I did not just fall off the turnip truck yesterday, but I am clueless how this short barrel rifle, short stock rifle somehow got OKed by the BATF as a handgun?

I think anyone that thinks this is a handgun is goofy. Lol

I am going to buy one, only so I can have a short barrel rifle without paying the 200 dollar tax stamp. Hey, I am all for loopholes in the law. Why not?

Can any of you explain to me how this rifle with a short barrel and a front grip is a handgun, but I need to purchase a tax stamp to put a front hand grip on my Glock rail? Or extend the hand grip with a cheek rest, or shoulder rest on my Glock without a tax stamp? To do these mods to my Glock would be two tax stamps, a mountain of red tape, a six month wait, and constant monitoring by the feds!

The gov is way out in left field sometimes.

Going to pick one up in 44 mag.

If this thing is a pistol, I can grow wings and fly like a duck. Lol.

There are two guns in this photograph, and one clearly has no shoulder stock, and one does.

If I took the main stock off the Rossi, and bolted it, or duct taped it to my Glock, how many years in jail would I get?

If I took the front forearm stock off the Rossi, and placed it on my Glock, how many years in jail would I get?

Theres just a really stupid amount of regulations on altering handguns manufactured as handguns & same on long guns to handgun configurations but you'd have to look them up on the BATF.org sight cause i ain't smart enuff to remember them all :o
Rules Rules 'n more pointless rules :(

It's a handgun because it has no shoulder stock, and was manufactured that way. There is no law against a horizontal forearm on a handgun. VERTICAL front grips require a tax stamp.
The Glock stock is a shoulder stock on a handgun.

To be a rifle, it must be manufactured with the intent of being shoulder fired. The stock is so short on the mare's leg that the length of pull would make it unlikely or unintended for shoulder fire... Although some people would be able to...
