I have a spare stripped upper to go with my TGO billet lower and have always intended to build an upper to match my 18” upper. For a couple of years now, I’ve gone back and forth as to whether I should do a 14.5” barrel with a pinned flash hider to avoid the cost and hassle, or go the SBR route and go with something like a 10.5” barrel.  

Admittedly, it’s been a while since I’ve researched the process. Is it still a painful and time consuming process?

In the amount of time you've been going back and forth, you could have submitted the paperwork and gotten an approval many times over. Just submit it and don't look back.

Do you have to have a stock? If not, why not use that lower for something else and build an AR Pistol? They are cheap now, and you don’t have to mess with tax stamps.

SBR or any class III is too restrictive in my opinion regarding travel, possession by others, etc...

i may be mistaken, but simply crossing state lines (as i understand it) is not ok w/out some steps (from a purely legal standpoint) and i cannot loan it to anyone under any circumstance for use unless I remain present.  

not wort the restrictions.

Braces are good these days (SBA3 mounted to a mil spec buffer tube) does the job along w/ the shockwave or the any other number of braces.  

just my perspective, FWIW

Until they are deemed illegal.   And then they wouldn't be worth the hassle.

SBR/SBS this is true. For suppressors it is not as long as it's a suppressor friendly state.

and i cannot loan it to anyone under any circumstance for use unless I remain present.  

50/50 true/ false. If you have a trust or Corp, people in the trust or Corp can use it. A class 3 dealer may also repair and test one.

not worth the restrictions.

      Would you turn yours in if they had not been stolen or lost in a boating accident?

      Received an email from GOA regarding Jeremy and Kansas. Long story short, he purchased a suppressor from an unlicensed manufacturer. Why? Kansas has a law stating that all firearms, accessories and ammo manufactured and possessed inside the state are exempt from federal law.
      GOA and several AG from other states are backing the appeals.
      I guess if the Supreme Court actually makes a ruling, this will affect us and the country for years to come.
      In wake of the recent shooting suppressors are already a hot topic, but theoretically if you took all the legal, taxed suppressors and developed a crime rate, I imagine it would be inexplicably low.

      I did a search before posting, but none of the topics presented quite matched up with my situation.
      My dad passed away a few months ago and we're trying to get his affairs wrapped up with as little drama as possible.  When he passed away, he had a few NFA items. I know that we can use form 5 to transfer the items to a lawful heir. The thing is after speaking with an attorney on just the estate in general,  she said it really wasn't worth going through probate to deal with settling debts and dispersing what's left over. Which I'm fine with. But that means we don't technically have an executor for the will. 
      Is it possible to fill out  form 5 and have my mom (as the surviving spouse serve as "executor / personal representative") either transfer them to herself or transfer them to me?  Or are we going to have to open probate just to deal with these items?
      Help?
