Braces And Receivers

One of the hot issues for gun control immediately after the 2020 election was the two-part proposal from the ATF to reclassify any number of firearms parts,, primarily receivers, that are not currently required to have a serial number (and therefore a background check) as "firearms" and also a proposal to reclassify AR/AK pistols with stabilizing braces as NFA-covered "short barreled rifles" requiring a tax stamp and additional hoops (for more see: More Details On The Proposed Pistol Brace Ban and Alphabet Bois At It Again). Anyway, it looks like we have a timeframe for the rules coming down...



Took him long enough to get around to it but the basic info is this: June of this year for the new receiver rule and August for the pistol brace rule. That means that the clock has restarted on those of us who still need to make those purchases or want to add a few to the arsenal. 

Of course all of that is out the window if they pull off the false flag mass shooting and start passing new laws....

    1. They are going to generously let us pay the $200 fee after the fact, something no one is going to do and since the penalty is the same, most people will just say screw it and use a regular rifle stock instead of the brace. Tens of millions of instant felons.

    2. question, do you think if the "brace" is removed and there is just the buffer that it will be kosher? seems that it would

    3. Yes, a pistol with the buffer tube but no brace would be fine (for the most part)

    4. Of course, if some industrious person were to fabricate a "glove" that had some type of reenforced sleeve with hard points for "support" the discussion would be moot 😁

  2. On the bright side, I doubt we make it to June intact as a country.
