    That's fucking retarded. Nowhere else in the world for any other product does this shit work like that. If you blow the engine in your car, it is THE most important part of the vehicle. It is the "performance" part. But you can drop a new one in there without having to "register" a new vehicle with the DMV, get a new tag, and pay a new ad velorum tax. For that matter, you could probably replace EVERY part of the vehicle without doing so.

    If your house gets blown down by a hurricane or tornado, you rebuild the whole thing...you don't have to get a new address and pay a new tax.

    I don't think he's saying it's the most important part, he's saying that with nearly ANYTHING else, you could have the entire thing rebuilt without having to pay taxes again.

    It's insane that if something happens, and I have a baffle strike that winds up blowing out the front of the can, I'm fucked.

    previously, I could send it back, get it rebuilt (it may cost me some money to the mfg, but thats all)

    now, on top of any money the mfg requires for the repair, I have to pay a NEW $200 tax for an item that has already had the NFA tax paid.

    Basically, except for some endcap strikes and some baffle strikes, cans cannot be repaired.

    couldn't you make the inards completely replaceable and then just have an outer "sleeve" that gets the serial#?

    That's how a fair amount of them are. But a baffle strike on a .30 cal can is probably going to do a bit more damage to the can than a .22LR can.

    Yes. Most pistol and some rifle cans are made just like this. But if you have a baffle strike on a rifle can, it's possible for it to damage the tube. If the tube is damaged, basically, you can't repair it. You would need to replace it. Replacing it is going to cost you a $200 tax stamp.

    If the can is welded together, it becomes much more difficult, and still results in a new tax stamp. For the same item.
