    Ok I got a hell of a deal (more like free) on a M&P lower and was think about building a SBR with it...

    So here's the question.... I understand all the paper work and fees but is there a difference since I’m in law enforcement? Even tho I’m building it for myself but I will possibly carry it in the trunk for duty if approved by the chief?

    Thanks Shelby

    If you are building it for yourself, it does not matter if you are LE. Paperwork, wait time, tax, etc.. is the same.

    As he said, no difference in the process. Just make sure that the Chief and policy/procedure allow it and the Administration will back you in it's use should you have to use it.

    I recommend using a barrel that is factory built. I built an AR with an 10.5 barrel that started by cutting a 16" barrel down. Had nothing but troubles with gas ports and the gas system. Finally went to a factory built barrel and all the problems went away.
