The Can Cannon has been acquitted by the BATF! X Products is pleased to announce the re-launch of the infamous Can Cannon soda can launching system for the AR-15 rifle. The Can Cannon has passed the BATF rubber glove test with flying colors. This means that the Can Cannon is 100% street legal and can be attached to an AR-15 lower receiver without being classified as a short barrel rifle or short barrel shotgun. For existing customers this entails a simple part swap, which we’ll be providing free of charge. New customers won’t have to do anything, our re-designed Can Cannon will feature our design changes right out of the box. Here’s the meat and potatoes of the BATF approval letter:
“Our examination determined that the aforementioned design features, combined with thepresence of a permanent and substantial blocking feature located directly in front of the barrel chamber, prevents the chambering of a commercially available .223 Remington caliber ammunition cartridge. FTISB found the submitted sample is designed to only accept a 5.56mm or .223 Remington caliber blank cartridge and the “barrel portion” of the “Can Cannon” incorporating a chamber, is not a firearm barrel.
As a result, if the submitted Can Cannon were assembled to an AR-type firearm receiver incorporating a shoulder stock, this assembly or aggregate of parts would not constitute a “firearm” as defined in the NFA, 26 U.S.C 5845(a)(5). Such an assembly of either of the aforementioned scenarios is lawful.”
