We have waited patiently for a response from the BATFE regarding the approval of the X1 Non-Firearm Launcher.
Yesterday we received a formal response. Based on the letter we must make a modification to the X1 before being fully approved as a Non-Firearm launching device. Although this may be discouraging to those who are patiently waiting, this is fantastic news that a single modification will change the determination and allow us to sell it to customers!
We are re-submitting a new sample and expect it to arrive to the Tech Branches office Feb 23rd. In general, it takes up to 6 months or greater for the BATFE to respond to submissions. We will try our best to get an expedited response but will assume based on past experiences that the 6-month clock starts Feb 23rd, pushing our release date out to late October.
Due to the intellectual information provided in the document we will not be publishing the response letter.
