Determination of the Tier5® MBC®

Determination of the Tier5® MBC®

We contacted the International Firearms Specialist Academy (IFSA) and asked them for a legal determination of an AR15-type firearm fitted with the Tier5® MBC®.  The IFSA made the determination that an AR15-type firearm fitted with a Tier5® MBC® changes the method of mechanical operation of a self-loading firearm, to a manually-loaded firearm.  In short, an AR15-type firearm fitted with a Tier5® MBC® is no longer a semiautomatic firearm.  The IFSA Determination Letter is available below or in the provided link.  IFSA Determination Letter

The IFSA is a nationally recognized organization that are experts in the field of firearms and ammunition.  They provide training to law enforcement personnel, attorneys and industry professionals and offers the ability for a firearm professional to become accredited as a Certified Firearm Specialist (CFS).  Such accreditation serves as the benchmark by which firearm professionals may be gauged.  CFS certification establishes that a person is a competent professional in the field of safe and accurate firearm and ammunition handling and identification.
