Once it has been a pistol you are pretty much screwed..
You CAN add a longer barrel to a pistol (i.e. permanently attach a barrel extension to come to the 16+" ) and then add a stock. No forms are needed for this. This would be legal in Washington. Once it is a rifle you cannot go back though. Also you couldn't shoot it in Washington unless you had a removable suppressor core.
The FFL you ship it to would need to be a class 2 SOT to legally handle the suppressed upper. You can just remove the barrel/silencer from the receiver (easy to do with AR-15 wrench) and send the receiver only for repair.
Pistol to rifle is ok but once a rifle you cannot go back to a pistol so you would be fine as long as the other laws are not stretched.

the shrouded barrel with a can comes to 17 inches and handles better
than my 16" barrel with a can that comes to 24 inches long.
If it was ok to have a SBR in WA I wouldnt be making shrouded barrels
