    So is this considered a SBR when installed on a 1911?

    It is not considered a short barreled rifle 18 inches on the dot which would make it a carbine.But i do appreciate the inquiry I had to measure it myself to be sure.Thanks Regards Scott

    I don't believe that once you make a pistol into a rifle you can't make it into a pistol again. I seem to remember that there was some letter's from the BATF on this topic a while ago.

    Just something to be aware of.

    If it started out life as a pistol you can make it into a rifle as long as the barrel length is 16" (there is also an over all gun length that must be met I believe- so no sawed off stocks)

    and you can turn it back to a pistol.

    otherwise these conversions like the one for the ruger .22 pistol would be illegal as you would turn a pistol into a rifle and then no more pistol...whats the point? people would just buy rifles.

    Where you have to be careful is turning a rifle into a "pistol" (a shorter barrel) this requires approval from your local sheriff and the ATF plus $200

    this is just what i've read. Do your homework if you are concerned :thumbup:

    Thankyou for straightening this up.These carbine uppers were and are sold in the retail market place today with no lower assembly.Specifically made to fit your 1911 frame.The barrel length is over 16 inches manufactured at 18 inches, 16 inches would constitute a short barrel rifle I believe,And if that were the case you can bet I would not own or try to sell it.This is an every day factory manufactured accessory for your 1911 enjoyment, sold every day in the retail marketplace.Thankyou both for your input I learn more and more everyday from discussions like this one.Regards Scott

    I have owned one for over three years and it is a lot of fun. BTW, I use a Llama 1911 for my lower and it works great. (Almost) any 1911 lower will work with these ... including the Commander.

    They also make them for Glocks!
    Setting up your frame for a different caliber is simply changing the magazine.

    Be careful.. with the telescoping stock it becomes a SBR

    This unit being offered has a fixed stock so you're covered unless you are in commiefornia

    ANY stock on a pistol makes it a rifle. If the barrel is less than 16" (or the overall length is less than 26") then it is a SBR.

    Note that the ATF interprets the rule as with the collapsible stock fully extended.
