Ares Armor gets temporary restraining order against BATF

Posted by David Hardy · 13 March 2014 05:02 PM

Summary here. Essentially, Ares makes “80% receivers.” A receiver starts out as raw material — steel, or here polymer. Everyone can agree that’s not a receiver. At the end, it is a finished receiver that, with the appropriate parts attached, can fire. We can all agree that that is a receiver. But at what point between the two does it go from being in one legal status to being in the other?

The industry understanding (and I emphasize understanding) has been that the line is crossed when the future receiver is 80% complete. But this is one area where BATF rulings, if any, are kept private, and never published as a regulation. This violates the Administrative Procedure Act (which requires that general rules for the public be published as regulations — you cannot have a rule that the public must comply with, and keep it secret) and allows a little of wiggle room for “our position is” or “our position has always been.”

Hat tip to Jeff Harris….

  1. Only if they don’t change the rules mid-stream… and I wonder if any ‘customers’ have been confronted yet???

  2. 8. The BATFE has been appropriately informed of their mistake.

    Now if only someone could get them to care. When you make it up as you go, being informed of a mistake is pretty low on the priority list.
