Our TEMS (medic) will be there he's the owner of Revac-USA. If anyone is looking for some rope work look them up. All the guys on the training staff are real professionals.

Interesting

There is a 22 page thread on another website I frequent with people pulling out their hair trying to figure it out.

The NFA and GCA are bad enough, but when you add ATFE interpretations into the mix, your mind explodes. I am remembering the Akins Accelerator, and how the ATF first said yes, then said no, then went after people who had them.

I would definitely like to see the Technology Branch letter saying this is OK. Not that it won't be OK next week.

I actually think this won't go that way. Here's why.

Things that simulate full auto are seen a certain way, reality notwithstanding. Most people have no idea how many rounds can go down range and hit nothing on full auto even when somewhat aimed, never mind bump firing. (Of course all bets are off if you dump enough rounds into a small enough area that's packed with people, as we have recently seen...)

SBR's on the other hand.....ATF has been virtually snowed under in recent years with Form 1's for cans and SBR's. Getting the NFA changed would be like pulling rhinoceros teeth while the beastie is awake. This is a way around the SBR requirements for them as well as us. Who buys an actual SBR after SHOT. Ditto with the move with them removing the registration requirement for cans and making them a 4473/background check thing.

The "patented technology" reference is what has me curious. Perhaps they have ruled polygon/hexagon/whatever bores to be
smooth bore? (No one said patented by them did they?) Which technically they are as there are no lands and grooves....that's probably wrong, I can't see it but that's all I got in addition to the other guesses already posted on the web. I'm really thinking its going to be a length thing, otherwise why so set on exactly 11.5"?
