Probably a way to keep the wolf from the door Bri

What I mean by that is that if it leaves the factory sub 12fpe with AT fitted then it isn't 'capable' of exceeding 12fpe
Looking at the law then yes.

I don't see what the problem is with telling someone how to remove it themselves either, it's not a legal requirement to have it fitted and there are plenty of threads all over the forums on how to undo a few bolts and swap out a spring on a springer (which could quite possibly put the gun over the limit) so what's the difference?
Legally I think it could be seen as offering instruction, the same the problem those lads had making 3D parts available to print a gun.
