    I did a little searching and see that 16" barrel is 1 criteria for legal limits... also 26" is another someone posted. Is there a special permit needed ( such as full auto stamp) that is needed for a AR w/10.5 barrel in Oregon? Assuming it will have a standard AR rifle lower attached. I thought we might have a sticky in Legal section of OR or WA rules.

    Larry Potterfield posted a video on how to measure barrel length in different types of long guns.

    Barrel lengths:
    16" on rifle
    18" on shotguns

    OAL is different than the above listed.

    A barrel shorter than 16" on a "rifle" requires an NFA tax stamp for a SBR, otherwise you can make it a pistol.

    You can also permanently attach a barrel shroud to a sub-16" length barrel to extend its length beyond 16.001" from closed bolt face on a rifle...

    TMI?

    The Tavor I just bought is a right at the 26" OAL which means its about the size of an SBR'd AR.
    But yeah, there's some pay that goes with the Tavor as well..just not the stamp.

    Top rifle has 16.5" of rifling.
    Bottom rifle has 10.5" of rifling.... ..... ;-) there are legal ways around to get what you want if you can compromise.

    Is that a 'thing'? Don't you have to clean it out once in a while?

    I'm sure you meant "16 inches is minimum barrel length" if you are talking about not being able to get the 10.5 inch upper.
