RE: The tariff classification of BB projectiles from Taiwan or China.

Dear Mr. Chu:

In your electronic ruling request dated October 3, 2006, you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of Airsoft Solutions, Monterey Park, CA.

The merchandise is described as a biodegradable BB for use with airsoft guns. The BB is composed of powder encased in a hard shell that dissolves when it comes in contact with moisture.

Powder or liquid-filled projectiles, containing no explosives, pyrotechnics or propellants, delivered by airsoft guns that use compressed air or CO2 as the delivery propellant are classifiable in subheading 9306.30.4060, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for “Bombs, grenades, torpedoes, mines, missiles and similar munitions of war and parts thereof; cartridges and other ammunition and projectiles and parts thereof, including shot and cartridge wads: Other cartridges and parts thereof: cartridges and empty cartridge shells, Other.” The rate of duty is free.

Duty rates are provided for your convenience and are subject to change. The text of the most recent HTSUS and the accompanying duty rates are provided on World Wide Web at http://www.usitc.gov/tata/hts/.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of the ruling or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist Tom McKenna at 646-733-3025.
