My AK pistol was finally done, and of course, I had to register it. I take it in and right away I knew there were going to be problems. First, at west bloomfield PD, they use cadets to man the front desk. The two cadets opened the box containing the AK pistol, and immediately started turning it over and looking for the serial number. They were confused because there was the serial on the receiver, and then some numbers on the front sight block for parts matching. Second, the ewbanks receiver that was used for the build wasn't in their database, and the cadet was too inexperienced to put 9999 for other into the make or manufacturer field. So what do they do? They go get Lt. Chapin to take a look at it and try to get this thing registered after a ridiculous hour and a half of sitting and waiting. Heres where it gets interesting. After some more waiting while they look at it in the back room, he calls me up to the front desk and says, Aren't they fond of saying to we civilians, that ignorance of the law is no excuse. Shouldn't that apply to them as well? Ignorance of the law is no excuse for taking my lawful property without cause. I even offered to get Ken on the phone, the guy who built it, to explain to Mr. Lt Chapin just how wrong he was. At this point I was blown away by the absolute ignorance, but politely tried to explain how this was built using a virgin receiver as a pistol, despite using a rifle caliber. When rebuffed again, I finally said I'd like my gun back and that I'll come back in the next chance I get. He refused to give me the gun back. No effort was made to catalog or guarantee the return of my lawful property. They didn't take my name, or phone number. I had to ask for a receipt as they were getting up to leave the room, and the sorry excuse for a receipt is attached below: A hand written paragraph, with the 'other' parts matching number on it no less! I have lots of ideas, but in your opinions, what should I do? Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
