there is a way of disassembling it as scrap, buying it as scrap,and reassembling it, the dam things are large welded steel plates and panels and probably not worth the time and money to do something like that,that said, if you could buy it after they see it as scrap, in reusable pieces you could restore and paint them before assembly(going to restore it any way?) hope the guy who dismantles it has a good plasma cutter you would really have to want that particular tankand a lot of money,i think you could buy one cheaper that has the correct paper work

If I buy it I am planning on a resale. I just want a reasonable finders fee is all. I do not want it to be cut up, and it should be in the experianced hands of a loving home, by someone who cares about it's history, even though in combat it has very little. It is still of the "great war" and should be preserved......And it's just so damn cute, the scale of it. It could fit in most garages. That just has to have some appeal with some one. I have an eye for such things if bought cheap enough....

I doubt the ATF will allow it to get in to private hands here in the US unless as Fogtender said (get your senator involved)as they have nothing better to do,now if it was being sent to Mexico they may let it walk....

if the gun is de milled it isn't the problem. The salvage order it may have against it is. Foggy is right it may take Sentor Grassley getting involved. I have delt with him in the past on something else entirely. I hope he remembers me if it gets that far...

What is the law that prevents ownership of the gun part? Is the caliber too big?

Can't you get an ATF Tax Stamp?

I can't find a better site but I have been in the place a few times. He has American, German and Russian tanks. A half track, Jeeps and at least one Huey.
