cool. thank you guys. now, can i borrow the money for this adventure? lol jk
I've never gone through their site to find the forms. Just googled them.
im still not clear on something. let say i came across a sbr lower. i know i would have to apply on form 4 and wait. what would i have to do to buy an upper? would i have to wait until the lower paperwork goes through, or would i send it in asap? and from looking at the paperwork, i dont guess you can send in your info, then find a gun?
Buy any upper you want as long as you don't have another lower in your possession.
so i can go out and buy a 10.5" upper and its all legal, unless i have another ar-15 in my possession?
That is correct.
A lot of times people build an AR pistol, out of the receiver they are using, while they wait for the form 1 to clear
thats cool. didnt think about that either. at first, i assumed that a pistol just meant no butt stock. lol, im glad i looked it up. theres a few hoops you gotta jump through with this one too. i was reading the cans and cannots on quaterbore.com. here is what was posted:
A Semi-Auto pistol with an ability to accept a detachable magazine can not have two (2) or more of the following features:
1. an ammunition magazine that attaches to the pistol outside of the pistol grip.
2. a threaded barrel capable of accepting a barrel extender, flash suppressor, forward handgrip or silencer.
3. a shroud that is attached to, or partially or completely encircles the barrel and that permits the shooter to hold the firearm with the non-trigger hand without being burned.
4. a manufactured weight of 50 ounces or more when the pistol is unloaded. a semiautomatic version of an automatic firearm.
from what i understand, the best and easiest way is to have a non threaded barrel and no hand guard. is that correct?
here is the entire page. http://www.quarterbore.com/nfa/sbr-aow-pistol.html
That Quarterbore page was written on 03/26/04 when the Assault Weapons ban was still in effect. That ban expired in Sept of 2004. You can build your AR pistol however you want today. I know a lot of folks like the AR pistols, but they are useless in my opinion except as a way to test out your short barreled upper while waiting for your tax stamp to come in so you can attach a stock. YMMV
oh.....ok. thats good, lol. im glad you guys know all and are able to school me on it. and i certainly appreciate it. i 2nd your statement on them being useless, word for word. thanks so much! come see me sometime!
