7N6 5.45×39 Ammunition Ban 2014

Monday, April 7, 2014

AK-Ban-5.45×39

What Is 5.45×39 Ammo?

When ATF tested the 7N6 samples provided by CBP, they were found to contain a steel core. ATF’s analysis also concluded that the ammunition could be used in a commercially available handgun, the Fabryka Bronie Radom, Model Onyks 89S, 5.45×39 caliber semi-automatic pistol, which was approved for importation into the United States in November 2011. Accordingly, the ammunition is “armor piercing” under the section 921(a)(17)(B)(i) and is therefore not importable.


What Started all This?

What Is 5.45×39 Ammo?

What Is AP Ammo?
Gun Control Act of 1968
Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994

Who can Own AP Ammo?

7.62×39 Steel-Core “Ban”

5.45×39 Pistols
– XCR-L 5.45x39mm Pistol – JBI Armory 5.45x39mm Pistol – Horns Custom Rifles 5.45x39mm Pistol
Other “Rifle” Caliber Pistols

What is Next?

Who can Own AP Ammo?

7.62×39 Steel-Core “Ban”

Thank you for your interest in ATF’s proposed framework for determining whether certain projectiles are “primarily intended for sporting purposes” within the meaning of 18 U.S.C. 921(a)(17)(C). The informal comment period will close on Monday, March 16, 2015. ATF has already received more than 80,000 comments, which will be made publicly available as soon as practicable.

Although ATF endeavored to create a proposal that reflected a good faith interpretation of the law and balanced the interests of law enforcement, industry, and sportsmen, the vast majority of the comments received to date are critical of the framework, and include issues that deserve further study. Accordingly, ATF will not at this time seek to issue a final framework. After the close of the comment period, ATF will process the comments received, further evaluate the issues raised therein, and provide additional open and transparent process (for example, through additional proposals and opportunities for comment) before proceeding with any framework.

Remember in 2015, when ATF decided M855 ammo was a problem? Remember how public opinion & feedback prevented ATF from following through on any ban #BeTheChange #M855 #AmmoBan #JustTheTip #GreenTip #ArmorPiercing ATF received more than 80,000 comments ================== For Immediate Release Tuesday, March 10, 2015 Notice to those Commenting on the Armor Piercing Ammunition Exemption Framework Thank you for your interest in ATF's proposed framework for determining whether certain projectiles are “primarily intended for sporting purposes” within the meaning of 18 U.S.C. 921(a)(17)(C).
