I sold two of my collection in a private sale. My Romanian SKS, and a CM-11, both to my friend Jason. The CM-11 I never shoot. To tell the truth, I aquired it back when I first started buying guns because I thought it looked scary enough that it might eventually get banned, in which case I could cash in. Maybe I sold it too soon, but I could no longer justify the room it was taking up in my safe, for something I never shot. Jason has a full auto M-11, and the uppers on the full auto and semi-auto versions are interchangeable, so he can use it.
This is the first time I’ve sold part of my collection. I plan to aquire a new SKS with my C&R license. The CM-11 sale was just making room in my safe. The one complication is that the SKS is C&R eligible, and although I acquired it before licensing, I’m selling it post licensing, so I’m not sure whether I record it in my bound book. I have to call the ATF to find out for sure. I have seven days to find out. I’m pretty sure the answer is no, I just have to record the disposition in my personal firearms record.
Either way, my current plan is to get a Yugoslavian SKS, and a Nagant revolver. Later, hopefully, I can get an M1 Carbine, and M1 Garand.
