USA -(Ammoland.com)- The Can Cannon has been acquitted by the BATF! X Products is pleased to announce the re-launch of the infamous Can Cannon soda can launching system for the AR-15 rifle.
The Can Cannon has passed the BATF rubber glove test with flying colors.
This means that the Can Cannon is 100 percent street legal and can be attached to an AR-15 lower receiver without being classified as a short barrel riffle or short barrel shotgun.
For existing customers this entails a simple part swap, which we’ll be providing free of charge.
New customers won’t have to do anything, our re-designed Can Cannon will feature our design changes right out of the box. Here’s the meat and potatoes of the BATF approval letter:
“Our examination determined that the aforementioned design features, combined with the presence of a permanent and substantial blocking feature located directly in front of the barrel chamber, prevents the chambering of a commercially available .223 Remington caliber ammunition cartridge. FTISB found the submitted sample is designed to only accept a 5.56mm or .223 Remington caliber blank cartridge and the “barrel portion” of the “Can Cannon” incorporating a chamber, is not a firearm barrel.
As a result, if the submitted Can Cannon were assembled to an AR-type firearm receiver incorporating a shoulder stock, this assembly or aggregate of parts would not constitute a “firearm” as defined in the NFA, 26 U.S.C 5845(a)(5). Such an assembly of either of the aforementioned scenarios is lawful.”
