CMMG is opposed to this rule which is a complete reversal of prior guidance by the ATF. In response to the ATF’s final rule, CMMG will continue to do our due diligence in notifying you, the people, of changes in the industry and this situation. CMMG will also continue to stand beside our partners in the industry to create a cohesive response and unified stance to challenge this unjust rule.
In the interim, due to the uncertainty and the advice of legal counsel, CMMG is taking action to comply with the rule, as we understand it, and are temporarily suspending shipment of pistols with stabilizing braces. With this change in production, rest assured we are actively fighting this ruling.
