Really? What is the point of this? I don't get it ...

It is so you can have a cool .45 caliber carbine.
It's help for them people that can't hit anything with just a handgun.
Some areas of the world you are required to register every firearm. A barrel assembly (as this) allows one to have the frame registered and still have different configurations or calibers.
That was the basis of the Omega system when Springfield Armory introduced here in the U.S. In Germany, the Omega was the Peters Stahl, and allowed different calibers for different competitions and still have one handgun.
I looked into a unit that made a 22lr pistol I have into a carbine the way this one does and the more I looked into it I found a set of ATF laws that says its ok to change a pistol to a rifle configuration but you cant turn a rifle into a pistol without NFA papers. So would this apply to these kind of units as well?
How would that even work? Wouldn't the whole damn thing on top of the lower frame, scope and all move back and forth every time you fired? Is that to heavy even to cycle a round?
The slide mechanism is housed inside the unit, the barrel, stock, fore-end, and all that good stuff don't move back and forth.
It's actually very simple. It's a mecahnical device designed to separate a fool from his money.
