Question by dragoneye814: How can I get a FFL to own an AK-47 legally?
I am interested in getting a federal firearms license through the ATF. I am interested in gun collecting and would love to have a AK 47 or an the updated AK74 full auto assault rifle to take to the range. I am not sure how to get the FFL because I am not a firearms dealer.

Confused me at first. You do not need a Federal Firearms License unless you are going to become a firearms dealer.
If you want to own a fully automatic weapon, you need a Class III license.
Call the ATF and tell them what you want to buy. They will send you the necessary forms to fill out. Expect to wait awhile for them to do the background investigation. I believe the license will cost you about $ 200.
The last time I looked at the cost of a fully auto weapon, the cheapest I could find was still over $ 5,000.00
