AR15 300 blackout pistol

I've toyed around with my new gun build, and am finally ready to move forward.

I was going to make an SBR with an integral suppressor. After much studying and waiting, I've changed my new gun.

I have completed the paperwork on my gun trust, and will ship it out tomorrow. I'll be putting a Chaotic suppressor on my new 300 blackout pistol after the huge wait for a tax stamp is over.

I've got all the parts in for my pistol, including a Sig pistol brace. It's got an 8 inch stainless barrel with an oversized charging handle, and a buffer tube made just for the pistol brace.

All I have to do is finish machining the lower, add some engraving, and wait for the ammo to show up.

Hopefully I can post some pictures next week.

I decided to change from an SBR to a pistol for a few reasons. First, I won't have to wait to play with my new gun. As soon as I finish the build, I can start shooting. The Sig brace makes in not much different than a SBR. I won't have to worry, or get permission if I decide to take it on a hog hunt out of state. In Missouri, I can use a pistol during "black powder season" to hunt deer.

And as a pistol it can be carried loaded all the time if you have a carry permit....even in a vehicle (in PA I know). I went 12' since I'm not doing a suppressor for now. Can always change the barrel if I do. I also read moving a pistol to a SBR means you get to use the pistol while the paperwork processes.....another win!

Hmmm. AFAIK, a rifle can be carried loaded in Missouri. Perhaps I should look that up.

Don't quote me, but I think if you move a pistol to a SBR, you can NEVER turn it back into a pistol. If your lower started life as a rifle, it can never be made into a pistol.

Correct on the pistol to SBR and not back to Pistol. Also correct....rifle can not become a pistol.

Care to cite the law or ruling that states this?

The ATF has ruled that a pistol can be converted to a rifle and back to a pistol without being regulated under the NFA.

http://www.atf.gov/files/regulations...ing-2011-4.pdf

Is there a ruling that states that once NFA, it cannot be a pistol again? I see references to removing the "short barrel" resulting in the firearm no longer being regulated under NFA. Logic would dictate that removing the stock would have the same result, though I concede that logic and reason have little to do with law and politics.
