IIRC, that would be Section 922 (o), and it is still in effect, as it was not part of the 1994 crime bill, but is part of the "non-sporting" import restrictions that Congress passed in in 1989.ChiefBirdsong said:I read that the M4 has more than 10 parts manufactured overseas and can't be altered without a lot of paperwork. Did that restriction pass with the sunset of the Crime Bill?
Important part in red.I received the following reply from the BATF today regarding the Benelli M1014 / M4 super 90 shotgun:
Dear Mr. *****:
This refers to your letter of September 21, 2004, to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), in which you ask about adding a telescoping stock and a magazine extension to a Benelli M1014 shotgun.
A shotgun with a telescoping stock or a magazine greater than 5 rounds is prohibited from importation into the United States under the provisions of section 925(d)(3) of Title 18, United states code (U.S.C.). Assembly of such a shotgun from imported parts is prohibited under 18, U.S.C. Section 922(r). The implementing regulations in Title 27, Code of Federal Regulations, Part 478, Section 478.39 (formerly Part 178, Section 178.39) prohibit assembly of such a shotgun that contains more than 10 of the imported parts listed in paragraph (c) of the regulation. Please see the enclosed brochure for further information. Assembly of such a shotgun using 10 or less of the listed import parts is not prohibited. The shotgun is also subject to whatever State laws and local ordinances may apply.
We thank you for your inquiry and trust that the foregoing has been responsive to your request.
