From the article...
The upshot is that DDTC is labeling commercial gunsmiths as "manufacturers" for performing relatively simple work such as threading a barrel or fabricating a small custom part for an older firearm. Under the AECA, "manufacturers" are required to register with DDTC at significant expense or risk onerous criminal penalties.
The left are masters at INCREMENTALISM.

They're coming after guns, manufacturers, dealers, gunsmiths, ammo makers, retailers, etc in every way possible to make guns and gun owners the next social pariahs.

Remember what happened to smokers, and anyone who supported traditional marriage?...social outcasts, and victims of activist judges, making new 'law'.

First they came for the EPL guys, and nobody said anything because "What's an Eighty Percent Lower?"...

THAT's the real target of this, a market sector that they haven't quite been able to lockdown from Day One, along with the small-time local gunsmiths who can't afford all the costs of registering with the State Department to become an accredited and recognized International Merchant of Death like HK, FN Herstal and Glock.
Even those who profess support for the 2A (falsely), are totally committed to drying up every aspect of civilian ownership, through whatever tactics they think they can get away with.

We will not submit.
Some won't, but I fear most will roll over like a new puppy.

Especially when the government withholds Federal checks (SS, pension, etc.), and incentivize neighbors to rat out their neighbors.

The first step is to make as many gun owners as possible, criminals on the books.

Then they'll go after them at their own pace. Political opposition will be targeted first. The country club folks (Biden) shooting skeet at the club, will be last.

OK, read the DDTC link-thanks for posting-and I've got questions:
1. What does improve the performance beyond original capability mean? Theoretically, a bolt gun with a good barrel should put all the shots into the same hole. Or, does that mean that if you're replacing a shot out barrel does the replacement have to deliver similar lousy accuracy?

2. What does "machining" mean? Does finish reaming a chamber by hand qualify? OK, re-read the commentary and it appears it might.

3. Since the Senate never ratified the ITAR, why do we have to conform to it? Better question: can we be forced to conform to it? I would-Senate ratification lacking-think not.
I assume the answer is YES - you can be forced. Even if only when you come afoul of some other violation and are bagged for this.

The goal is criminalizing as many Americans as possible for use when needed.
