As I understood it 10 years ago, the bill became law as soon as Clinton signed the bill and the ink dried. That was in the middle of the day. So if he signed it on 13 September 1994 at noon (hypothetically) wouldn't it expire on 13 September 2004 at 12:01PM?

Actually, no. The sunset provision states the ban expires on the DATE that is 10 years after the date of enactment, not that it expires exactly 10 years from the moment it was signed. Only the date is significant.

Either way if it expired at 1PM I dont see the ATF busting down your door at 11AM to get your rifle thats illegal for 2 more hours.

I'm on Mountain Time so I believe I can assemble mine at 10:00 p.m. Good time to test out that new Phantom 5C1.
