Hint, if you have a firearm for more than 24 hours, it should accounted for in books.

If you are making money (even as a hobby), you are engaged in business and require a tax id and FFL.

That sir is a pistol there is no stock, and if it had a stock then it would be a sbr and would need the tax stamp.

Shotguns require a 18" barrel plus over length of 26" if you get the houge tamer pistol grip and the over all length is grater then 26" you are legal. You should be ok with the 18" barrel.

it looks great... however i am not sure what it woukld be considered legally. IHMO, you should be careful and research your local state, and federal laws

Someone ask a lawyer. I would, but do not live in the states. Never seen a gun like that though. Interesting.

No, shotguns fall under different rules than firearms with rifled barrels.

If you don't know the ATF rules, and don't have a gunsmithing liscense, you really need to be cautious about what you create.

A Handgun with a forward pistol grip and no stock is classified as an AOW (Any other Weapon). It requires ATF application, and registration and a tax stamp ($25 for AOW if I remember correctly).

A shotgun with a pistol grip needs to meet overall length requirements to be classified as a shotgun still, otherewise it would be a short barreled shotgun (SBS) which requires ATF application, $200 tax stamp, etc.

to further complicate things, each state could be different in what they allow with regard to ownership of SBS, SBR, AOW, full auto and supressed class firearms.

I would undo what you did to the firearm, and remove pictures. If you charged any money, give it back, because the government wants tax money for FFL related work for a profit.

This is not meant to be means spirited, but to protect you and others from future trouble.

If you like doing this kind of work, get in touch with the BATFE and see what it takes to get a liscense and keep things above board.

I would call it a pistol as well. But a vertical foregrip on a pistol creates a AOW. I was just surprised the BATFE ruled that this particular firearm was not considered an AOW. That ruling set a precedence.

but we have to look at what he started with and then ended up with. with a buttstock on the Circuit Judge and a 18.5" barrel that is most likely rifled. now the Judge pistol gets around the legalities by rifling the barrel and classifing it as a postol rather than a shotgun. the Judge with such a short barrel, if it wasn't rifled it would be classified as a SBS. this is from Rossi's website as to the classification of the Circuit Judge.

WARNING
1. The Rossi .45/.410 Circuit Judge is sold in North America only as a rifle.
2. No smooth bore versions of the Rossi .45/.410 Circuit Judge are imported or sold in North America.
3. Conversion of the Rossi .45/.410 Circuit Judge Rifle to a Smooth Bore Shotgun is impossible because there are
no parts available in the United States.
4. Due to the complexity of the firearm any conversion from its original configuration would have to be under the
supervision of a highly competent gunsmith.
5. Any changes made to any Rossi Firearm by anyone other than BrazTech LC, voids the warranty, and may prove
to be dangerous including serious injury or death.
6. Please note that the Rossi 28 Gauge Shotgun is sold as a smooth bore shotgun only. It may be illegal to sell in
various states or jurisdictions since it is a revolving cylinder shotgun – and is not rifled as is the Rossi .45/.410
Rifle.

Sharpshooter - this is known as a case of "Just because you can, maybe you shouldn't."
