Long story short......found in a veterans closet with the 1968 amnesty paper. The owner gave me a notarized paper that he acquired it in Bastogne during battle in WWII along with his personal military information to document it.
It is my first NFA gun. I have been waiting 11 months for the paperwork in my name as I went through a Class III dealer to purchase it (that took 2 transfers). It's beautiful and I love it!!! I couldn't have wished for anything nicer than an MP44 like this.Tomorrow I am taking it out to shoot.
