X-Products "Can Cannon" now a NFA item
Saw this posted on the other site and thought I'd add this here and answer some of the questions posed about the new determination.

As some may know, the can cannon is now a regulated item. Because of the design of the ported "barrel insert" inside of the tube it will now turn your rifle lower into a SBR and your pistol lower into an AOW. The reasoning behind this is because of the approximately 1" of smooth "bore" between the chamber end and the ported end. Another thing that doesn't work for this piece of the system is the threaded open end of the internal "tube" that came with only a set screw silver soldered in place. This was supposed to become a part of their rope launcher when it was released and why it wasn't permanently welded shut.

I understand the sarcasm but knowing the justification I think a better reply would be "do you know how many 1 inch barreled AR15s are used in crimes?", or "how many smooth bore AR15 pistols are used in crimes?"

Still, the answer is zero.

ETA: I think the real outrage should be with X-products for putting this out before the physical sample could be evaluated by the ATF and then when they get a red light on it they try to charge their customers $20 plus whatever shipping in order to fix THEIR mistake. Oh, but they'll give you $20 in credit then towards buying "their" blank cartridges.
