No referrals were generated as no manufacturing had yet occurred and due to lock of federal prosecutorial merit; no straw sales were disclosed. Although the one violation of 27 CFR 478.99(a) could merit a recommendation of Warning Conference, a recommendation of Warning Letter only and Recall is being made for the following reasons: the violation was not willfully committed as the FFL mistakenly had believed that only AR-style receivers and handgun receivers could not be transferred to an out-of-state purchaser; no derogatory information was disclosed on the purchasers or the firearms; the overall percentage of violations was low, the FFL is generally well educated regarding, and voluntarily compliant with federal law and regulation; and all required/suggested corrective actions were readily addressed by the FFL. Hardcopy Inspection report and file being forwarded to DIO for Division-level review.
