such a stupid rule.
Saiga's are one of the most popular shotguns for Open div shotgun competition, and have been for years.
The ATF doesn't care if it has a "sporting purpose"

Internet rumors suggest the saiga's are safe(for now), but ATF may ban import of Chinese Winchester 97 clones with bayonet lugs.
Ahhhh those dangerous bayonet lugs, gotta get them off the streets. I was almost bayoneted 3 times this week

All just rumors, guess we will have to wait for monday to be sure

You too?!?? The bayonet attacks around here are getting rediculous!! I got my wife a bayonet proof body suit.


Can I borrow someone's saiga? I want to go duck hunting, plus I've never shot one.

The wording is in the Gun Control Act of 1968.
United States Code: Title 18,921. Definitions | LII / Legal Information Institute

(4) The term “destructive device” means—
(A) any explosive, incendiary, or poison gas—
(i) bomb,
(ii) grenade,
(iii) rocket having a propellant charge of more than four ounces,
(iv) missile having an explosive or incendiary charge of more than one-quarter ounce,
(v) mine, or
(vi) device similar to any of the devices described in the preceding clauses;
(B) any type of weapon (other than a shotgun or a shotgun shell which the Attorney General finds is generally recognized as particularly suitable for sporting purposes) by whatever name known which will, or which may be readily converted to, expel a projectile by the action of an explosive or other propellant, and which has any barrel [/COLOR]with a bore of more than one-half inch in diameter; and
(C) any combination of parts either designed or intended for use in converting any device into any destructive device described in subparagraph (A) or (B) and from which a destructive device may be readily assembled.
The term “destructive device” shall not include any device which is neither designed nor redesigned for use as a weapon; any device, although originally designed for use as a weapon, which is redesigned for use as a signaling, pyrotechnic, line throwing, safety, or similar device; surplus ordnance sold, loaned, or given by the Secretary of the Army pursuant to the provisions of section 4684 (2), 4685, or 4686 of title 10; or any other device which the Attorney General finds is not likely to be used as a weapon, is an antique, or is a rifle which the owner intends to use solely for sporting, recreational or cultural purposes.


The (mis)interpretation of what is a legitimate sporting purpose is the The Attorney General's

Has the AG weighed in?

The article makes it sound like ATF makes the calls autonomously.

If they are going by that interpretation, all guns are destructive devices. That, the Gun Control Act of 1968, is a leaky boat and needs to be repealed!

I would like to know where exactly in the 2nd Amendment does it say anything about firearms must have a "Sporting purpose" ?
