    I want an AOW like this:

    in Wa, you can only have an AOW, and no SBS or SBR...

    an AOW has to never have had a stock, and I cant find a SxS shotgun with no stock from the factory. so the only ones I see like this online are a SBS and not an AOW.

    Here is my question, If I cut the receiver, and reweld it and never install a stock, file a form 1??, get aproved, pay my stamp ($200) and make it an AOW, would this be legal?

    Your question would be one best answered by the BATF/WA government themselves...Better to get a letter straight from the horses mouth if someone decides what you've done is illegal.

    Just doing a quick google search, it appears the only known shotgun that came in a side by side AOW configuration was this:

    http://www.ncc-1776.org/tle1997/le970315-03.html

    Probably going to be pretty hard to find, and possibly more expensive than the move to an SBS friendly state :p

    There are rules on "demilling" a receiver. When you're done, you won't be able to just "reweld it".

    they make semi auto rifles from machineguns that are simply rewelds... And Im pretty sure I could reweld it, as long as it was saw cut....

    Yup. And that usually requires a new receiver.

    I was just handling a handgun last week that was a .410. Similar to a single hammer derringer, but instead stacked barrels they were side by side. It only had about 1/2" of barrel past the chamber. He doesn't want to shoot it, but told me that I could borrow it at any time. (I think he wants me to buy it from him):thumbup:

    If you make an AOW it's a $200 stamp, but if you buy one that is already made, it's only $5

    Trust me, if I could do it, I would be pumping out the 12G side by side AOWs.

    You had me re-reading the regulation, an lo and behold, there it was. Bummer. I was kind of dreaming of making a Serbu shorty myself. Now I guess it'll be cheaper to just buy one. Darn! It is a much more fun doing it myself. :bawling:
