      921:
      (10) The term "manufacturer" means any person engaged in the business of manufacturing firearms or ammunition for purposes of sale or distribution; and the term "licensed manufacturer" means any such person licensed under the provisions of this chapter.
      (2) in paragraph (10), by adding at the end the following: “The term ‘manufacturing firearms’ shall include assembling a functional firearm from a frame or receiver or molding, machining, or 3D printing a frame or receiver, and shall not include making or fitting special barrels, stocks, or trigger mechanisms to firearms.”;
      Trying to decipher the bill from the way they have it listed as just amendments is a PITA and I'm guessing it's that way on purpose. Trying to figure out whether the above actually applies to a home builder.



      Rabbit hole:

      921:
      (3) The term "firearm" means (A) any weapon (including a starter gun) which will or is designed to or may readily be converted to expel a projectile by the action of an explosive; (B) the frame or receiver of any such weapon; (C) any firearm muffler or firearm silencer; or (D) any destructive device. Such term does not include an antique firearm.
      The definition of "explosive" always catches my attention in this context. Technically, an explosion and burn are not the same thing. Deflagration vs. detonation. My understanding is traditional black powders burn rapidly and wouldn't meet the definition of an 'explosive' when used in a firearm, but modern powders may or may not meet the definition of an explosive. Most reloaders talk about powders in terms of 'burn rate', and if you burn powders side by side there are definitely differences in how quickly they burn. But does a primer merely 'ignite' modern smokeless powder, or does it act as a primary charge and 'detonate' it? No idea if "explosive" is legally defined elsewhere in relation to 921. If it isn't, then that opens a semantic can of worms.

      This article specifically mentions 'gunpowder in a firearm' as an example of deflagration, so under that explanation, firearms do not necessarily expel a projectile by the action of an 'explosive'. Maybe. The rapidly burning powder might meet the definition of an 'explosion' even though gunpowders are not 'an explosive'.

      No idea if this applies.

      841
      (d) Except for the purposes of subsections (d), (e), (f), (g), (h), (i), and (j) of section 844 of this title, “explosives” means any chemical compound mixture, or device, the primary or common purpose of which is to function by explosion; the term includes, but is not limited to, dynamite and other high explosives, black powder, pellet powder, initiating explosives, detonators, safety fuses, squibs, detonating cord, igniter cord, and igniters. The Attorney General shall publish and revise at least annually in the Federal Register a list of these and any additional explosives which he determines to be within the coverage of this chapter. For the purposes of subsections (d), (e), (f), (g), (h), and (i) of section 844 of this title, the term “explosive” is defined in subsection (j) of such section 844.
      Black powder and pellet powder....?

      More googling is saying that I might have it reversed. Black powder might be more of an explosive than modern smokeless powders.

      Maybe Norm DeGuerre can tell me what I'm missing in my legal definition of "explosive". Might just be the difference between the legal definition and scientific definition.

            That is a NICE looking bunch of meat!

            I can still find a use for my thumb, even though it no longer has a hole to finger.
