Re: SBR and Statelines with the ATF rules.

The other option would be to get another lower setup as a pistol, then you could take the short upper

Depends on what you are really wanting.

For me, specifically for hunting, I try and keep dedicated weapons for hunting purposes.

Re: SBR and Statelines with the ATF rules.

Well your topic title is do you, but your posts asks can you.

Yes you can, No personally I don't. I file .20s and take them as SBRs

Re: SBR Encore to SBS?

I have never seen anything official from BATFE, but was told by an 07/02 that if it was a smoothbore barrel it would need to be registered as a sbs. If it was a rifled barrel (even as a shotgun gauge chambering) it would be a sbr. There are a few scenarios I have thought of in this respect. The TC i...

That's - "Foxtrot, Mike, India" NOT "Foxtrot, Mike, One"

Re: Where to engrave 10/22 ZK-22 SBR?

Don't worry about the stock covering the engraving, it covers Ruger's markings as well. If it really bothers you submit the F1 with specs for the original stock, engrave the reciever or the barrel, cut it, mount it in the original stock - congratulations you built your F1 gun now put it in the bullp...

This is the point though, OP is talking federal laws and state laws.

Re: SBR a 80% receiver or a commercial receiver?

If you are building the SBR from an 80%, just fill out the form1 the same as you would a scratch built silencer. Don't get fancy, just enter the info just like it asks. There are some special instructions for efile if you are submitting with a trust or corp if I remember right. Are you filing as an ...

Re: Help with lathe, 13x36 Clausing

Not that that isn't a decent lathe, BUT I wouldn't pay that much for that machine. 3 reasons - 1) as has been brought up, the power feed issue has trouble written all over it. If it is the lead screw that would also likely effect cutting threads 2) Look at the spray paint job. That would indicate to...

Re: Endcap design question.

You will notice the weight more than the sound reduction, and there is no easy way of machining it other than solid wieght

I tried it on my last form1 build - no advantage that I found. It was for a bolt gun used on a bipod or a bag so the weight didn't bother me either.

Re: Registering lower for future build

First, do you have any short uppers now (ie. other SBRs or pistols)? If so the easiest way to do this is to submit the form1 to build a new SBR with a currently owned upper - fill the form out to those specs. Get form back, slap everything together and tada - a SBR. You can then feel free to change ...

No personal experience with the PDW type stocks for the AR in 9mm, but have read many issues with them over at ARFCOM. Personally I think the AR in 9mm too heavy to be a PDW anyway. Have you considered other platforms? If I had more money some on my radar are: Scorpion, Glock in a Roni (or similar) ...

Re: Question on legal limits of bore clearance?

So basically the charge would be possession of an unregistered silencer, which you would then be in a position of defending yourself against. Now, in this position, you bear the burden of proof. You have to prove that you are not guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. How likely is it that you would be ...

Re: Question on legal limits of bore clearance?

I have never seen or heard of any law or ruling on the caliber marking vs actual bore size. Therefore, it would come down to ATF agent discretion of whether they thought the device broke any actual law. The most likely laws I can think of are 1) you were approved to build a silencer for caliber X an...

From everything I have read, you only need to inform them if there is a change while something is in process.

I always wondered similar for a 20 gauge, 22 mag combo gun. Or those single shots that have a shotgun barrel and a rifle barrel using the same action.

Be prepared to leave the forms and return to get them after they are signed. In my experience, I drop the forms off at the PD.
