If you’re one of the many Americans who haven’t recently touched your AR-15 and realized that you still have a bump stock attached, you have to remove the bump stock and destroy it or turn it in.  This is a simple procedure, so don’t be intimidated about removing and destroying it.

In this How to Remove a Bump Stock Video, we will show you exactly how to remove a bump stock and what you need to do to destroy it or turn it in.  The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) has provided Destruction Instructions as well the ability to locate the closest ATF Office in your area.  At RW Arms, we’re doing everything we can to ensure all Americans are safe and compliant with all regulations.

Destruction Instructions

For destruction, regardless of manufacturer or model, a bump stock must be made incapable of being readily restored to its intended function by, e.g., crushing, melting or shredding the bump stock.

Bump stocks may also be destroyed by cutting, so long as the bump stock is completely severed in the areas constituting critical design features, denoted by the red lines in the specific model of bump stock destruction diagrams that follow.

The bump stock must be completely severed in each area indicated by the red line.

Destroying a bump stock using any other method may be legally insufficient, such that continued possession of the device may violate 18 U.S.C. 922(o).
