ATF Agents Raid Gun Maker For Selling Build-It-Yourself Firearms


Quote
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) on Thursday raided a popular gun component manufacturer under suspicion that the organization was selling firearms without mandating background checks.

Polymer80, one of the nation’s leading sellers of unserialized gun components and DIY firearm kits, was suspected of illegally distributing and manufacturing guns and failing to conduct background checks, according to The Wall Street Journal. The ATF raided the Nevada business, despite 80% receivers, which the corporation primarily sells, being legal and not considered firearms, according to the government body’s website.

I hope they've got good lawyers and they put up a good fight. ATF declares a lower as a firearm, even though it is only a hollow piece of aluminum (or poly) and cannot shoot a thing. These aren't complete, and therefore not a firearm.

What if someone bought a block of solid aluminum?

It’s getting deeper. They also visited Brownells and Midway to obtain customer records and have already gone to a residence and threatened the homeowner with a warrant to search his home if he didn’t surrender his, “Buy-Build-Shoot” kit from Polymer 80 which is what they seem to be targeting at the moment. If you have one of those kits, have your attorney on speed dial.

Welcome to the Biden era folks.

Anyone in the firearms/ammunition/accessories business is looking at the end of the road. Re-invest in unicorns, therapy pets, and rainbows for todays generation.


One shot is all it should take.

I find this disturbing. What else did they look at?

I would assume that they looked at anything they wanted.

Pretty sure this happened under Trump's watch.

Technically, yes. But the Biden transition team has reportedly met with the ATF already and getting, “ghost guns” off the streets is one of things they want addressed,

And now, several gun channels are saying the ATF intends to declare that ALL pistol braces constitute ownership of an SBR or SBS.
