I know they have labled certain features as automatically unsporting but have they labled any features as specifically sporting?

Thanks

Two barrels of 18 inch length or longer without provision for a large capacity ammunition feeding device makes your shotgun a sporting device.

Barrel plugs, welded bolts, removed firing pins, and cut receivers. These are all good features to have on a gun according to the BATFE.

If it was up to the BATFE all we could own would be black powder percussion and flint lock rifles. Under .50 cal of course so we can’t take down an airplane.

Has any manually operated gun ever been denied importation over 'sporting' purposes?

Anything that they feel won't give you an advantage over them would fit the description I would think.

If it were up to the BATFE, we wouldn't be allowed to have black powder rifles... Where in the world did you get the notion we would be able to have those. Heck, just posessing a set of blueprints for a black powder firearm would be a class c felony.

I was hoping the sarcasm previously posted would be a hint, I guess not.

You forget who you're talking to. Next time try and hit him in the face with the joke and he may get it.

though not federal, Cali banned bolt action rifles there (.50cal ban). MA and others have tried a few times for .50 cal bans too, and i'd imagine bolt guns [in that caliber] would be included.

While true, mixing federal and state laws in this discussion may cause some confusion.






Ah hell, its already down the tubes.

All you need to know about the BATF can be found up any asshole.

The ATF considers it their mission to infringe on all civilian ownership of firearms. Only loopholes keep getting in their way. Like the Second Amendment, laws, little things like that.

Good question. They seem to know exactly what ISN'T for "sporting purposes" but can't seem to define what "sporting purposes" includes.

Apparently receivers are bad, barrels are bad. Um. I don't know. Is a trigger ok?
Link Posted: 4/7/2006 8:53:14 AM EDT
Well actually I've never heard of a manually operated gun 50 caliber or less being denied importation

Link Posted: 4/7/2006 9:08:43 AM EDT
Three things I can think of; if I tried harder, I could think of more:

Adjustible sights
Palm swell or thumb rest; can't recall how they word it, exactly
Serrated trigger.

I think we can assume that anything that will add importation points to a firearm can be considered as "sporting features" by ATF, since they see only guns with a sporting purpose as importable for retail sale.

I don't know why you guys aren't trying to answer the question seriously.
