Glock Pistol/ Carbine
 
So I have heard that there is a set up where you could quickly break down a Glock and put the base into a carbine style rifle platform. I believe this would require an ffl to do so. Is there any truth to this? Any thoughts?

Yea that is what I was thinking. So if o read this right because it is not a gun there is no need for paperwork. Seems odd but I would love to have it for my G26 and keep it on my car/ trunk. Out of my price range for now but I definately would like to get my hands on one. Thanks for the response.

There's still the issue of what it is once your gun is attached to it. That may be considered a sbr and require proper licensing.

That's what I was thinking because when you change the the gun itself you may need an ffl or something similar. I need to read up on it more or head down to a local shop.

Agree. Just build a SBR and paying the same $200 tax stamp.
I don't know why, i never liked the idea of a Glock transforming to carbine rifle style like that. I believe it's about to $300-500?

From Mechtech's FAQ section:

Is is legal to convert the CCU back to the original pistol?

Yes. The BATFE recently published a ruling which clarifies this - here is the link: http://www.atf.gov/regulations-rulings/rulings/atf-rulings/atf-ruling-2011-4.pdf

There has been a lot of missinformation circulating to the effect that once the pistol lower has been asembled to a rifle configuration then converting back to the pistol constitutes 'making a pistol from a rifle' and thereby placing the pistol into the SBR (short barrelled rifle) class. Not so. Please see our Forum for even further clarification. It is the first post on the Forum so you don't have to spend time trying to find it.

500$ for that thing? Plus 500$ for the glock..so as long as my math is correct here that's 1000$ for a 9mm carbine? No Ty..

Might as well get a Draco AK SBR with tax stamp ;)

Invest the money in a Kel-Tec Sub2000 that takes Glock mags and you will have 2 guns.
