SIG Sues ATF
Thi is news I’m both excited and anxious about, Sig Sauer is suing the ATF over classifying their MPX muzzle brake as an NFA silencer. The MPX semi-auto was planned to be released with a fixed muzzle device that is effectively a brake. The owner would be able to purchased a suppressor, which is the serial numbered part that acts as a sleeve and can be mounted. This gives the owner the short barrel with 16″ compliance and the option to add the suppressor without extending if from a fixed 16″ barrel, making it quite long for a sub-carbine.
