The SP .22 caliber conversion kit.

Post by zfk55 »

You may have been wondering why this 22 caliber conversion has been stalled. I got the answer this morning. The ATF, in its infinite wisdom, has determined that our conversion is to be treated as a separate firearm. Their reason is that the firing device will have an attached barrel insert. That means it would have to be sold as a firearm with a serial number and registration attached to it. I doubt the serial number would even fit on that tiny converter.

In the end, it is something we can do because my head machinist is also a licensed gunsmith, but this is not typical of something that we produce. My son and I will have to discuss this with our machinist and work through cost factors that include it being considered as a firearm by the ATF.

"Hey Fred! Are you on another long coffee break?" Nah,.. Things are so slow around here I'm trying to come up with a new regulation. What say we mess around with .22 calibers this time?
"Yeah! Why not? There must be something new being applied for, right?"

That is stupid.
.22 cal conversions for other rifles don't have to be registered.
The atf should really be eliminated.

Yes, we know. The ATF was eliminated the following day and the pertinent atf agent stands corrected.
My apologies for being stupid.
