Hey all, I am wanting to know about the Mossberg Shockwave, the Remington TAC-14 and TAC-13, and any others that I don't know about. As far as I can understand, these are classified as "firearms" by the BATFE and therefore are NOT NFA items despite having an NFA length barrel and OA Length. What I am curious about is whether an individual can make one of these on his own without using the NFA laws and tax stamp to do it. Lets stipulate that the individual uses every part that Remington or Mossberg uses on theirs, the exact model they use, cut the barrel to the exact length and then put a hand grip on it exactly like the ones on the factory models. Would the individual then be able to make his/her own SHOCKWAVE or TAC14 at home and it be classified exactly as they are when made by Remington or Mossberg? If not, why not? Did the BATFE carve out some kind of special exemption for manufacturers that allows them to make such a weapon and not have to have their customers send the required tax into the FEDS? I'm not planning on doing such a thing, I am just curious whether individuals can enjoy the same freedoms that corporations and manufacturers enjoy? What's your take on it? Can a citizen make his own Shockwave at home and not worry about anything? I don't think it's possible without paying the $200 tax and I wouldn't risk losing my ability to ever own and shoot a gun the rest of my life and going to prison to find out. I am curious what you all think about it though. Thanks and have a great week.
