Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Default Standard Manufacturing Releases SKO Mini, a Semi-Auto, 12GA ‘Firearm’

When is a shotgun not a shotgun?

Quote:
It looks like a shotgun, shoots like a shotgun, and accepts 12GA shot shells, but according to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms, the Standard Manufacturing SKO Mini isn’t a shotgun.

And if it isn’t a shotgun, it can’t be a short-barreled shotgun either, no matter the barrel length.

Using the same legal principle applied to the Remington TAC-14 and the Mossberg Shockwave, the semi-automatic SKO Mini can be purchased with a 14.75-inch barrel without the additional $200 tax stamp usually required to purchase a shotgun with a barrel longer than 18 inches.

Because the SKO Mini comes without a stock and its overall length is greater than 26 inches, the ATF can’t categorize it as a shotgun or as “any other weapon” under the National Firearms Act. In his letter to Standard Manufacturing, the ATF’s chief of the Firearms Technology Industry Services Branch calls it simply a “12 gauge firearm” and concludes it does not fall under the NFA.

The SKO Mini is a gas-operated firearm fed from a detachable box magazine. The gun comes with a 2-shell magazine, though 5 and 10-shell magazines are also available.
