Buying Guns From A Store
When you are buying a gun from a store, it is important to know the difference between an active part and a barrel. An action part is a mechanism that helps your rifle fire rounds. A barrel is the part of the gun that holds the ammunition and provides the path for the round to travel. You may be able to buy a gun without an active part, but you will not be able to fire rounds.
So if you hear someone talking about buying a gun with no active part or barrel, they are really referring to a gun that cannot shoot anything. They will also probably say “buy it used” if they can get a good price on it. If you want to buy guns, you can contact Mountain Tactical.
Another thing to remember is that even if the person selling the gun doesn’t want money, they can’t sell it without an active part or a barrel. The store might have one of those barrels because people keep asking for them and the store needs it to sell guns.
You can only buy a gun in Illinois if the state where you live has a similar law. This means that if you have a short barrel rifle that is so long it cannot be used as a rifle and says “Short Barrel Rifle” on the outside of the stock, it could not be registered here even though it is legal to purchase or own.
In fact, even if you had bought your rifle new in another state and brought it back here for trade or sale, you still couldn’t register this firearm because there are no provisions for registration for firearms brought into Illinois from another state.
