At least it isn't made out of cast parts
Ruger seems like they are hell bound and determined to be a firearms Goliath in America. I hope this works out for them, it would be cool to have them lobby for stuff like the HPA so they can sell budget kits like a $1500 RPR with a .30 caliber can and some accessories over the counter in any old gun shop.
They're just stepping a toe into the SOT game, a .22lr suppressor is easy to make, not subjected to crazy pressures, and gives them an NFA item to put their logo on. They're also pretty much known for .22lr firearms, so this is a pretty smart move.
I'm personally exited as fuck to se big names start to dabble in NFA items, It makes them more main stream and gives large company backing to stuff like the Hearing Protection Act and smacking the NFA around.
Imagine if Mossberg could sell "SBS 500" HD shotguns, or these Ruger suppressors could come packaged with guns.
Hell, imagine if the HPA passes and ruger can sell integrally suppressed 10/22 takedowns and 22/45's
Imagine if this was a standard variant offered by Ruger from the factory.
Do you have too get more than one tax stamp for each type of the same gun, like if you get the stamp for a short shotgun and make or buy a sawed off would you have too go through the whole thing again for a serbu shorty? Also would a semiauto tec-9/10/kg-99 need a stamp for it or not?
Each gun is it's own NFA item and the stamp is for the individual serial number for the individual gun.
Looks cool, I like the snap together baffle stack.
Maybe they will be ~$550 +stamp if Ruger mass produces them.
BLM protesters should really be grateful that Murrican cops idea of less than lethal isn't a .22 LR to the kneecaps
I guess that price isn't crazy for something so versatile that will last you ages.
1 stamp per controlled item.
Two cut-down shotguns are two SBS tax stamps. One suppressor that goes on two guns is one suppressor tax stamp. One integrally suppressed short-barrel rifle is two tax stamps.
You're buying a federally regulated arm. This is the EXACT same process and paperwork to buy an RPG-7 or a full auto M60, it takes a while, and each new gun or silencer requires the paperwork to be done from scratch.
>Yes, you have to do the ENTIRE process over every time you buy a new item. 6-8 moths per form
This should go faster now that Obama has mandated more employees handling the background check system. See! He's totally pro gun guize! :^)
Nope, that has jack and shit to do with the NFA paperwork.
Oh, and to clear something up
>The trust changes mean if you have a trust you must notify your LEO and submit the relevant photos and finger prints
>But the LEO can't deny you if you have a trust
>The LEO can still deny an individual
>You do not get to avoid LEO approval as an individual
>All this did is fuck with trust owners a little but, nothing good happened for anyone.
Assuming the barrel comes out to 16" wth the suppressor permanently attached then it would only be one stamp for the can. If the suppressor threads off then you'd need another stamp for the short barrel. The way to get around this is to make the suppressor body permanently part of the barrel but to make the baffle stack removable for cleaning.
Well that's good to know, but I've never seen any sub $200 cans. (not calling you a liar)
Now if you could find me a $200 AR can I'd be a happy camper!
And I just found an article claiming a suggested retail price of $449 for the Ruger, so that's not nearly as bad as I had assumed.
No, they have final say and can deny you for any reason they want.
The bill didn't say you don't need LEO approval as an individual. So nothing change. So you still need LEO approval as an individual.
