Diablo 12ga sxs pistol

Recommended Posts

I bet you that thing shoots out some serious flames.  How do you not need an FFL to buy that?  It's apparently CA compliant too.

It uses black powder, no FFL needed.

Depends on how much BP you stuff in it. :lol:
I’d keep it around 50 gns of 2f I think. The Shotgun Nation review shooting it at 15 yards was silly. I think it’s a 10 yard gun max.

They claim it's legal in CA, but I can assure you it ain't. It is a handgun in appearance so calling it "any other weapon" does not cut it with the CA DOJ. It's  either a handgun or it's a long gun. There are no in-betweens here in La-La-Land.

 

It would be considered a "sawed of shotgun". You cannot by a Taurus Judge here or that S&W Governor. They are not allowed.

Because it is for shot, like a sawed off shotgun.

It's a muzzle loader, it doesn't take hulls/shells. Or am I misunderstanding what a muzzle loader is?

This was put out by the NRA twenty years ago.

 

 

NRA-ILA FAX ALERT

Phone: 1-800-392-8683 * Fax: 703-267-3918 * GROOTS@NRA.org

Vol. 4, No. 50 12/12/97

BATF CLASSIFIES SOME "IN LINE" MUZZLELOADERS AS "FIREARMS"

According to an Industry Circular sent out to all FFL
holders last week by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms,
muzzleloaders "with in-line firing mechanisms designed or
redesigned to use modern conventional firearm primers DO NOT meet
the definition of antique firearms, and are therefore now subject
to regulation as a "firearm
." The issue revolves around the
definition of "modern ammunition," in which BATF classifies a
primer, by itself, as ammunition. BATF is operating under the
premise that if a "modern primer" is used anywhere in the firing
mechanism, then the firearm is "modern," and thus, not subject to
the 1898 exemption for antiques or replicas. "Primers are not an
antique ignition system and are ammunition subject regulation,"

 

 

That thingy uses shotgun primers.

 

Sounds like ATF would say it's a modern firearm.

No, you are misunderstanding what CA classified as a sawed off shotgun. :D

If that were somehow a cartridge-shooting, BATFE-legal, SxS version of Mossberg’s Shockwave, I’d be tempted to get excited. 

 

But as it stands, I’ll just pass. I can have as much fun with my Bond and some creative BP loads.

Don't worry, after the Pyrodex has its way with that thing it will never work again.
