    I wonder what Massachusetts will think of it. Looks a little more dangerous than those bump stocks they seemed so concerned about...

    IWI would seem to be a non-domestic brand, and as such subject to being delcared a "Destructive Device" due to it's being heavier, wider, and bulkier than a shotgun with a 'sporting purpose' (rolleyes).
    The saving grace of the Siaga is that it's imported in a 'sporting version', and the other shotguns in the same category are domestically produced.

    There's really no reason that all combat shotguns that are of a fundamentally different design than their sporting-heritage ancestors cannot be reclassified as "destructive devices" by BATF. They are firearms. They shoot projectiles through a bore that's over .50" wide. (Only the .410 caliber shotguns don't meet that standard; all the 12 and 20 gauge guns do, even 28 gauge). They can be reclassified by the Secretary of the Treasury as "non sporting" just the way that the USAS-12, Striker-12, and Street Sweeper were back in the 1990s.

    Of course. Nobody would ever consider a $1,000 Beretta O/U a "destructive device." Ya know, cause it looks so pretty and everything. :shakehead:

    According to the sub-text of the ATF's ruling..the whole 'some 23 gauge shotguns are DD's and other 12 gauge shotguns are not' was entirely subjective and based on physical characteristics other than caliber/gauge.
