SBS / AOW Form 1 dimensions

Post by dan9591 » Fri Apr 01, 2016 3:03 pm

I am finally getting around to submitting a form 1 for a side-by-side shotgun. I know you can only submit an application for an SBS, so what should I put on the dimensions for overall length if I am intending to create an AOW?

The gun currently has a 20” barrel with an OAL of 36” with the stock.

Here are the proposed lengths:
Barrel: 8” (will be once form is received)
OAL with chopped barrel: 24”
OAL with chopped barrel – final pistol grip-only configuration: 16”

Anyone else done one of these? What did you use for the dimensions?

SBS shotguns come in a wide range of gauges.I did cut a 36" SBS 10 gauge to 18.5" and was sorry I did not stop at 24". :D
The only reason after 243 years the government now wants to disarm you is they intend to do something you would shoot them for!

your OAL and barrel length are whatever your final dimensions will be.

A SBS doesn't require a stock to be a SBS, so even in AOW configuration it is still a SBS.

You could fill out the form 1 with either of the OAL dimensions you listed if you cut barrels first, but if it were me I'd want the paperwork to be how I plan on keeping it.
