Three Points...

POINT 1: The Reformation® line of firearms features Franklin Armory®’s Reformation® barrel technology.  Since the barrel does not impart spin on the projectile, it does not meet the definition of “rifling.”

POINT 2: Franklin Armory® has engineered fin and flare stabilized projectiles and ammunition for sub MOA performance in Reformation® barrels.  (Ammunition release date is still to be determined.)

POINT 3: Franklin Armory® has safely tested off the shelf ammunition in a Reformation® barrel and routinely achieved 3.5" @100 yards with white box ammunition.

ATF Classification...


ATF Firearms Technology - Industry Services Branch classified Reformation® as a non-rifle, non-shotgun in August of 2017.  Upon examination of a 7.5" barreled Reformation® variant with a forward vertical grip in November of 2018, ATF again concluded that Reformation® is not a firearm regulated under the National Firearms Act.  (More details available on our FAQ page.)
