    How do you go about getting a SBR? Any age requirements or licenses?

    21 years old and go through the nfa registration process for the firearm you want to have become a sbr. Once you get your 200$ tax stamp then you can have your receiver engraved with the required info and then purchase your short barrel and assemble an sbr.

    Some manufacturers are offering factory SBR's, AAC & Spikes come to mind.
    This is the way I went so I wouldn't have to get any engraving done.
    You still have the usual NFA paperwork as JonM mentioned.

    The route i took was:
    Purchased a regular stripped lower and got it engraved with the name of my trust.
    Then assembled it with LPK and pistol buffer tube.
    Purchased a 10.5" upper receiver group and put it on my lower.
    Brought it to local metro and got it registered as AR15 pistol.
    Submitted the Form 1 with my trust and $200 check.
    For the time being while waiting for the stamp to come back, i could shoot it ;)
    When stamp comes back, swap the pistol buffer tube with rifle buffer tube with stock.

    Why i chose this route? Cos it was so much cheaper than buying an already built SBR from manufacturer. I got the joy of building the lower, choosing the parts and i could shoot it. Rather than it being kept at my LGS during the whole 6+ months.

    Most importantly i confirmed the legality of the steps i was going to take, by calling ATF and asking opinions from my LGS and someone in this forum. Thank's to that someone ;)

    Here is my AR15 Pistol:
