    Bought a pistol that already had one on it and even though I planned on selling off parts and turning it into a rifle, still took it to the range to try it out. Pistol handled well using as designed/intended and it worked like you'd expect from the shoulder. I parted out some of the pistol (brace, barrel, etc), swapped in some rifle parts, and walked away with a free Aimpoint H1, $20, and an appreciation for people's abilities to get over on the antiquated rule the ATF enforces.

    Agreed, esp bold part. Their money, their choice... or were they born that way... I get confused with the whole gay vs ghey thing.

    Also, eForm1 times are down to roughly 30-31 days, just sayin'.

    Speaking of apples to oranges... if you wanted to skew the results more in favor of the Sig Brace, you could always replace the CTR in your example with a PRS and you be looking at $500+ savings.

    Let me try and we'll do it pretty bare bones...

    Modifying:
    $200 tax stamp + existing stock + existing buffer kit = $200

    Vs

    $150 Sig Brace + existing pistol tube = $150

    Savings: $50

    Build:
    $200 tax stamp + $30* Magpul Fixed Carbine stock (my preference) + $40* mil spec buffer kit = $270
    *prices from DSG Arms

    $150 Sig Brace + $60-90 (depending on length and source) = $210-240

    Savings: $30-60 depending on which length of pistol buffer you go with and a little bit more can be saved if you shop around for the brace but the SBR crowd can also save by using a basic stock on the SBR sourced from a store, a take off picked up on OSA, or even the DSG MOE Stock kit, with a savings of $10-30 depending on how generous the OSA member was.

    Yep, expected to hate it and a bit self loathing that I didn't. Would consider it if I didn't have a SBR already with a caveat. I am interested in getting more involved in classes and events and intend for my rifle to be put through the wringer so I am glad the fixed carbine stock is perfect for me as I see the adjustment lever and parts of CTR, MOE, iMod, etc. as a possible/probable point of failure. Following the same line of thought, I am not sure how resilient the Sig Brace will be for much more than a range, truck, or HD gun.

    Lastly...

    Gay, straight, black, white, SBR, pistol with brace? I'm just glad you MF'ers get out shooting and are enjoying as much of our constitutional rights as you can. And if you can't take a joke then f*ck ya.

    Wait, what?
    is Eform1 used for suppressors as well?
    And is that anticipated wait down to 30 days... for real?

    If you're building the suppressor yourself its a form 1, if you're buying one already made its a form 4

    So if you have an NFA registered gun, of whatever kind, do you have to carry around the paperwork for that stuff everywhere you take that gun? Like an SBR, do you have to carry the paperwork with you every time you leave the house with it? Is it like a full size letter or a something you can carry in a wallet?

    I don't have the ability to afford one at the moment but I would like to build a SBR one of these days, ideally a .45acp if possible but those are like unicorn AR's so caliber isn't decided yet. I was trying to decide between going the "official" tax stamp route or the Sig brace. I love that the Sig brace avoids the tax stamp and the possible carrying of paperwork issue (depending on answer to first question) but then going the official route offers a lot of versatility that you can't get from the Sig brace.

    Opinions on this vary. I carry a copy with me. They are 2 sided and shrunk down to 25% size.

    I carry a copy of the forms and trust. Forms are currently full-size since I haven't made it around to shrinking and laminating them. There are also copies saved on my phone and in my email, as well on my wife's phone so she has them for herself and if I made need them sent to me.
