    As referenced in the article maybe this will be the catalyst that propels the Hearing Protection Act to law. I personally could never use a Maglite for such a purpose it simply doesn't seem right somehow but that's just me.

    I can't say I'm surprised or even disappointed. SD Tactical has been selling those for a while, and they knew exactly what they were doing. It was just a matter of time before the ATF paid them a visit. Like Seamac says, I can only hope this scandal helps shed light to the idea of doing away with suppressors as class 3 items. I think getting SBRs off the list will be a lost cause, but suppressors should be easy enough now that the HPA has the momentum behind it.

    It has been known that the ATF was going after these guys selling "solvent traps" and other types of sketchy suppressor kits after they finished dealing with the 41P/F issue.

    So I suppose anyone who purchased one of these will now be considered to be in possession of illegal silencer parts. The ATF should have gone after these immediately rather than letting people spend their hard earned money and now they possess a outlawed device.

    That was going to be my back up plan for when all the suppressors sell out after the HPA passes. Oh well, looks like I'll have to just wait it out like 2013.

    Unlikely, there would be no way to verify the sale date of each individual part, only a general bill of sale. Each of the individual pieces will now be considered as potential parts with the "intent to construct" rules we are all familiar with here.

    I would assume that if the HPA were to become law, then SD Tactical could resume manufacture of these and even assemble them into completed suppressors. There will be a huge demand at that time.
