Interesting. Mac put one up also. I have not watched either.



I don't have a FRT not for a lack of wanting one, i simply can't keep the guns i have fed. giving myself a way to starve the guns i have faster isn't an option i am willing to pay for.



I'll skip adding the mac vid since he referenced the GOA vid

Was a C3 Mg dealer for 18 years, full auto gets boring after a while. When I could get Silver Bear 9mm for $4 a box I would shoot them. When it got up to $10 a box it cost almost $200 a minute to shoot the MP5. The bullet hose Glock FA and Mini Uzi were much much worse!

So while I think it is bullshit that they can arbitrarily make something illegal years after. They need to take this to court ASAP.

Videos are saying Rare breed was raided? I haven't seen anything saying that Rare Breed was raided, at least not yet? I'm sure they are going to have to raid them first then obtain customer information and then work there way down the chain. Something that never occurred with the bump stock. 800,000 bump stocks were made per the company president and the rumors are less than 1000 were turned in.

Scary that the letter refers to people who possess rare breed triggers as defendants. Well, this is going to be interesting.

How far back do they plan on going? I think FRTs have been around a long time. I think the Echo was one of the earlier ones?



Not minority enough!

It will be challenged in court and I bet Rare Breed will win because the statute says a machine gun fires multiple rounds with one trigger pull and an FRT trigger only fires one round per pull. But an FRT does make it a lot easier and faster to make all those trigger pulls.

No doubt they can change the law and slip it into some big legislation in the future, but that does take an act of Congress. The ATF cannot redefine an FRT as a machine gun any more than they can redefine a bump stock as a MG, and that finding was overturned in court.

But in the meantime Rare Breed could be out of business and buried in legal fees, and that will make others think twice about making FRT's in the future.

RBT was set up as an independent entity precisely to weather this storm. This outcome was expected and if you believe some of the hype around it, almost purpose-built for a showdown in court.

ATF's long history of inconsistent rulemaking and interpretation of laws makes it a regulatory nightmare from the POV of the public and industry. To what end...I'll guess we'll see.
