Here's the letter from Q's attorney:

The Letter notified Q that the Honey Badger pistol with arm brace is in fact a rifle with a
barrel under 16 inches in length and thus subject to the National Firearms Act. Q disagrees with
that conclusion and notes that both it, and thousands of its customers, have always regarded this
firearm to be a pistol based on its reading of the law and ATF classification letters in the public
domain. As addressed below, Q also believes ATF’s actions violate procedural norms and will
have a major impact on the firearms industry. Notwithstanding these concerns, Q greatly
appreciates the professionalism and courtesy exhibited by the Boston Field Division and intends
to fully cooperate with ATF to amicably resolve this matter. As such, we have submitted the two
requested firearms for evaluation and outlined a proposal for addressing the firearms already
owned by the public.

You may be right, I may be crazy, but it just may be a lunatic you're looking for

It's not an SBA3, it's a "proprietary pistol brace" made by SB Tactical. It's collapsible and from the pics it appears to exceed the ATF's arbitrary "length of pull" limit. Measured precisely with my Mk1 mod0 eyeball

According to the owner of Q the ATF measured the LOP at an angle to get the out of spec length. So rogue ATF field agent stirring up shit for an October surprise? /tinfoil

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives has temporarily backed off criminalizing a type of gun used by 3-4 million people in the United States until after the presidential election, likely stoking the issue of gun control.

The New Hampshire maker of a popular styled AR-15 “pistol” today said that the ATF suspended its surprise decision made last week to outlaw the gun, called the “Honey Badger” pistol.

“We believe this 60-day suspension is an effort to put manufacturers, distributors, and consumers at ease, and to postpone the issue past the presidential election in hopes that a new administration will take a different view,” said the company, adding, “using licensees as political pawns is unbecoming of a regulatory agency and ignoring the underlying evaluation in this letter is simply irresponsible. Q will not succumb to this level or irresponsibility. Therefore, without further clarification from ATF on their evaluation, we will not continue manufacturing the Honey Badger Pistol.

It is obscene that "the election" would have any thing to do with this nonsense.

BATFE: the ultimate troll.

The government has been arbitrarily telling us what kind of firearms we can own for far too long. Apparently, no one ever took into consideration the phrase "shall not be infringed" when questioning the Constitutionality of such laws & regulations.
