Default Single Action Exemption

Condor's "Roster Question" on this FFL forum pointed out something I was not aware of. I knew the ability to do a conversion of semi-auto pistol to single shot went away. I also knew the Single Action Exemption still exists. What I didn't realize was you could still convert a double action revolver to single action.

What do you FFL's think about this? I did not have a FFL when the ability to do a single shot conversion on a semi auto pistol was still valid. My opinion at the time was it was taking advantage of a "loophole" that was contrary to the intent of the law. I could easily argue the other side too though. Its not our job as citizens to figure out intent. Its only our job to follow the law as written. I didn't have a problem building a bullet button AR back in the day and those were also taking advantage of a loophole.

I'm not asking if you do these. I'm just curious as to your thoughts on legality and on getting sideways with DOJ.

If its single action its single action. Just because you do a little work on it doesn't change the fact the state allows you to SAE the sale.

Loopholes? Really? You should find a new profession.

So do you think that you should honor other loopholes, such as LEOs being exempt or intra-familial transfers?

As long as a transaction is legal we will do it.
