    I'm sure I'm missing some of it, but the gist is this. It started off as a virgin receiver so it's not a rifle. They added a barrel that is short enough to SBR it, but at a length greater than 26" it doesn't technically fit the ATF definition of an SBR. I'm confused on all of this actually. I'll be interested to see how this plays out. that could change the dynamics on home builds.

    I think today is the day they are supposed to tell what the catch is.

    Their source code has jokes:

    Interesting, but I will wait to see the products final release.

    I saw on another forum where it may be a trigger issue.

    Rather than one shot per trigger pull, it may fire on trigger release, or perhaps on the second trigger pull.

    Just speculation... I have no clue. :anyone:

    What we know so far:
    • The “firearm” has a rifled barrel so we can put that rumor to rest.
    • The trigger is the standard binary trigger from Franklin. It shoots once when you pull the trigger, and once when you release it.
    • The “firearm” is 26″ long and comes with a stock and no need for a tax stamp or ATF paper work.
    • It shoot’s really well and feels just like an SBR
    What we don’t know:
    • We don’t know what the loop hole Franklin armory found to get an ATF letter saying this is not an SBR
    • It might have something to do with the overall length and the barrel length, but they will not confirm anything until tomorrow.

    From what I understand... a less than 16" barrel OR a less than 26" overall length qualifies a rifle as an SBR (18" or 26" for shotguns). It doesn't require both.

    Guess we'll find out eventually, unless this is just a horrible publicity stunt... :anyone:

    Has to be something to do with the trigger.

    It's a muzzle loader.
