Being thrifty, I have been looking at different ways to make my more functional.
I may have stumbled on to a solution using and AK brace. I'll need to do some more measuring and research, but here's what I have:
1. Remove buttstock and destroy
2. Extend legs of non functional stock and lock permanently.
3. Attach stabilizing brace to legs of stock.
Or, totally remove stock and see if I can attack a hinged type. More research and measuring needed.
Thoughts, opinions, advice?
An unnamed member here and myself are conversing as to whether or not this would be legal. He wants to purchase a "RONI" and install his Glock to make it essentially a Glock carbine. The product in question is here:
I argue that it wouldn't be legal without a tax stamp. He argues that it wouldn't be an SBR because of the following in bold:
An SBR is legally defined as a rifle with a barrel shorter than 16 inches, or an overall length of less than 26 inches. Pursuing that route requires registering the rifle as a Title II weapon (often referred to as an NFA weapon) under the National Firearms Act (NFA) and paying an excise tax.
But even then, if that were the case, the catalog for this product lists it as 62 cm, or 24.4 inches. So even in that regard, when closed/retracted, the overall length is less than 26 inches.
Some of the RONI kits advertise as "NO NFA REQUIREMENTS". However, the "RONI_SBS" (which appears to simply be one of their standard RONI kits + a " Skeleton Style ButtStock, or SBS), does not advertise as being "NO NFA REQUIREMENTS".
Anyone should be able to click the above image to bring it up full-size.
In about 2 weeks, I will be starting the process to convert my PPS-43c into a SBR.
Why? Because without a stock, I can't really enjoy and use the firearm for effective legal and sporting use.
In it's current config, it should be stamped, "not particularly dangerous to target, know what's beyond."
I am pretty sure I am understanding the pros and cons of individual vs. trust. The extra $200 should make it easier to transfer when I kick.
Leaning towards a trust, any Knox area attorney recommendations from the posse?
