    I am hoping someone on here has some experience with this question because I cannot find a good answer.

    I have a 300BLK pistol I recently built and have never fired. I am rethinking the pistol portion and want to do an SBR. Can I use the same lower from my pistol build and use that for my form 1? I would separate the lower from the upper until I got my tax stamp. Or, do I need to buy a new stripped lower and use that for my form 1?

    Your existing lower will just have to be engraved when you receive the form 1 tax stamp.
    When you send in the form 1 you'll give the ATF it's serial number, so I don't see a problem with it as long as it's was a "Pistol" or "Other" when you bought it.

    @jbett98 is correct. It doesn't matter how the receiver started life when Form 1ing it. (For whatever it is worth, I've had both a pistol to SBR and rifle to SBR approved by ATF, with nary a hiccup.) It will, however, have to be engraved with your information before you build. And, obviously, you can't make it an SBR before you have the approved stamp in hand.

    A lot of guys buy a pistol lower and get it up and running before the tax stamp comes back approved, that way they get any kinks worked out of it, and when the form 1 is approved, they go get it engraved and then add the rear stock and a front grip it so desired.

    Thank you so much for the fast responses.

    Do any of you have any recommendations on local places which do the engraving?

    Sorry for asking a Noob question, but why do you have to engrave a different serial # on it after getting the tax stamp?

    Do you have to cross out or remove the old serial # at the same time? Or do you then have a firearm with two SN's?

    Not a new serial number. I will be getting my trust information engraved into the firearm. Serial number will stay the same.
