    So if you slap something on your evil implement, send it to them and they deem it NFA, I'm guessing you ain't getting it back?

    Pretty much zero chance I'd be sending one of my guns to the Govt for them to inspect...

    Pretty sure this ain’t directed to you unless you’re a manufacturer and desiring a ruling on something to ascertain if it falls under NFA or not.

    But, hey, I been wrong before....

    This is how I read it, too. So if a manufacturer of an accessory, say an angled foregrip, already has a letter of approval from the ATF, they should be GTG.

    Until the ATF goes against their own regulations and declares their previous position to be, uh, what it’s always been. Opposed to the accessory, yes, that’s it, we never said it was OK.

    How does a NFA manufacturer work? I had little old "Billie Bob's Gun Shop" with a 07 FFL in mind when I posted this.

    This is only for manufacturers.
    If you plan to setup and really manufacture something, you can afford to send a sample.

    Yep, in the case of bump stocks and cranks.
