Thank you I have emailed you in concern and called several times trying to get some answers over the past month and I have been unable to. I spoke with the ATF about the welding modification and they told me to include a letter to that affect with the rifle. I emailed this letter to Frank in October and he said he would include it with the paper work. I am not asking anyone to break the law the rifle is to be sent to the US government if there is any problems with its modifications they will reject it and it will be destroyed. Posting this on a forum is not how I wanted to go about this but I have been unable to get any answers on this issue. The issue with the weld modification I have not been informed of until now, that has been the problem there is no communication between us and I do not know why.
