    Semiautomatic Assault Weapon (SAW) Ban

    QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

    September 13, 2004


    Q: What was the semiautomatic assault weapon (SAW) ban?

    A: The SAW ban was enacted on September 13, 1994, by PL 103-322, Title IX, Subtitle A, section 110105. The ban made it unlawful to manufacture, transfer, or possess SAWs. The law defines SAWs as 19 named firearms, as well as semiautomatic rifles, pistols, and shotguns that have certain named features. The ban was codified at 18 U.S.C. § 922(v). SAWs lawfully possessed on September 13, 1994 were not covered by the ban. There also were certain exceptions, such as possession by law enforcement.

    Q: Was the SAW ban permanent?

    A: No. The law enacting the ban provided that it would expire 10 years from the date of enactment, which was September 13, 1994. Therefore, effective 12:01 a.m. on September 13, 2004, the provisions of the law will cease to apply.

    Q. What was the Large Capacity Ammunition Feeding Device (LCAFD) ban?

    A: The LCAFD ban was enacted along with the SAW ban on September 13, 1994. The ban made it unlawful to transfer or possess LCAFDs. The law generally defined a LCAFD as a magazine, belt, drum, feed strip, or similar device manufactured after September 13, 1994 that has the capacity of, or can be readily restored or converted to accept, more than 10 rounds of ammunition. The ban was codified at 18 U.S.C.
    § 922(w). As with SAWs, there are certain exceptions to the ban, such as possession by law enforcement.

    Q: Was the LCAFD ban permanent?

    A: No. The LCAFD ban was enacted by the same law as the SAW ban. Therefore, like the SAW ban, it expires 10 years from the date of enactment. Therefore, effective 12:01 a.m. on September 13, 2004, the provisions of the law will cease to apply.

    Q: What provisions of the Gun Control Act (GCA) besides the bans contained in sections 922(v) and (w) are no longer effective?

    The definition provision for “semiautomatic assault weapon”, codified at 18 U.S.C. § 921(a)(30).


    The penalty provision for violating 922(v), codified at 18 U.S.C. § 924(a)(1)(B).


    The penalty provision for violating 922(v) during the commission of a crime of violence or drug trafficking offense, codified at 18 U.S.C. § 924(c)(1)(B);


    The requirement that SAWs and LCAFDs manufactured after September 13, 1994, be marked with a date of manufacture next to the serial number, codified in 18 U.S.C. § 923(i). (ATF regulations (27 C.F.R. § 478.92(a)(2)) implement section 923(i) and require, effective July 5, 1995, SAWs and LCAFDs manufactured after September 13, 1994 to be marked “Restricted law enforcement/government use only” or, for weapons manufactured for export, “For export only”. These requirements also are no longer in effect.)
    Q: Does expiration of the ban affect records maintained by licensed manufacturers, importers and dealers?

    A. Yes. Federal firearms licensees are no longer required to collect special records regarding the sale or transfer of SAWs and LCAFDs for law enforcement or government sales. However, existing records on SAWs and LCAFDs must still be maintained for a period of 5 years. Moreover, records of importation and manufacture must be maintained permanently and licensees must maintain all other acquisition and disposition records for 20 years.

    Q: Are SAWs and LCAFDs marked “Restricted law enforcement/government use only” or “For export only” legal to sell to civilians in the United States?

    A: Yes. SAWs and LCAFDs are no longer prohibited. Therefore firearms with the restrictive markings are legal to transfer to civilians in the United States and it will be legal for non-prohibited civilians to possess them. All civilians may possess LCAFDs.

    Q: Does the expiration of the SAW ban and the LCAFD ban affect importation?

    A: LCAFDs are no longer prohibited from importation but they are still subject to the provisions of the Arms Export Control Act. An approved Form 6 import permit is still required. Non-sporting firearms are still prohibited from importation under sections 922(l) and 925(d)(3) of the GCA. Because the vast majority of SAWs are nonsporting, they generally cannot be imported.

    If an importer has an approved Form 6 import permit for LCAFDs with a restriction stamp on it related to the ban, the importer may import LCAFDs using the permit and disregard the restriction stamp. Importers may apply for a new permit if they prefer. If an importer has an approved Form 6 import permit for SAWs with a restriction stamp on it related to the ban, the importer should comply with the restriction because the firearms most likely are nonsporting.

    Temporary importation of SAWs and LCAFDs is now lawful under the provisions of Title 27, CFR, section 478.115(d) because firearms that are temporarily imported are not required to meet sporting purpose requirements.

    Q: Does the expiration of the SAW ban change laws regarding assembly of nonsporting shotguns and semiautomatic rifles from imported parts?

    A: No. The provisions of section 922(r) of the GCA and the regulations in 27 CFR 478.39 regarding assembly of non-sporting shotguns and semiautomatic rifles from imported parts still apply.

    Q. Does the expiration of the SAW ban affect firearms under the National Firearms Act?

    A: All provisions of the National Firearms Act (NFA) relating to registration and transfer of machineguns, short barreled rifles, weapons made from rifles, short barreled shotguns, weapons made from shotguns, any other weapons as defined in 26 USC section 5845(e), silencers, and destructive devices still apply. However, it is now lawful to possess NFA firearms that are also semiautomatic assault weapons, as long as all provisions of the NFA are satisfied.

    USAS-12 and Striker12/Streetsweeper shotguns are still classified as destructive devices under ATF Rulings 94-1 and 94-2 and must be possessed and transferred in accordance with the NFA.

    Q: Can tribal law enforcement entities now possess SAWs and LCAFDs?

    A: Yes.

    Q: Does the expiration of the ban affect State law?

    A: Expiration of the federal law will not change any provisions of State law or local ordinances. Questions concerning State assault weapons restrictions should be referred to State and local authorities.

    Q: Whom should I call if I have a question?

    A: Your local ATF office.

    cant wait to get my hands on the flood of high cap magazines, ak47's, and other guns that have been oh so hard to come by over the last ten years... :rolleyes:


    This is a victory for all the responsible gun owners...

    it never stopped the criminals, not like a flash hider or grenade launcher or folding stock was a popular item in the first place...

    Unless you know something i don't, the only AR's banned behind these lines are the Colts... :confused: CSP Firearms says the CT ban only covers the rifles specifically named in the state ban.

    I love to say this countless times to everyone i come in contact with: laws only keep an honest man honest. to the person that thinks that this makes life any worse, remember, thugs and terrorists already have these weapons. gun freedom in america just means when someone pulls out his stolen machine gun, as he is breaking into your house, you can pull your two uzis out and laugh at him, because yours are legal, he is in your house, and you get the undiscriminated priveledge of unloading lead into his sorry ass.
