Comments: Get A Fore Grip

Actually the current ruling is that if the weapon was not originally manufactured with a vertical foregrip, it is permissible to add one as an accessory without it becoming an AOW.

Of course expecting consistency from the ATF.. well the definition of insantiy and all that.

I wrote about it here a few weeks ago:

Not to put too fine a point on the issue, but,

I'm very disappointed that there is no difference between recent democrat and republican administrations in how the BATFE is managed. Bush version 2.0 would have signed a renewal of the 1994 AWB and has let the BATFE ban the import of parts kits that contain former machine gun barrels. Not to mention, the perpetuation of the chinese import ban...otherwise, we could be buying $375 Norinco M1A's.

10 years ago I was silly enough to think that the problem was that Clinton was in office...I was certainly wrong. There is some hope thet the judicial branch will eventually overturn the 1986 ban on constructing new machine guns, but that's about all we can hope for. In a perfect world, we'd just have a ~ $1000 tax on new machine guns, which would be inline with the intent of the the 1934 act.

My favorite quote from the "modern firearms" site emphasis mine...

"Because the compact size and RELATIVELY POWERFUL 9MM PARABELLUM AMMUNITION necessary resulted in high cyclic rate of fire, Beretta designers decided do limit the practical rate of fire by introducing a burst limiter, which allowed only for three shot bursts, in addition to the standard semi-automatic fire."

Whaaat? relatively powerful 9mm Parabellum ammunition ?!?!?

And how exactly does the size of the weapon and ammo selection change the cycling rate?

I expect this sort of half assed commentary from the MSM but at a site called "modern firearms"
