Field inspection performed 02/06-02/07/17; the licensee was issued a ROV for two conduct of business violations and a single recordkeeping/reporting violation. Although the licensee's failure to mark (with licensee name, city & state redacted firearms after assembly merits a Warning Conference by policy, it is alternatively recommended that the licensee receive the Warning Letter and Recall inspection for the following reasons: (1.) firearm traceability has not been wholly impeded as the firearms were assembled from already marked ( GCA -compliant) lower receivers; and (2.) the licensee’s absence of any compliance history. With DIO concurrence, a Warning Letter was generated and sent to the licensee (via certified post with return receipt) on 05/04/17, a Recall Inspection was also staged for compliance reassessment. No further action required at this time.
Based on the licensee’s compliance history and minimal number of firearms manufactured (from property marked receivers), I concur with the Area Supervisor's alternate recommendation of Warning Letter only and Recall inspection .
If an inspection uncovers regulatory violations, the licensee receives a report outlining these violations.
