    I doubt it with this device.

    That would make it a short barreled shotgun and would require registration under the NFA.

    I suspect in the future we will be reading about the ATF considering reclassifying short barrel over 26 inch firearms as an NFA weapon. Soon they will be taking comments.

    I just watched the TFB interview with Franklin Armory. Apparently this thing has lands & grooves BUT they are STRAIGHT. WTF? 4 moa at 50 yards

    straight grooves?

    I suspect these are going to sell as well as a "DIY vasectomy at home kit"

    With the lack of accuracy I could see gun ranges/clubs banning this gun before it even hits the market. I am sure the anticipated proprietary ammo is not going to be on the discount rack anytime soon. If this gun is as lack luster as the Franklin Armory Rep in the interview, it will make a Taurus look good.

    I hardly would consider the accuracy to be bad enough that it will be "banned from ranges." The mil-spec accuracy for an AR-15 is 4 MOA.

    4 MOA at 50 yards is 8+ inches at 100 yards. Add shooter error or flyers and now you're chopping away at the wooden target frames.
