To do so legally you must register it as an SBR. If the receiver was manufactured for a rifle, it is always a rifle. You can put a 10" barrel on it, and remove the stock, but once the barrel length gets below 16"...you're a felon.

So i can put a 10" on as long as i take the stock off? I dont have to register it as a pistol? Then can i put a stock on after i pay $200 sbr tax?

If the lower was made and purchased as a pistol lower, then yes.

How do you know its pistol or not? Does it have to specify on the lower? So at this time i just have to go straight to sbr?

See page 2. Does NOT mean that you can put a buttstock on a T/C with a barrel under 16".

Sweeeeeet!

So to confirm I read that correctly. It is legal for me to buy a pistol grip and pistol barrel, convert my TC rifle to a pistol, and convert it back into a rifle at my discretion...

...and as long as it's never configured with the shoulder stock affixed and a barrel under 16"... It's good to go... Right?

Tack
