    The question of its legality is very murky. A number of them have already been sold in Oklahoma. I do appreciate your answer.

    Do you call NICS, or do you use the EZ Check system online? We still call, and I was told there were only three possible answers for this question (asked by the NICS examiner): "Type of transaction and firearm?" The three answers are: "Sale of handgun", "Sale of long gun", or "Private sale."

    Per the box it was shipped in from Mossberg, the Shockwave is a "pistol grip firearm" that can "only" be transferred to a person 21 yrs of age or older and a resident of this state. It is going in the book as a pistol.

    That's odd. Well then, how would you answer then when selling a stripped lower receiver ?

    "Sale of long gun". Again, the above is what a NICS examiner told me some months back. We were doing a check on a transfer of a stripped lower, in fact, and I said, "Other". I was then told that that was not an acceptable answer, and the three "acceptable" answers were told to me. Who knows? All of this may have changed.... We're sticking to the three "acceptable" answers until we hear something different (and definitive).

    I'd be more worried about covering my own... situation.

    And it does indeed seem to be murky territory. If it's ever classified as a shotgun, then the 18" barrel rule will apply.

    Just my 2¢ ... :drunk2:

    Really odd, because a stripped lower adheres to rules similar to handgun, IE: can't transfer to anyone under age of 21....... At least, Im pretty sure that's correct. Sorry to hijack the thread.

    You're not hijacking the thread at all. I really don't know about the stripped lower being classed similar to a handgun. As I'm sure you're aware, BATF rules are not always the clearest things written. The Shockwave ships with a label about not transferring to anyone under 21.
