THE ATF RELEASED A CLARIFICATION LETTER, ARE YOU STILL SELLING?
The latest clarification letter from the ATF on partially complete polymer pistol frames did not affect our GST-9 products due to the injunction we received from a federal court.
As a result, 80% Arms is currently the only manufacturer where you can purchase an 80% polymer pistol frame without an FFL.
ARE YOU STILL SELLING GST-9’S?
YES. The ATF’s clarification letter did not affect our GST-9 products due to the injunction we received from a federal court.
Am I allowed to buy Jigs and 80% Lowers now?
As long as your state permits it, YES. Individuals prohibited from possessing firearms and ammunition under the gun control act of 1968 may not purchase or possess 80% lowers.
Did 80% Arms Receive an Injunction?
Yes, we were granted an injunction on 11/03 allowing us to resume business as usual before the new Rule went into effect. In simple terms, the court has banned the ATF from enforcing the new Rule against 80% Arms and its customers. This allows our customers to buy jigs and lowers from us without fear of the ATF taking enforcement action. However, we are not sure how long this injunction will last and strongly encourage stocking up now. You can read the injunction here.
What is an injunction?
A preliminary injunction is a judicial order that stops a person or agency from taking an action that is threatening or invading the legal right of another.
What is granted under this injunction?
Under this injunction, we are protected to sell both jigs and lowers to our customers.
Is the injunction permanent?
The injunction is not permanent, it will only last until the issuance of a final judgment in a case. We strongly suggest that you place an order now as we do not know what the outcome of this case will be.
Are other companies permitted to ship both jigs and lowers to customers?
No, only companies named in the preliminary injunction are able to lawfully sell both jigs and lowers.
Are you still shipping lowers?
Absolutely! We are still shipping and manufacturing 80 percent lowers at our new location in Fort Worth, Texas.
Can I still legally purchase/own an 80% lower?
Yes, depending on your state and local laws you can still purchase and possess an 80% lower. Individuals prohibited from possessing firearms and ammunition under the gun control act of 1968 may not purchase or possess 80% lowers.
Can you still ship 80% lowers directly to my address?
As long as your state allows you to own an 80% lower we can still ship them directly to your address.Individuals prohibited from possessing firearms and ammunition under the gun control act of 1968 may not purchase or possess 80% lowers.
Do 80% Lower purchases have to go through an FFL?
No, in most states you do not have to go through an FFL to purchase an 80% lower receiver. You can still purchase 80% lowers online as usual and get them shipped directly to your home. The ATF recently issued additional guidance on the topic which can be found here. However, portions of this guidance are no longer applicable to 80% Arms and its customers. An injunction granted to 80% Arms and its customers allows us to once again ship jigs and lowers to you. You can read the injunction here.
Are you still shipping lowers without serial numbers?
Yes, all of our lowers are manufactured, and are still shipping, without a serial number.
Do I need to Serialize my upper, BCG, or other firearm components?
No, the ATF Rule was intentionally written vaguely to cause confusion on legality regarding firearm parts and accessories. At this time, a serial number is not required and we are continuing to ship uppers, BCG’s and other firearm components without serial numbers.
When will jigs become available again?
EFFECTIVE 11/3/22 WE ARE ABLE TO RESUME SALES AND SHIPPING!
What items are you allowed to sell?
EFFECTIVE 11/3/22 WE ARE ONCE AGAIN ABLE TO FURNISH YOU WITH ALL OF OUR QUALITY PRODUCTS JUST AS WE HAD PRIOR TO THE ATF BAN!
What is happening with FED EX/ UPS?
UPS (United Parcel Service) canceled the commercial accounts of any and all companies that ship firearm parts or accessories. Thankfully for us we have a great team that stays on top of companies history with the firearm industry and saw this coming eventually which is why we ONLY ship using FedEx and USPS.
UPS’s decision to cancel commercial accounts caused quite a stir in the firearm industry ultimately leading to mass confusion to many customers and companies alike. In our decade of using these companies, we have never heard of a package being seized in transit. You can rest assured knowing that any orders from us will not be compromised.
