    Default BATF marking requirements for US made parts

    Does anyone know where I can find a copy of the BATF letter that states that US made parts do not need to be marked to count as 922R compliance parts. I tried search here and came up with nothing.
    Thanks

    AFAIK, the general belief is that the onus is on the BATF to show that the parts are NOT US made, and since there appears to have never been a 922(r) case brought by the BATF, no one's disputing that.

    I've searched through a number of US Codes and the BATF site and have found nothing. Maybe a respectful letter to them would clear this up?

    i was sort of thinking about buying a stamping set from harbor freight tools and stamping usa on my slant muzzle breaks. once its dura coated i doubt anyone would be able to tell. i mean it wouldnt be usa made perse but it would be made into usa. think it'd fly? with no problems? worst comes to worst i bought it at a gun show... right. as long as it says usa people shouldnt question.

    the C from century is one of those things that while at least its an attempt.... doesnt really prove anything either.

    its like my new cetme stock set... it was made for me by an amish fellow. he didnt stamp it US made, and it looks damn near perfect to the original set (just a little better finish) how would i ever prove that?

    If I make a muzzle break in my home shop, does that count as a compliance part???

    Is your shop in the US? Whether homemade or commercially made, as long as a countable part was US manufactured it counts as a compliance part.
