NSSF on Polymer80 ATF Raid: Consult an Attorney Before Selling ‘Buy Build Shoot’ Kits

(Photo: Polymer80)

NSSF is aware that Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) executed a search warrant at Polymer80’s offices in Arizona and seized from Polymer80 one “Buy, Build, Shoot”  kit and some company records, apparently including customer lists for those kits. According to several news reports, in the affidavit to obtain the search warrant – which was leaked to the media – the ATF took the position that the Polymer80 “Buy, Build Shoot” kit is a “firearm” because it is “readily convertible” to fire. It does not appear that ATF considers standalone so-called “80% receivers” to be a “frame or receiver” regulated by the 1968 Gun Control Act. Retailers should consult with their attorney and/or contact ATF for guidance as to whether it may sell “Buy, Build and Shoot” kits and under what conditions. NSSF will continue to monitor this situation and report further as we learn more facts.

    ATF is gearing up to become the secret police under Biden. They were heavy handed under Clinton, and are salivating for the power again to go after legal gun owners. Low hanging fruit, easy prosecutions, and makes them look good (to themselves).
    they are now going after pistol braces after their secrete meeting with Biden.

    A customer was visited in AZ and had his frame confiscated. That established the fact that Polymer80 shipped across state lines without an FFL.

    No one told NSSF that P80 is in NV not AZ.
