The case with the PLR-16 you mentioned violating 39-17-1302, I'm not familiar with why that violates the law.    I'm assuming it's related to #4 on the list but don't understand why.    (Didn't google to determine what #5 used to be.)   The normal configuration pictures appear to be a pistol from my understanding unless his had a foregrip or the such,     Any clarification would be appreciated. 

A person commits an offense who intentionally or knowingly possesses, manufactures, transports, repairs or sells:

  • (1) An explosive or an explosive weapon;
  • (2) A device principally designed, made or adapted for delivering or shooting an explosive weapon;
  • (3) A machine gun;
  • (4) A short-barrel rifle or shotgun;
  • (5) [Deleted by 2017 amendment.]
  • (6) Hoax device;
  • (7) Knuckles; or
  • (8) Any other implement for infliction of serious bodily injury or death that has no common lawful purpose.

I don’t know that it was ever posted why he decided it was illegal. My guess is that because it is a rifle caliber and uses an AR magazine; it is an SBR. He can make that argument if he likes. Just like he (or any DA) that had evidence of someone using a brace as a stock (not its intended use) on an SBR without NFA documentation, could make the argument that’s illegal. Will it happen? Not likely. But if it did the court, not the BATF, would become the decision maker in that court’s jurisdiction. Would you be jailed if your defense was the approval of the ATF, and you were convicted? Not likely. Would you have large legal bills? Probably.

All of this is just information for someone to digest. Putting your freedom and your family’s finances in the hands of the ATF doesn’t make sense to me. If you think using a brace as a stock on a SBR does not violate Federal law; you have nothing to worry about.

Could it be that he took a rifle and converted it into a pistol?? Or bought a rifle lower and converted it over to a pistol.

No, it was a PLR-16.

      I've been looking hard at the Lage MAX-31 mk2 upper. Anybody have any experience with them? Also anybody know of a good place to pick up Suomi drum mags at a good price?
      The M11/9 just isn't very useful as is.

      Got this in e-mail today. Seems like ATF is trying hard, but swamped and outdated.  The real culprit is the FBI.
