Not if the rumor has been going around for the last week, which it has. Something to do with steel core bullets I think.

Does that mean M855 is banned too? or does this have to do with importation laws and steel penetrators?

The whole reasoning for this is some has started to produce a 5.45 pistol. Therefore according to at regs. It shuts off any more mil surp steel core ammo to the US as it can be fired from a pistol. https://www.thebangswitch.com/import...n-7n6-5-45x39/

M855 is specifically exempted from the AP ban (as well as M-193 and M-2 AP)

They have made AK74 pistols for at least a couple of years, I don't get why all of a sudden this becomes a factor? Unless Dear Leader, his lackey Eric Holder and the ATF all decided to just do it to shooters out of spite? Naah, that couldn't happen, could it?
