Thread: ATF Bans Electrical Igniters?

    Default ATF Bans Electrical Igniters?

    All
    I went to QuickBurst's web site today and got this message for all igniters.

    Due to recent developments with the ATF QuickBurst is no longer allowed sell igniters. The ATF classifies our igniters as low explosives and we are no longer allowed to manufacture or sell them.

    With luck, we will be able to manufacture igniters and offer them to LEUP holders in the future.

    E-matches have long been restricted to permit holders only, apparently ATF has decided that these igniters are closer in composition to regulated e-matches than to consumer-grade igniters.

    I'm glad to hear it's nothing new, although it still is irritating to see them remove the vendor's product which is meant for amateur rocketry!

    However, there is another "item" brewing in the background. From what I've been told and heard there may very well be a "consumer" ematch becoming available sometime this next year. No license required to purchase. I don't know much about it yet, but I know that the CPSC and ATF are in talks about this right now.

    Yeah,

    And i talked to the guy on the phone myself last friday. We were misinformed, they are not 1.4g ematches. They are a type of glow plug. I was told they will NOT work with the regular efire units that we have. So now we just keep looking.

    Dave,

    ah man, that's too bad. I was getting excited that they were gonna have something new to use with consumer products and our firing systems.

    Well back to the drawing board

    Glow plugs? I would use them if they were priced right.
