Could someone shed some light on this new ban. When was it enacted? Who spear-headed it? I've been across the Pacific. I must have missed it then.

It is not a new ban...

They are just "enforcing" an existing law.

Basically people have been using "non-sporting imported" barrels from "kits" to assemble "new" weapons. Technically you are only allowed to repair or replace an existing barrel with one of the barrels that was imported.

According to most accounts this new push came from very very top officials, not just Bailey crying about it.

Basically they just made it harder for us to have cheap (cheaper) guns made. The barrels are legal in the US, but not for building "new" guns with them after they get here as individual barrels or in a parts kit.

US ingenuity found a slight loophole in the importation law and people up top didn't like it so they started enforcing it, go figure

This just means that US barrel makers will have to fill in the void once the imported barrels are all used up... This means more cost added to your gun... and you can almost forget cold-hammer forged barrels

This really only affects people that build from surplus kits like AKs, HKs, FALs, FNCs,+ many more... shit, the list is longer than I thought... I think AKs, HKs, and FALs are probably the hardest hit though... I could be wrong ?

Are there any US made barrels available?

who makes them?

I've been putting off a G3 build for 3 years. does that mean i cant send my parts to IGF and have it built?

or does it just mean that i need a US barrel and all is good?

Sorry for all the questions, i just got around to thinking about this new finding.

This will not affect your build.

Exactly what parts do you have ? A complete G3 kit ?

If so, then you just have to worry about compliance parts, nothing new.

Also, check out JLD : www.jldenter.com
for any parts you may need for you project.

They have everything !

The only thing effected is importing barrels. Anything already in the US is good to go.

So if you already have the barrel, no sweat.. get that sucker built!
