I’m at a loss. I just got a message from a gun importer saying that they won’t be able to sell surplus gun barrels any more.I just don’t understand their reasoning.
Is everyone in Washington that scared? Of What?
As I understand it the ban includes 8mm Mauser barrels.
Now for anyone unfamiliar with the Mauser this is a weapon used by many countries around the world. It is a 5 shot bolt action rifle. They were military weapons used from the 19teens until after WWII. In the 50s and 60s many were imported to the US and sportsterized for hunting.
Anyone hear of terrorists using Mausers in the 50s or 60s?
Whats so different now?
Apparently this ban was a surprise move by the ATF.
It is effective almost immediately.
Here is a url explaining the ban
