The story I was told by the cop I originaly bought this off of. (and yes I know cops can be wrong too, and usually are) The Spas was ban from being imported by the assault ban, not owned. DD transfers on this weapon very by state and is not on the federal list. When I bought it it was transfered via FFL dealer like a regular shotgun here in MO. Street Sweepers, USAS, and a few other shotguns were put on the federal ban but this one slipped though, just cant be imported anymore. Like I said just what I was told.
