I wonder how many treasures have been "pocketed" by LEO's during these gun "buybacks".
I'm surprised the woman didn't get cuffed for not having the proper permits.

I’ve held a couple of these in my day. Sturdy platform and functionally similar to an AK, it doesn’t surprise me that any little old lady would think it “dangerous” if they’ve been conditioned to see “assault rifles” as such.
If it was a full-auto, depending on its pedigree and condition, it would fetch more than $25,000 without a problem.

It’s amazing what one comes across. In 1982 I purchased an old used Japanese made pellet gun for $3. I never considered it to be of any value at at all until I ran across an identical one on ebay several weeks ago. I also didn’t know that it was one of the few CO2 pellet rifles made with an adjustment for chamber pressure, a feature I didn’t even know it had until I checked further. I now find that it’s worth about $700.

If the rifle wasn’t registered during one of the amnesty periods the ATF will confiscate it from a citizen. I don’t know the legality of the cops putting it in their “collection.”

"If the gun had been in the closet loaded, any second you could hit the wrong level and discharge a fatal round," he said of the Sturmgewehr 44.
GOOD FREAKIN LORD.
Yeah, antigun buffoon, if you hit the wrong 'level' (aka, the trigger), you can discharge a 'fatal' round.
Gaw damned antigun trash f***holes.

"...eventually replaced by the AK 47 in 1947 by Russia, who copied the German design of the Sturmgewehr 44..."
A claim strongly disputed by Mikhail Kalashnikov.

It is unregisterable contraband under the National Firearms Act of 1934 as amended by the Gun Control Act of 1968, per Section 922 of the US Code of Federal Regulations.
That Stg44 cannot be owned legally, and must be melted down immediately.
Haven't you people seen the sacred sculpture in front of the United Nations? Bow down to the twisted gun!
This country is so screwed, that we have laws requiring museum-quality relics to be melted down.

("Remember: Evil exists because good men don't kill the gov officials committing it." -- K. Hoffmann)
Back in the early 1980s, a friend of mine found a nice .32 Colt pistol at a garage sale.
When he asked the woman what she wanted for it, she said that her husband paid $15 dollars for it back in the 1930s and she wanted what he paid for it, $15.00.
A local widow woman sold her husband’s guns to the local police when he died. They got bargans on M1-Garands and M1 carbines, and his other military rifles from WWII.
The locals were very upset that the cops took advantage of her ignorance to fleece her of the rifles.
Officer Crabtree is an honorable, honest man with whom I would prefer to deal if I have to deal with the police.
He is technically incorrect. While the SG44 and AK-47 are superficially similar (to my wife’s untrained eye, they are also indistinguishable from a flattop AR), their operating systems, internal architecture and other mechanical characteristics differ greatly.

I've heard of several incidents like this. There was one discussed here on FR a few months ago where the proverbial little old lady brought in her father's Tommy Gun. Apparently he'd been a hit man/enforcer back during Prohibition and had somehow managed to both elude police and keep the tool of his trade.
Sadly, it ended up getting melted down despite attempts by several museums to acquire it for their collections.
