ATF New Pistol Brace Rule Class
February 23, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
ATF New Pistol Brace Rule Class:
FREE CLASS. MUST SIGN-UP TO ATTEND DUE TO LIMITED SEATING.
The class will go over what you need to do to comply with the new ATF ‘Stabilizing Brace’ Ruling, 2021R-08F:
To comply with new regulations individuals must either:
- register tax-free any existing NFA short-barreled rifles covered by the rule
- remove the stabilizing brace to return the firearm to a pistol
- attach a 16″ or longer rifled barrel to the firearm
- turn in to ATF or destroy the firearm.
Nothing in this rule bans stabilizing braces . The rule allows for a 120-day period, from date of publishing (TBA), for individuals to register tax-free any existing NFA short-barreled rifles covered by the rule. The Rule makes clear when manufacturers, dealers, and individuals use stabilizing braces to convert pistols into rifles with a barrel of less than 16″, they must comply with the laws that regulate those rifles, including those of the NFA. The amended definition of “rifle” shall include a weapon that is equipped with an accessory, component, or other rearward attachment (e.g., “stabilizing brace) that provides surface area that allows the weapon to be fired from the shoulder or indicates that the weapon is designed, made, and intended to be fired from the shoulder.
