Serial number starts with 03 so it is a 1997 model.
    Over to the brains trust, Is it likely to be factory or has it been chopped?
    Agree with old greybeard, long standing federal rules set minimum 16" barrels on rifles unless the owner has a special FFL license just like fully auto ownership.

    Actually, a short barrel weapon, full auto or suppressor does not require any kind of FFL. What it does require is a special tax, generally $200, and for that you get a pretty stamp attached to a paper saying you are the owner. That paper and stamp stay with the item as long as you own it. FFL is not required.

    The OP is from Tasmania - a lot of countries, even those with strict restrictions allow suppressors, etc. Perhaps they aren't concerned about a short barreled barrel.

    Thanks for the clarification. Both are in the same category for me. I don't want the Gov't in my business any more than they already are. Stay between the lines and life just seems to be less stressful.

    Here in Australia a 15inch barrel can be legal if the overall length of the firearm is over 750mm (Approx 2'6") But if it has been shortened then he is wanting way too much for it. I am awaiting more pics of the markings.

    Technically you do indeed need a Title 1 FFL, but not your typical FFL it needs to be a Class 3 FFL dealer with approved SOT (Special Occupation Tax) to do the paperwork and transfer. Usually you pay him for the gun or the transfer, and he retains the gun until the Feds finish all the background checks and issue the stamp that then allows you to accept transfer, and own the gun. It cannot be transferred to you until all this is completed.
    For a really comprehensive explanation of how this works take a look at Old Glory's site and their excellent explanation.
