Rumors have been circulating that last two days that the BATF has stopped the importation of steel core 5.45×39 ammo. After reading this news on social media, I’m sure many of you fired up your browser and gave Google a thorough workout trying to find a copy of the official BATF letter that gives the smack down to cheap 7N6 ammo… and like me you were probably unable to find such a letter. That’s probably because such a letter doesn’t currently exist. The rumor stems from an importer who had filed a Form 6 to bring in a shipment of 7N6 surplus ammo from Russia. The form approval went well past 2 weeks, which is the normal time frame for a Form 6 to be approved by the BATF. The importer emailed the BATF to find out what was going on with this particular import request and received this email response back. - See more at: www.thebangswitch.com...
seems its just them trying to ban it under the pistol caliber rule that atf uses to get around alot of things as one gun was made in this caliber so now magicly now all ammo of that caliber is pistol now despite being mostly used in rifles - See more at: www.abovetopsecret.com...
Will this make AK74's more or less valuable in the US?
eta, Oh, it's just a special type of round, not all of them. nevermind.edit on 30-3-2014 by jessejamesxx because: (no reason given)
Apparently...BATFE has just recently banned the importation of 5.45x39 7N6 [steel core] Russian ammo. ATF slapped the hammer down, when somebody built a pistol that can shoot the 5.45x39 armor piercing round; which has nothing to do with current sanctions on Russia.
I'm not quite sure...but I believe ATF has also banned the sale of this type of ammo, here in the United States. Any verification of this, will be greatly appreciated by me.
