Check this out - from the ATF itself!

Couldn't get the page itself to show up, but here's the link:

www.atf.gov/firearms/saw-faqs.htm

Here are the good parts:

The law enacting the ban provided that it would expire 10 years from the date of enactment, which was September 13, 1994. Therefore, effective 12:01 a.m. on September 13, 2004, the provisions of the law will cease to apply.

The [Large Capacity Ammunition Feeding Device] ban was enacted by the same law as the SAW ban. Therefore, like the SAW ban, it expires 10 years from the date of enactment. Therefore, effective 12:01 a.m. on September 13, 2004, the provisions of the law will cease to apply.

The requirement that

1.) SAWs and LCAFDs manufactured after September 13, 1994, be marked with a date of manufacture next to the serial number...
2.) SAWs and LCAFDs manufactured after September 13, 1994 to be marked “Restricted law enforcement/government use only” or, for weapons manufactured for export, “For export only”

...also are no longer in effect.

SAWs and LCAFDs are no longer prohibited. Therefore firearms with the [Restricted/LEO/Military] markings are legal to transfer to civilians in the United States and it will be legal for non-prohibited civilians to possess them.

LCAFDs are no longer prohibited from importation but they are still subject to the provisions of the Arms Export Control Act.

HOW 'BOUT THAT, FOLKS ?!?

Q: What was the semiautomatic assault weapon (SAW) ban?


God that made my day.
