    Default Language in kit adds

    I have seen a couple of kits lately that have this sort of language on them....

    ACCORDING TO AN OPINION OF BATF, BARRELS ARE FOR REPAIR AND REPLACEMENT ONLY. BARRELS ARE NOT ALLOWED TO BUILD 922(r) COMPLIANT GUNS. ALL BATF/NFA RULES APPLY.

    What are they talking about?? How does this impact building your own kits?

    This pertains to people who build rifles for a living.

    ..also? It's a feel good "junk" ruling. Proof - give me the serial number on your barrel

    Thanks for the quick reply.

    Glad to see that I am still A-Ok for a personal build.

    The actual law reads that it is illegal to import them for this purpose, not to use them for this purpose after they are here. It would be illegal for the importer to sell you the barrel if he knew you were going to build a new gun.

    The disclaimer is a CYA for the importer and they typically require distributors to agree to display the disclaimer as well for further CYA. The ATFE takes the stance that you are violating a law that doesn't apply to you. Manufactures have to go along with this as ATFE can pull their SOT administratively, i.e. no legal review unless you then sue in civil court to get it back. I suspect that a lot of manufactures are building guns with these barrels as I see guns offered for sale whose parts kits were not imported before this ruling.
