Did The ATF Determine Rare Breed FRT-15 Was A Machine Gun Before Examining It?

ATF Determines That The Rare Breed FRT-15 Trigger is A Machine Gun

MARTINSBURG, WV-(Ammoland.com)-Did the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) determine that the Rare Breed FRT-15 was a machine gun before The Firearms and Ammunition Technology Division (FATD) even had a chance to examine it?

On January 13, 2021, Intelligence Research Specialist (IRS) Rob Lopez sent an email including a RecoilTV YouTube video to Firearms Enforcement Officer (FEO) James Barlow. Rob Lopez found the video on a 4Chan message board thread. Barlow has not looked at the FRT-15 but copied embattled FEO Daniel Hoffman on the email. He believed that Hoffman had looked into the trigger.

Lopez asked Hoffman if the trigger would be a National Firearms Act (NFA) item. Hoffman wrote Lopez back informing him that the ATF Firearms Technology Industry Services Branch (FTISB) would likely consider Rare Breed FRT-15 a machinegun. Still, the department would need one before officially proclaiming the device a machinegun. Lopez asked if a case had been opened, but Hoffman did not know if there was an open investigation into the company.

On April 1, 2021, IRS Lopez also contacted Special Agent (SA) Michael Nuttal of the Tampa Field Office to inform the office about the Rare Breed website, which he believed was selling machine guns. The two men discussed options and decided to contact the Firearms Technology Criminal Branch (FTCB).

FATD did not move on the trigger until Lopez once again contacted Hoffman again on April 1, 2021. Lopez wanted to know if FATD received a Rare Breed FRT-15 for the determination. Lopez claimed that several concerned citizens had contacted the ATF about Rare Breed selling machine guns online. Lopez wanted to move forward and write a “lead” for the Tampa Field Office.

Hoffman told Lopez that the ATF did not have the trigger to examine. Hoffman did point Lopez to FEO David Smith with the FTCB, who read the patent information for the FRT-15. Smith is the FEO that eventually examined and determined that the trigger was a machine gun. But Smith’s reply email seems to insinuate that his mind was already made up.

Smith’s email reads: “Attached is the original US Patent #10514223, and the evaluation letter #307385 on at least the 1st generation of this device by the inventor. This device was classified as a combination of parts designed and intended to convert a weapon into a machinegun, and therefore a ‘machinegun’ under the NFA.”

Eight days later, on April 9, 2021, Smith would double down on his opinion that the Rare Breed FRT-15 was a machine gun in an email back to Lopez. Smith needed help getting a sample to test to rule that the trigger device was a machine gun officially. He said that FATD believes that it appears that the FRT-15 is a machine gun. Lopez informed Smith that the ATF was on a waitlist to acquire the trigger.

Smith’s email reads: “Is there anything you want us to include in the report? I will most likely use a lot of the language from the examination back in 2018. I will also include that based on your review from the blueprints, pictures and video, FATD believes it appears to be a machinegun BUT FATD will physically need to examine the trigger to make an official determination.”

On May 24, 2021, Smith suggested that if Lopez was still having issues getting the trigger from Rare Breed itself, the ATF should buy one off the secondary market and sent a link from Gun Broker. A suggestion Lopez took and purchased a trigger from a third-party website. At the same time, the trigger became available on the Rare Breed website. For some reason, the ATF could not complete the transaction through the Rare Breed site, so it relied on the secondary market only.

Lopez shipped the trigger to FATD via Fed Ex on June 2, and the Rare Breed FRT-15 arrived at the ATF Martinsburg location on June 4. Smith tested the trigger and reached the same conclusion that he and others in the ATF said he would even before examining the trigger. The Rare Breed FRT-15 is a machine gun.

On July 26, Special Agent (SA) Nuttal of the Tampa Field Office served a Cease-and-Desist order on Rare Breed, ordering the company to stop selling the triggers. The company has refused to comply with the ATF’s Demands. Rare Breed filed for an ex parte temporary restraining order (TRO) against the ATF, but the courts rejected the request.

On August 3, the company’s owner and attorney Kevin Maxwell filed for an injunction against the ATF in the Middle District Court of Florida. Rare Breed triggers remain on sale throughout the internet because the Cease-and-Desist only applies to Rare Breed, although this is highly likely to change.

The BATFE should have had its wings clipped a long time ago. Republicans run on being “pro 2nd Amendment,” but then don’t act that way when they are elected. As the BATFE gained power, they became more abusive. That could have ended in the 80s, but it didn’t. It should have ended in 2017, but it didn’t. Some Republican firearm owners screeched at anyone who criticized Trump for ordering the BATFE to classify bump stocks as machine guns. They first said Trump didn’t do it – that the BATFE was a “rogue agency.” When the presidential memorandum was produced, those… Read more »

Dave Baril has served in the US Marine Corps for over 18 years, deployed twice to Iraq, and is a gun owner.

But after a teenager killed 17 people in Florida last month — the deadliest school shooting to hit the country in over five years — he took his personal AR-15 rifle to a local police station and turned it in for destruction.

Tex, classifying AR’s as machine guns is already in motion, through litigation and the redefining of “receiver” and “readily” in the proposed rule change. Lawsuits are already claiming gun manufacturers are selling machine guns since AR’s can be modified. And the redefinitions in the atf proposal that closed comment period yesterday would also change the definition of a machine gun to include all semiautomatics, not just AR’s, as ANY semiauto can be modified into a full auto within an 8 hour workday with access to a fully functional machine shop.

Most of the arguments below are moot. The videos on the Rare Breed website extol automatic fire with their trigger. The problem is of their own making. If they wish it to be seen as a semi-auto trigger, they should demonstrate semi-auto fire – not burst fire, however achieved, as they do on their web site. Either the ATF is empowered, legally, to constrain the sale of weapons that fire rapidly and repeatedly as shown on the RB website or it is not. I think BATFE should be dissolved, but that’s not the issue. If they are legally empowered to… Read more »

He implies thwarting this thwarts rule of law. BS. What ATF does is illegal, unconscionable & tyrannical by statute, constitution & “natural law”. He puts regulatory-admin gun law by decree (at least in practice largely unconstitutional) & statutory gun law (mostly unconstitutional) over the Constitution. OBEY or be an anarchist. Maybe directly or indirectly infected with the ‘Christian’ misrep of Romans 13. It’s our right & duty to disobey & overturn tyranny, as Mayhew clarifies in a 1750 sermon enabling the American Rev0lution.

He then makes gun grabber arguments, ignoring first principles of liberty & 2A.

Whatever one’s view on this trigger – an administration which provided billions of dollars worth of advanced military weaponry to a terrorist organization, has zero moral authority to speak on “gun safety” much less impose rules on the rest of us.

The 2018 patent was determined to be a machine gun by atf in 2018, and the only difference bw that and the new model is a flat hammer and a hump on the trigger. The former model used a normal curved hammer and a flat trigger, raised slightly to contact the back of the hammer and force a reset. That determination was incorrect, as is the current one, as a conscious release and reapplication of force on the trigger is required to operate it; constant set pressure on the trigger will not work, nor will holding the trigger back like… Read more »

No kidding. Did you have trouble reading what I wrote? I said it was falsely determined to be a machine gun in both instances of patent and design. However, the fact they produced it using a design ALREADY determined to be a machine gun by the f squad sets them up for a huge lawsuit from customers. By the law, wrong as it is, ATF’s previous determination on the 2018 design means rare breed knowingly manufactured and sold a machine gun, even though any idiot can see it isn’t a machine gun per statute.

According to the Bill of Rights and the SCOTUS case on the NFA, U.S. v. Miller (1939), firearms befitting and beneficial to a militia are protected from government infringement, so yes, every citizen should indeed possess and be well trained in the use of their machine guns.

“Why mention the militia in the Second Amendment? In what way did it ever reduce ambiguity.” Well, you left out the question mark in order to increase the ambiguity, but I’ll answer it anyway. The militia is mentioned because the militia is any man or woman who cares to show up to protect their community in an emergency. As such, it becomes obvious even to a moron that they must have their own arms, since nobody will be there to equip them. The minutemen were just one such. Available to show up in one minute.
