    Hey, I'm not completely sure if this is the right place to post this so if it's not I apologize.

    I'm making a 9mm with a 10" barrel. From what I understand under the NFA if I attach a stalk to the gun it will be considered a short barreled rifle instead of a pistol.
    I know that if I attached a muzzle brake that was 6" long it would bring the barrel to a legal length.
    Would this also be true if instead of a muzzle brake I used a fake suppressor. And if so would it have to be permanently attached?

    You really need to ask the ATF, because if I tell you yes and they say no then you go directly to jail, and do not pass go and collect $200.

    I kinda anticipated a response close to that. I wasn't necessarily going to really on just someone's word. But figured it would still be informative to ask. I'm sure I'm not the first person to have this problem

    I just went thru this. I suggest you make sure its a hair over 16" because if its any under its a large fine and jail time . Yes it would have to be permanently attached pinned and I suggest welded . Now the question I have for u is why go thru all this when it will still
    be 16" long ? Honestly its really pointless to do that , if u want a 10" barrel go thru all the BS pay the $200 wait the 6 months and get what u want

    I was planning on it, can't be too safe.

    As a pistol 10" was good, but as a rifle 16" doesn't bother me at all. Plus If I had 200$ to dump into a tax I'd pay it to a legit suppressor and weld that to it.

    Anyway, I just shot them an email to see what they say.
