way. The other way is to have no barrel, do your form 1, and put a 40mm barrel on it when you're stamp comes back.

You probably know this, but the reason to do the transfer in a title 1 configuration is because Destructive Device FFLs are kinda scarce.

So if you do a Form 1 on it do you list it as a DD? With it being on a form 1 that would mean it would have to be engraved right? Where would you engrave it?
I apologize for the questions I'm good on SBRs, Cans, and everything else but have never thought about a 203 until I came across this thread.
Link Posted: 2/1/2014 4:56:17 PM EDT
Yup, same as F1 on SBR, Cans, etc.

Wrong, maybe Cobray 37mm flare launchers but not M203 receivers.

So if you do a Form 1 on it do you list it as a DD? Yup.

With it being on a form 1 that would mean it would have to be engraved right? Yup.

Where would you engrave it? 'Barrel, frame or reciever' is what the CFR says.

I just ordered an LMT M203 complete receiver (Title 1) from Clydes yesterday. Maybe you missed them by a day or two?

$1299 plus shipping for the standard mount. They said the rail mounted ones are $1699. I really wanted a rail mounted one...but not for $400 extra.

I ended up calling them back and adding the extra few hundred for the rail mounted. I wanted to be able to put it on my Mk18 clone, so rail mounted really was a must.

Form 1 will go in the mail next week, so hopefully by the time I get back from my upcoming deployment I will have the stamp back.

Isn't that a sexy bitch.

I think what I like most about the rail mounted '203 is the pistol frame they sell... I would have me a pistol frame, and a holster.

I'm actually torn between mounting it on my Mk18 clone and putting it on my AK.
Link Posted: 2/16/2014 4:22:56 PM EDT
It will be a graceful fit on a MK18... I think it would take some fabricating to go on an AK...and some magic to make it not look like an afterthought... but, you have options, and that's a good thing.

How long does it take for the form 1? If you put a 37mm barrel do you still need to register it?

Year or more sent via mail. 3-4 months done as a trust/corporation with eFile. No, it will remain a title I firearm with a 37mm barrel.

Same here and I have no idea...I know Randy Shaivek (sp?) used to sleeve 40mm barrels with a slick (non rifled) 37mm tube but I don't think he does it anymore, not real sure.
