    The ATF has no constitutional authority to even exist. This crap has to stop.

    It is quite simply an abuse of federal authority. There needs to be a better oversight system so that this sort of thing doesn't happen. There are no standards on how to judge things. If ATF gets cold feet about something they make it illegal.

    One could go to home depot and put a plumbing pipe on their rifle, a "fake suppressor" and could be fined $250,000 or sent to prison for 10 years, or both. Sheesh.

    According to the ATF agent I spoke with a couple of weeks ago, there was a change made to the "CAN" between ATF approval and production.

    Couldn't find anything on ATI's website or BATFE website thru search or list of rulings (none for 2010).

    Ati from ar-15.com

    ATI / ATF SD Fake Suppressor Update - AR15.COM

    To all retail customers:

    On January 2010 American Tactical Imports Inc received official notification from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and explosives that the original barrel shroud (aka: fake suppressor) supplied with your GSG 5 SD model must be replaced. It has been determined that this shroud is regulated under the National Firearms Act. American Tactical will provide a replacement shroud at no charge for each GSG 5 SD model sold or currently in inventory.

    Consumers in possession of a GSG 5 SD model with the original shroud in place on the firearm are now in violation of the NFA. To avoid continued violation of the NFA, ATI asks that all persons in possession obtain a replacement shroud as soon as possible. We anticipate arrival of the new shrouds to begin by the middle of February 2010.

    IMPORTANT: THE ORIGINAL SD MODEL SHROUD MUST BE RETURNED ACOMPANIED BY THE FIREARM SERIAL NUMBER BEFORE A REPLACEMENT SHROUD IS ISSUED. THE DIAMETER OF THE SD SHROUD IS 1-9/16”. DO NOT RETURN THE SMALLER CARBINE SHROUD.
    WHAT TO DO:

    If possible return your old shroud to the dealer where purchased and show him this notice. The shroud will be returned to ATI along with a list of serial numbers from the guns that the shrouds were removed. ATI will send replacements to the dealer for pick up at your convenience; ATI will be sending replacements as fast as logistics allow. If your dealer is out of business or difficult to reach, or you purchased your gun used, from a consumer, return the shroud directly by US mail or UPS to American Tactical Imports Inc. 100 Airpark Drive Rochester, NY 14624.
    PLEASE TRY NOT TO CALL US. We will provide comprehensive information on our web site www.americantactical.us , and www.ar15.com or by e-mail to atiexchange@americantactical.us

    REMEMBER, INCLUDE THE FIREARM SERIAL NUMBER WITH EACH SHROUD OR A REPLACEMENT WILL NOT BE ISSUED.
    This action IS NOT being instituted through any fault and is strictly due to NFA compliance. American Tactical will assume the responsibility to satisfy the requirements in an effort to minimize the impact on our customers and protect your investment.
    We at American Tactical Imports Inc. sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused by this unfortunate situation.

    Sincerely,
    Anthony DiChario
    President C.E.O. retailcandoc.021210

    The fake suppressor doesn't suppress anything,it covers a skinny barrel that looks about as sexy as a plucked chicken without it,(disclaimer)Anybody from alabama that thinks plucked chickens are sexy disregard the previous satement

    What a bunch of on the ATF's part. Approve it one year, declare it NFA the next...

    No crazier than the ATF ruling that quick release mounts on barrels for suppressors are suppressor parts and therefore suppressors themselves.

    I don't own one of these but I believe my first call or email would be to ATI. I find it a bit odd that the letter states:
    PLEASE TRY NOT TO CALL US. We will provide comprehensive information on our web site American Tactical Imports , and AR15.Com or by e-mail to atiexchange@americantactical.us
    and yet I can find no information, not even a mention of it, on their web site.
