The decision grants the motion for acquittal on the receiver charge. That's the interesting part about the ATF using an unconstitutionally vague and opaque process for creating quasi-rules, the part most of this thread is about.

It also denied the balance of the motion. I think it seems reasonable to conclude that assembling the all constituent parts of a firearm is the manufacture of that firearm. If you do that commercially, the federal government wants to license the activity. The defendant here admits that he sold completed firearms, so his motion on that charge was denied.
