Re: Can I use the lower of a currently owned complete rifle for a SBR?

You can use your currently owned lower. You can make it into what ever caliber, length you want. However you have to be able to quickly convert it back to what ever you register it as. Also once its an SBR and you put a non SBR upper on it its still considered an SBR. So if you register it as a 5.5...

Re: Shortest, lightest silencer for SBR in 5.56?

<snip> Please don't get hung up on not having an SBR that doesn't shoot 1 MOA. Few can shoot 2 MOA anyway. Besides it doesn't matter if a SBR shoots 1 or 2 MOA, as long it shoots within the mil spec 4 MOA it's fulfilling its purpose (unless your wanting to brag on the internet). SBRs are meant to s...

Re: Getting checked for legal silencer and stamp

If you are on private property, the owner or his agent can demand that you produce your papers or leave. If you do not comply you may be arrested for trespassing. The only governmental agents that have the authority to DEMAND the paperwork is ATF. However, it is generally a good idea to avoid the ri...

Re: Has anyone on here actually "shot out" a silencer?

Back in the pre-Clinton days, I had a MAC11/380 with Sionics suppressor. I shot it enough that the suppressor got really loud and new wipes didn't help. Back in those days you could still get "silencer parts kits", so I got one and had a local SOT rebuild it. I sold all of my NFA stuff between Clint...

Re: New Open Letter form ATF

I'm still mystified by the complete disconnect between "shall not be infringed" and ANY firearm law.

Re: A question about moving firearms in a Trust

I have been unable to find a common carrier that allows me to ship what I want without an FFL being on one or both ends. I guess that means I fly or drive, or I have to get an FFL. Will the Curio & Relic FFL be good enough? If not, since ATF has decided that taking a beer from a friend for letting h...

Re: Springfield XDS-4.0 4" .45

I carry a XDS-45 3.3" and highly recommend it. By all accounts, there is no difference between the 3.3" and 4" other than the longer barrel and slide. The slightly longer sight picture and slightly higher projectile speed of the longer barrel seem to me to be a bonus. I'm glad to hear that Bar-Sto m...

Re: What about living on a sailboat with Nfa items?

I don't know about other places, but in Virginia you cannot have a loaded rifle or pistol when on VA waterways. There may be one or two minor exceptions to this, but it is generally true.

State laws are really going to be a problem.

Well crap.

I guess I'm flying or driving. It is 24 hours driving straight thru from Richmond to Dallas, but at least I don't get the TSA "handjob".

I wish there was a common carrier I could use. I'm not comfortable shipping outside of their policy.

A question about moving firearms in a Trust

Assume I have a valid NFA trust that contains both NFA and non-NFA firearms and related items. Further; co-trustees reside in multiple states, all of which allow possession of all items in the trust. No trustees are prohibited persons. I understand that many, but not all, of the NFA items require an...

Re: Talk me into it...(FNG introduction)

Also, the last thing I want to do is send my $200 in with a design sketch I can't build myself. There is no need to send plans in for a form 1. In fact, it might cause problems for you. The ATF only needs caliber, length, and engraving info. Diameter and internal specs are not needed for a form 1.

Re: 10/22 can design

I would like to suggest that you leave the barrel at 16" or longer and thread it. Build a 6" or longer thread mount suppressor using K baffles and give yourself the option to use it on other 22 LR firearms. A K baffle design with subsonic ammo is silly quiet, and with supersonic ammo it is certainly...

Common sense comes into play with some laws...
