Soda-Gate 2015: X Products Can Canon Update

We know that your dreams of blasting a can of Budweiser across the range like an M-79 Blooper were crushed with the latest decision by the BATFE (well, unless you have a registered NFA weapon at least).

Here's the latest from X Products:

RE: Soda-Gate 2015

Much has been discussed in the media as of late regarding the legality of the Can Cannon based on the recent BATF determination letter. These are the facts. Prior to releasing the Can Cannon for sale, X Products proactively requested a determination from the BATF. X Products proceeded with sale of the Can Cannon only after the BATF had determined that the Can Canon was; 1) not a weapon and 2) not a destructive device. Due to the popularity of the Can Cannon and the variety of Can Cannon accessories that are due to be released in the near future, X Products requested a second determination from the BATF. We wanted to make sure our customers don’t run into any legal issues when attaching the Can Cannon to an AR-15 lower receiver. A second determination request isn’t standard practice, but with a product such as the Can Cannon we felt it was the responsible thing to do. Based on the second determination from the BATF, X Products has submitted a modified design to the BATF to address any compliance issues. We respect the BATF and we are working with them closely to ensure that cans (and other ridiculous objects of your choosing) may fly freely again in the near future. We appreciate the support we’ve received from the community and look forward to providing awesome accessories for the Can Cannon in the months ahead.
