Gunmaker Sues ATF, Saying Feds Wrongly Classified Its ‘Muzzle Brake’ a Silencer

A gunmaker is suing the ATF for claiming the company is selling a gun silencer.

Gunmaker Sig Sauer said that the ATF wrong classified its “muzzle brake” as a silencer.

“If classified as a silencer, no market exists for the subject device given that it will not silence, muffle, or diminish the report of a firearm and yet it would still be subject to the burdensome requirements set forth above as if it really is a silencer,” Sig argues through

Manchester attorney Mark Rouvalis and Virginia attorney Stephen Halbrook.

By classifying it as a silencer, sales will drop significantly because people won’t want to deal with the “required burdens” that come with a silencer.

It’s not just the “required burdens” that is the problem. Why would anyone want to pay $200 for a tax stamp for a “silencer” that makes the firearm louder and not quieter. Muzzle breaks, for the most part, make a firearm louder and not quieter.

The ATF already got their hand slapped earlier this year in US District Ct over classifying a muzzle break as a silencer based on looks and not performance.

Sig has a strong case IF the actual facts are examined.
