I have the feeling they would ask for anything. I bet i'd get the same request if I sent in for a CZ scorpion.My SBR application was initially rejected because I did not provide pre-healyban info. I did not have any paperwork, but my dealer was able to reprint the MIRCS paperwork from the original purchase record of this eFA10-ed item. That was accepted and the stamp arrived about a month later.
I think the BATFE pre-examiner (it goes to a contractor to make sure the paperwork is in order, and submitted to an examiner once this prelim step is complete) missed the fact that Healy has not yet banned the 15-22 for new sales.
So in SBR'ing my 15-22 I am getting a request that I prove ownership prior to 6/20. I could have bought one of these last week and done the same. Am I missing something here.
I wonder if my Bren would be rejected then?
You slipped in under the wire. I submitted my app last November and got the request.
The hilarious thing is someone can send BATFE a fake pre 7/20 receipt (or a nicely done up FA-10 copy, maybe, LOL) and it'll probably get rubber stamped... go figure.
What there using
“Firearm”, a pistol, revolver or other weapon of any description, loaded or unloaded,
from which a shot or bullet can be discharged and of which the length of the barrel or
barrels is less than 16 inches or 18 inches in the case of a shotgun as originally
What it really is
'Firearm'', a pistol, revolver or other weapon of any description, loaded or unloaded, from which a shot or bullet can be discharged and of which the length of the barrel or barrels is less than 16 inches or 18 inches in the case of a shotgun as originally manufactured; provided, however, that the term firearm shall not include any weapon that is: (i) constructed in a shape that does not resemble a handgun, short-barreled rifle or short-barreled shotgun including, but not limited to, covert weapons that resemble key-chains, pens, cigarette-lighters or cigarette-packages; or (ii) not detectable as a weapon or potential weapon by x-ray machines commonly used at airports or walk- through metal detectors.
It clearly says in the law a firearm shall not include a short barreled rifle a short barreled shot-gun or an AOW
So a SBR or a SBS or an AOW would not be a firearm and would not need to be tested and be on the approved roster.
