    Case in point, 7N6 was perfectly legal until some jackass made I pistol that chambered 5.45

    100% confident in steel core ≠ AP, unless BATFE changed the GCA today.

    For a good read, here’s the pertinent parts

    https://www.atf.gov/news/pr/armor-piercing-ammunition-exemption-framework

    Fairly certain on 5.7 specifics, but I’m not willing to say I’m 100% correct. According to the link above, AP can hinge on the firearm being a pistol, but doesn’t have to.

    And the 5.7 was originally conceived as an SMG cartridge, which may be where I’m pulling the SS190 memories from.

    That’s not the part I was questioning.

    This is more along the lines of what I was thinking. Would have been legal until FN released their pistol.

    Probably so; there’s rabbit hole to go down on the projectile type but I’m not versed well enough to wander down that path.

    push the take down lever from the right side, lock the slide open and turn the the down lever in the down position..........once you release the slide back to the closed position the slide only moves forward about a half inch and the slide comes off vertically.....nice.....
