The GCA, § 922(r), prohibits assembly of certain semiautomatic rifles and shotguns from imported parts.  Also, the implementing  regulations contained in 27 CFR §478.39 include the stipulation  that "no person shall assemble a semiautomatic rifle or any shotgun using more than 10 of certain  imported parts, if the assembled firearm is prohibited from importation  under 18 U.S.C. § 925(d)(3) as not being particularly suitable for or readily adaptable to sporting purposes."

 Here is how it applies to our RMZ-26


FTISB has established a foreign-parts  list specific to some CZ-26 models, and Branch personnel have determined  that the following parts listed in 27 CFR §478.39 apply as follows:





1 .  Receiver

2.   Barrel

3.   Trunnion

4.   Bolt

5.   Trigger Housing

6.   Pistol Grip

7.  Operating Rod

8.  Trigger

9.  Hammer

10.  Disconnector

11. Buttstock

12. Forearm/Hand Guard

13. Magazine Body

14. Follower

15. Floorplate

16. Sear


Because certain semiautomatic rifles are currently  prohibited from importation, the assembly of such rifles using more than 10 of the above imported parts is prohibited under § 922(r).  However, assembly of a semiautomatic rifle using 10 or fewer of these imported parts is not prohibited under this section.


During the examination it was noted that the below imported items were used in the making of the submitted sample.


1.  Bolt

2.   Operating Rod

3.   Trigger Housing

4.   Trigger

5.   Disconnector

6. Buttstock

7. Pistol Grips

8. Forearms, Handguard

9. Magazine Body

10. Follower


 Accordingly, FTISB finds that in its current configuration, this semiautomatic  CZ-26 type firearm, in 7.62 x 25rnrn caliber, is made with no more than 10 of the above-listed imported parts; its manufacture, therefore, would not be in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 922(r).
