Bump Stock Destruction Instructions.
Washington, DC – -(AmmoLand.com)- What You Should Know?
Bump-stock-devices allow a semiautomatic firearm to shoot more than one shot with a single trigger pull. The new rule goes into effect 90 days from the date of publication in the Federal Register.
ATF has created a new page to discuss options available for current owners of bump-stock-type firearms to allow them time to get rid of them by the effective date of the final rule. Owners can destroy the device by either melting, shredding, or crushing it. To learn more about destroying the devices, read below or visit www.atf.gov/rules-and-regulations/bump-stocks/how-to-destroy
The Second Option For Owners Is To Turn Them In.
It is preferred that owners contact their nearest ATF office to make an appointment. To find the location of your nearest ATF office visit: www.atf.gov/contact/local-atf-offices. For destruction, regardless of manufacturer or model, a bump stock must be made incapable of being readily restored to its intended function by, e.g., crushing, melting or shredding the bump stock.
Bump stocks may also be destroyed by cutting, so long as the bump stock is completely severed in the areas constituting critical design features, denoted by the red lines in the specific model of bump stock destruction diagrams that follow.
The bump-stock must be completely severed in each area indicated by the red line.
Destroying a bump stock using any other method may be legally insufficient, such that continued possession of the device may violate 18 U.S.C. 922(o).
