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 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.)
