I have been hearing that the rogue agency known as BATFE has backed down on the receiver/parts kit ban.

Anyone have the real dish on this?

Will we be seeing $175 Imbel receivers again?

I know but then I herd they didn't back off and are going to ban the FAL & AK kits.

I do not have it in writting so I take it with a grain of salt.

I was told yesterday that Dealers have till Sept 11th to get their paper work and stuff into the BATF for importation of parts and parts kits. Has far has anything not put in for import to the USA that there is no grace period.

After these parts and parts kit's are recieved that will be it. From a BATF agent who works out of Queens. He is only a agent on the street but knows what is going on. He said he will try and find out any new info after the first of the year for me.

So I should have spent the 200 bux on the FAL with the Imbel reveiver I saw at the gunshow this weekend?

Glad to see our government is working so hard to serve the will of the people.

That's too bad. .. I have a few imbels, but as we all know - not enough. FYI - The prices I've seen imbel receivers sell for lately is getting close to the DSA range. I guess for that money I would just go DSA in the future.
