This was over on another gun forum. I don't think this will go far or change much personally...
http://www.gunco.net/forums/f43/atf-kits-now-firearms-28940/During a recent (ongoing) BATFE compliance inspection (I am a licensed Mfr.) the BATF agent(s) involved,unwrapped a new sealed Yugo M92 "krink" kit and insisted that it is a "firearm"...........apparently.......... because the barrel is not welded to the trunion and the chamber is not filled with weld. The agents also then went on to record the "serial number" of every kit I had in stock "because they are firerarms."
They also insisted on examining EVER firearm that is my personal property (not inventory,not for sale and marked as such) that are also stored inside my walk in vault (which,is of course not open to the public).The serial numbers of ALL my personal firearms were recorded. The agents also conducted a search,without a warrant, of the basement of my home.
It would seem, that rifle kits, are now firearms.
