I read on the forums about Golden Tiger or other Chinese ammo and such yet I never see it at the stores. Is it outlawed and whats available is preban ?

Chinese ammo was banned from importation long ago, however it is sold on the secondary market quite often.

The only Chinese your going to find is from individuals who bought it long ago, not imported and sold through distributors

No pistols, rifles, ammo. Shotguns are allowed.

Did the law include ammo components like empty unprimed cases or bullets? I never did see the actual EO, though AK,s rifles etc are obvious.

ďSportingĒ gunís are allowed LOL. For some reason they think criminals donít use shotguns. Well, they donít very often, but they donít use rifles very often either.

Of course it doesnít make sense, because none of the gun laws really do. It was based on perceived fears of the time. There was that North Hollywood bank robbery shootout that used Norinco AKís, but that was a few years after the ban (they used AR-15ís too).

Your decades late for Chinese ammo.

Golden Tiger-making plant (Vympel) is close to border with China, but it is in Amursk, Russia.

My Hawk 982 is superior to recent production Freedom Group Rem 870s. All forged steel, no MIM, even OEM furniture feels stronger too.

Yes.

Pretty much everything is banned except their shotguns and cheap optics.
