    Why was receiver cut on a ACC Intrac

    Hello everyone,

    I bought an Egyptian Maadi ACC Intrac parts kit with all matching numbers and in very good condition in my opinion. I asked the seller and he did not know and did not ask the previous owner. Any ideas why the receiver was cut as other Intracs have a intact receiver? Thanks in advance and I have attached pictures (other parts are in bags and just wanted to show the main ones).

    This is a link to an old thread on Ar15.com. A poster by the name of Flyer had this to say and it may be the reason.

    FYI, some Maadi's were imported in the early 1990's that had the FA Y stamped receiver with the FA hole drilled and then filled with a rivet. I had one of these for a couple of months and got a call from my friend who was the dealer that I pruchased the rifle from. He had been notified by the importer (Pars or Intrac, I can't remember) that these were considered machine guns by the ATF and had to be returned. I had to send it back to the importer and they sent me a new rifle without the rivet (Y stamp and no rivet). Unfortunately, the new rifle was not as nice as the old. I did however only send the rifle back and kept all of the accessories. So be cautious when buying a 1990's Maadi rifle and look for the Y stamp with a rivet. If you see one don't buy it. I am sure that if there are any still out there, ATF is still looking for them today.

    Tell me about it. I paid $700 for the kit which is the same going rate for the Maadi kits that have the Arabic on the rear sight block and trunnion. Had to jump on this one.

    On Gunbroker in 2010 I bid on a Intrac Maadi that was cut similar to the one in the pictures above.

    The seller was in St. Petersburg Florida.

    I researched the company and found it had a contract to “dispose of law enforcement firearms” in Florida.

    During a email exchange, the seller indicated the arms were either evidence that was not returned to the owner, confiscated or firearms turn over to LE.

    In 2014 the seller stopped listing items on Gunbroker.

    Interesting. The guy I bought it from lives in Utah. Do you remember how much the one you bid on went for?

    There are still a couple guys on there selling police seizures and turn ins. I think there are more than a couple of the police buy backs that funnel guns through a couple sellers on gunbroker to make $ for the department doing the buy back. They have anti-2a charities give them the money for the gift cards, etc, then they "destroy" the weapon, and either sell them to the guys on gunbroker or else get percentage is what I'm expecting is happening. I get parts kits pretty frequently that way.

    The final price for the cut Maadi ARM on GB was $300.
    At the same time at a local gun show in WA state I had the opportunity to purchase a new in the box Intrac Maadi ARM @ $400.
    That was 2010

    Cool that you got one with an intact and headspaced Egytian barrel.

    There was a time when police would auction such things off. IN the early 1980's my best friend bought two Costa Mesa Armalite AR-7 .2LR rifles from such an auction.

    Now, for the most part it is "get those evil guns off the streets".

    I think Arizona actually requires their police departments and anyone doing a "buy back" to auction off the guns they receive. I'm pretty sure a number of agencies use Sierra Auction Management to auction off seized firearms.

    Here's a link to them on Proxibid...
