I have been looking to Form 1 a SBR or 2 myself. The process to do that is pretty straight forward. For example, if you want to SBR an AR, you can buy the stripped lower, fill out the Form 1 and send it and the necessary supporting stuff to the ATF with that check for $200. While you are waiting for the Form 1 to come back, you can have your lower engraved. with the necessary info. If you are filing as an individual, then that would be your name, city, and state.The process for making an NFA item is different (Form 1) and I have no experience with this so I will defer to much smarter folks here for that guidance.
So my rifle wouldn't be a rifle until NFA paperwork came back. Until then, it'd be pistol only with the proper engravings depending on trust/individual. I would not buy the stock until I received approval to avoid constructive possession of SBR.I like that idea. My issue is I work minimum wage job so I can buy guns/ammo and a few other hobbies. The process of saving money for 6-8 months to buy something vs 2-3 months is a lot easier mentally. I'd like to be able to buy a lower, call it my SBR+submit NFA paperwork, then buy the upper as I wait stamp to come back(pistol), then finally put a stock on my pistol when I get the right paper work. Is this possible legally?
Does that make sense?
You can put any length upper on you SBR lower. Any caliber that your lower can shoot as well. 9mm, .22lr, 300 blackout, and others.Ahhh I see.
Last question (for now)- if I build a sbr can I change out the uppers if it's in the same caliber? Can I put a 16in rifle upper on my sbr if the need arrises? Also, could I switch out uppers in different calibers?
