Armed Exhibition Drill Rifles for Sale
How to buy a demilitarized Rifle
The transaction probably doesn’t go like that. but it’s relatively easy to purchase a demilitarized (demil’d) rifle from the the companies below. If you already have a Federal Firearms License (FFL), then you can order the rifle straight from the company. If you do not have an FFL, you can go to your local gun dealer and explain the situation to them, they will give you paperwork and you will pay a fee to have the rifle delivered to the dealer (who has an FFL) who will then give the rifle to you.
Thanks to Adam Jeup for outlining this step-by-step process.
Replica rifles that are not created specifically for spinning/drill, could be a hazard waiting to happen. Real rifles are made from steel and wood, plastic or a resin composite. Theatrical replica rifles are usually not made from steel, but from zinc or another cheaper, softer metal that MAY NOT hold up to slams and the rough use that happens with exhibition drill. An example of this type of rifle is here: http://replicaweaponry.com/m1garica3m1r.html and http://www.keystonearsenal.com/shop/?cat=5. Denix of Spain is one of the theatrical replica rifle makers.
