At that point it goes from pistol to rifle and you're fine.

But if you put the pistol upper back on it, its an sbr because once a pistol turns into a rifle, it cant go back

Or something. Not like it can be proven
>>
>>28860143
>But if you put the pistol upper back on it, its an sbr because once a pistol turns into a rifle, it cant go back
As of 2011, no.
If it started as a rifle it cannot become a pistol.
If it started as a pistol it can become a rifle and pistol and back and forth however you want so long as it is not in violation of NFA regs.

>>
>>28860159
If he put a rifle stock on it to shoulder it, then after putting the pistol upper he also put the brace back on, I would say yeah that's ok.
I think shouldering the arm brace turns it into a stock though.
Mr ATF, could you weigh in?

Are the targets for training shaped like dogs?
>>
>>28862987
Well in the document they talk about having the pieces in proximity to each other, and how they decided that it didn't constitute an NFA firearm, as long as all the pieces were there to construct either a non-NFA pistol or a non-NFA rifle. If the only parts present for your gun are a short barrel and a shoulder stock, that's an SBR.
>>
>>28863108
You're not really contesting anything here, yes.
>>
>>28863116
We're trying to find out if shouldering a pistol brace changes the legal definition of the shoulder brace, as I understand it. We even have our very own fake ATF agent who would rather be asked about killing dogs than NFA questions.
>>
>>28863108
So if you have an AR pistol and you have an extra stock from a rifle then the ATF will say you have an SBR

All ATF agents need to be tried for treason right fucking now
>>
>>28863158
The brace becomes a stock when shouldered.
When not shouldered, it isn't a stock.
It's as simple as that.

>>
>>28863013
This is one of our favorite targets
>>
>>28863173
But shouldering the pistol brace redesigns it. Isn't that permanent? Does the shouldered pistol become a rifle, or does the brace become a stock?
>>
>>28862289
>make one
Yep, plenty of places on the interwebz you can find all the info you need. Buy a parts kit, take a day, you have an AK. Take a bit longer, you can build an MG42.

>>28863215
It is not permanent. Yes on both accords.

Guys, holy fuck. I just had an epiphany.

>>
>>28863013
Yes, but they are only sold to LEOs trough official LEO supply channels.

Sales to civilians for self defense training have been banned as it would be pose a major threat to K-9 officers. We must not forget that a K-9 officer requires special privileges and protections above and beyond those afforded to the plebeians. They need to be able to effectively maul someone without fearing for their own safety or making split-second decisions. These situations are highly stressful. It's already hard enough risking their lives by having to endure sitting in a hot car all day.
>>
>>28863265
>Implying it's not a stamped SBR.
If I was a millionaire, I would get a stamp for a SBR and put the Sig brace on it and stamp an oil filter too. I would then install a registered lightening link and take the whole package to knob creek or some shit for the shear irony.

All of you should really just fucking lose your right to own a damn gun because you shown nothing but wha wha wha muh feelings and muh puppies and shit.

The ATF is not this ultra mega huge fucking demonic being that goes and shoots up your four legged pet.

The ATF place down laws and regulations to keep retards like you from going around waving your long ass thirty round magazine arshits and your puppy shouting AM MUH BEIN DETAUUUN DERRRRRRRRR goddamn you fucks really should be restricted from owning a damn firearm.

I highly doubt that when the four fathers made the second amendment they planned for it to be used by retards that drop out of highschool or graduate from the crying and feelings college.

If only they knew how pathetic you severe special needing fucks are they would have established the same thing we the ATF have set on grounds to curb stomp retards like you but I would highly bet that they would just say "jesus christ the future is full of autistic retards with guns! Lets just don't make the second amendment and just put down that only smart and educated can own a gun no wait fuck it the future is already filled with retards"

Without the ATF you fucks would go full retard mode out there with your pathetic full auto money wasting rifles and c4s and blowing shit up and I know there is that ome special fuck that thinks it would be a good idea to go up to a school open carrying a retard black painted plastic gun thinking it's a good fucking idea.

But hey since you guys care so much about animals which is actually surprisingly good for that part of your ill mmanner side of your retardation.

Hopefully the second amendment will be stripped away from all of you so that no puppies and kittens are hurt anymore.

Instead of going full blown "BUT DAH ATF AND THE POLICE SHOT MUH PET!" Why not bitch at the one that actually pull the trigger instead of the entire group you damn stupid child!

The only reason the ATF still exists is because of the creation of the NFA. The only reason the NFA exists is because ATF goons didn't want to lose their jobs after prohibition ended.
Your entire job, and the legacy of your agency is to kill people peaceful people and put them in cages.
How does it feel to be the criminal?
How does it feel to infringe on the rights of people who have not infringed on anyone else' rights?
How does it feel to be so fucking immoral as to say, "if you touch your shoulder with this piece of plastic, that's a felony and you're going to jail! And if you don't like it, we'll kill you!"?

The ATF is quite frankly, ripping us off. $200 to swap a barrel on an AR?! that's crazy! If it was me in charge that wouldn't be happening, it's unfair. They closed the machine gun registry, now these guys have a monopoly on machine guns! You got a bunch of guys tryin' to sell us crap from the 50's, can you believe it?! So here's what I'm gonna do for ya, we're gonna to re-open the registry, we're gonna remove all length restrictions, so no more paying for SBS, SBR, and AOW. We're gonna exempt some Destructive Devices but some of them have got to stay. Look, we're beating these guys on guns everyday and we're gonna keep beating them on guns everyday. We're gonna make the 2nd Amendment great again, we're gonna make America great again!
