Scott Everett Coyl, 28, of Redlands, Calif., was arrested at his residence early yesterday morning. Special agents from ATF’s Los Angeles Field Division along with officers from the Redlands Police Department seized approximately 40 firearms, including three machine guns, as well as eight silencers, more than 100 high capacity magazines, ammunition, and additional items from Coyl’s residence.
Coyl was arrested for dealing firearms without a license and was in possession of weapons not registered under the National Firearms Act (NFA). NFA, which was originally enacted in 1934, includes shotguns having barrels less than 18 inches in length, and rifles having barrels less than 16 inches in length, certain firearms described as “any other weapons,” machine guns, and firearm mufflers and silencers. An application for a warrant authorizing the search of Coyl’s residence was issued after three controlled purchases of firearms occurred by ATF personnel from the Riverside Field Office and Redlands PD.
According to the affidavit in support of the complaint, since early March, Coyl sold five .223 caliber AR-type rifles with no make or model markings, and no visible serial number to a convicted felon. The affidavit alleges Coyl built AR type rifles from unfinished lower receivers, machining out the lower receiver, then adding parts to make a complete firearm. Coyl sold firearms out of the garage of his residence.
