Saiga Shotgun Importation Potentially Stopped

Some disturbing news was brought to my attention by Linoge over at Walls of the City. Cold Creek Armory has stated the following in a Facebook update:

We are hearing that the importer of the Saiga 12 shotguns has ceased importation while waiting for the official ruling by the ATF. There are a limited number of these firearms already in the pipeline for distribution and we will be getting as many as available to us just as soon as they are available. Call now – 865-966-4545 – if you would like to be put on the list.

It seems the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco Firearms Explosives and Everything Fun (ATF) have managed to stop the importation of Saiga shotguns without even needing to perform an official ruling. I really hate all that government agency.

I will be sad if Saiga’s shotguns end up joining my SPAS-12 on the verboten for import list.

  1. The good news is that Coal Creek indicated they would not be marking up any more than they normally do, though they are, of course, subject to the pricing whims of their providers.

    The bad news is that I am in no place to avail myself of whatever hardware is still in the pipeline. *sigh* You know something is wrong with a government when your budget does not allow you to keep up with everything they are wanting to ban…
