I bought a pistol complete lower and put a 10.5 inch upper on it. To make an AR Pistol. I didn’t put a brace on it. According to the BATF that is legal; at least TODAY that is legal.
So my question is this: Unless you buy it new how do you know it’s a pistol lower? I bought mine new so I had the paperwork. But I see plenty for sale used or that people built. Its my understanding that if it ever was a rifle; it can't be a pistol without being NFA SBR?? If someone just threw a SB upper on their old POS AR Rifle lower and sold it as a “Pistol”; how would you know? Or more importantly how would cops know if they stopped you and found it? Would it matter?
I typically file for my stamps and forget about them. When I get the call from my dealer, it is like Christmas time. Well, I have 2 stamps that have been pending since mid august 2018, and I can not wait for them to be approved. I called the other day to check, I was told the average time was 9 months but call back in another 4 weeks and they may be approved. 4 more weeks would put me over 12 months. All I want is permission from the crown to take my items home that I paid to have! Efile form 1s are at 30ish days...get it together with the form 4s, please!
