I recently emailed Vault distribution in regards to the whole issue with threading barrels and warranty. Official word is that we can now take our RFBs to Dlask Arms to be threaded WITHOUT voiding the warranty so long as you keep the receipt for the job and provide a copy if ever you need warranty service.

great news for me as i've wanted to install a comp/brake since day 1, and i figured some of you here might have wanted to know.

Will the gun still be legal?
I know the Canadian models can't have a threaded muzzle when they are sold because of some law.
That law wouldn't make much sense if so.:nuts:
Like you can't buy a machine-gun, only a semi-auto; but converting one to full-auto was legal:confused:.
Some laws are silly anyway:teehee:.
An un-threaded muzzle doesn't make a rifle a single bit less deadly:rolleyes:.

First off you cannot convert any gun to full auto anymore. You can buy one that is transferable or get a FFL and an SOT and a LEO Letter and own what you want.

Your threaded barrel would fall under the 922r ATF Ruling.

I know when I threaded my Beretta Storm 9mm Barrel I had to swap parts out to be compliant with 922r. I ended up sending the lower to Sierra Papa and they changed the necessary parts to US made parts.

On my HK USC to UMP conversion. I SBR'd it and also have the necessary US made parts.

I think the unthreaded barrel on the Canadian model RFB's had more to do with US export restrictions than Canadian law. For the same reason the canadian models I believe say they are chambered in .308 Win instead of the 7.62 stamped on the US models...

This^ the non threaded barrel had no basis in Canadian laws or regulations, only US export restrictions.

No i have not contacted Dlask for a quote yet. Vault's response came Friday evening so i have to wait till Tuesday (Monday is a stat) to ask.

This makes about as much sense as a rule that we can only ship them cars without hubcaps that must be installed by the dealer:nuts::headstratch:.
Just having trouble wrapping my head around the logic involved:confused:.

It has something to do with the US exporting "assault" or "military" weapons. Bunch of funky definitions like being chambered in a NATO callibre, flash hiders, ect. Yo need state department approval to export these, but it is easier to export "sporting" firearms. So if you change enough of the prohibited features you can classify the firearm for "sporting" use...
