Trapdoor rifle barrel and block/ refused to sell me!

Posted by Ned Harris on Tuesday, 5 July 2016, at 3:24 p.m.

Today I went to the Kittery Trading Post in Kittery, Maine. They have a trapdoor rifle barrel and block for sale. My home state is Arizona. They refused to sell it to me telling me that I have to send it via an FFL to an Arizona FFL. Is this correct? I thought in general all weapons made prior to 1898 were free of those laws? Can somebody clarify? BTW, the serial number is 426644. There is a small star under the block (not on the muzzle of the barrel), and it has a Buffington sight minus the slider. Barrel looks very clean. Ned
