    I am wondering if someone can tell me EXACTLY what and how they filed the forms for a SBR? I checked the ATF website and found the appropriate form, but want to make sure it's correct. I have read that applications are denied for small reasons like sending in the form printed on two pages vs. one etc. and I want to avoid delays. Thanks.

    Hey Jeep,
    PM Major Malfunction, he is well versed in CLs III and SBR process. He is a dealer (and my best bud from the army). He will be glad to help you out.

    Not trying to be thick, but why is that any better than a .45, or a shotgun, up close?:confused:

    Even from a short barrel, 5.56 ballistics are better than pistol caliber. I am looking for manuverability and want to have the range and accuracy of a carbine. Despite it's shorter barrel, still better range and accuracy than a shotgun, that's all. For me, a short barrel carbine is far superior to a shotgun or handgun.

    JeepCreep,

    I'm a Class 3 dealer - I can walk you through what "right" looks like. It would be WAY easier to do it over the phone, though.

    Please go to my website: www.major-malfunction.com and use the contact phone number.

    So, are you guys talking about specific models of rifles? Does the SBR apply mainly to so-called "assault" rifles only?

    Sbr

    Sporting firearms must 26" overall length and rifles must have a 16" barrel, shotguns a 18" barrel.
    SBR: Short barreled rifle..barrel under 16"
    SBS: Short barreled shotgun..barrel under 18"

    Both are regulated under NFA : National Firearms Act and you pay a one time $ 200 transfer tax to own in a legal state.
