Last minute range trip to KY - brace ok on SBR?


Recommended Posts

Like the title says I may have a last minute (well, four days away) trip to shoot with some friends in KY. This isn’t enough time to get an approved ATF Form blah blah blah to travel with my sbr, but since it started life as a pistol is it kosher to put the brace back on it and cross state lines? Pretty much all of what I can find from googling is for ARs and this isn’t an AR so I can’t really see a straight answer.

If you leave it at home there will be no worries.  You will get a range of answers here, ATF has the only answer for you.

This subject was raised a few months back and I was educated and corrected by more knowledgeable members here on the law regarding it. You only need the correct form if you were going to transfer it In a title II status. Removing the stock and replacing it in a brace returns into a title I status and means that you can travel across state lines with it freely.  
 

An SBR is only treated as an SBR when it is configured as an SBR. Changing the configuration changes the way it is treated under the law.

That’s kind of what I figured but I wanted to make extra sure. I’ll probably need to take off the VFG too, huh. Gotta love it

Yup. VFG on a pistol makes an AOW.

Unless it's over 26 inches. If it's over 26 inches, is considered a firearm or something else instead of a pistol or rifle. Clear as mud atf.

I thought about mentioning that but decided not to. Unlike the AFT I was trying to impart clear and useful information. 😂😂😂
