Ed, good to see you, long time no see.

Everybody, I was shopping gun parts for an imported shotgun and kept running across references to "922r compliant", that the imported gun "is not 922r compliant out-of-the-box with high-capacity magazines".

What is that all about? The (expired) Clinton gun ban?

Is it still relevant? Do I have to modify the imported piece with aftermarket U.S. content before using the "noncompliant" magazines?

Or is that Old Clintonspeak, and no longer operative?

Second question: What's the consensus here: Can Red Nancy and the Magic Negro do a retroactive gun ban to January 1? Retroactivity (unconstitutional) has never bothered Congress when it came to raising taxes.

Further to my last: Please FReepmail me with replies if there is indeed a legal bind. No point in letting people off-site know what we're thinking.

Thanks muy muchesimo mucho, in advance.

Taking a guess here, but I believe `922r compliant’ refers to the number of imported versus U.S. made parts which make up a legal semi-automatic firearm. Usually applied to AK-47 lookalikes where an American made receiver is built into a rifle using imported parts. IIRC, at least six component parts must be U.S. made.

All this is subject to change under the incoming New Order. But the Anointed One may just have too full a plate for the time being.

Great to see you again, too! Happy New Year - hope all is well!

I'm not up to speed on 922r compliance, but based on the recent activity in this forum - Saiga 922r Compliance / THE LAW - it looks like it's still relevant.

As far as the consensus of a retroactive gun ban to January 1, they'd be stupid to attempt it. However the Democrat Party is now in charge, so you can expect extreme levels of stupidity beginning January 21. They'd be wise to just leave gun owners alone.

Do you read the NRA's America's 1st Freedom magazine? There is an article titled Beware The Rahm (Emanuel) in the January issue. Scary reading. The article is also online here: http://www.nraila.org/Issues/Articles/Read.aspx?id=339&issue=047. Pelosi and Obama are just the tip of the iceberg.
