    Well legally speaking it can never be a pistol. The only 2 legal things it can be are a Rifle or a Short Barreled Rifle.

    You can not legally put a shorter barrel on without doing the proper paperwork.

    I am not sure of the laws in your state but here is a link with almost everything you need to know about your state laws and the NFA, GunBroker.com Message Forums - Basic NFA FAQ (update 7-14-12)

    If it was originally built as a rifle, the short answer is yes.
    Changing a rifle into a "weapon built from a rifle" (without a stock) or a "short barrel rifle" (Barrel under 16 inches with a stock)
    requires a NFA Tax Stamp.
