    I have a Striped AR Lower Receiver that is registerd that way as a striped receiver. Now I have a delema should I go through the hoops and make it into a AR pistol and register it that way or should I just say the heck with it and just build another rifle?

    So to those that have voted on the poll, could you give some reasons for your vote as to why you voted the way you did?

    I thought it had to be transferred to you as a pistol. If it was transferred as a receiver I think that makes it a rifle. I could be wrong, but there is a fine line of legality with these.

    I sold my pistol - didn't use it much and it was more of a novelty thing. If you really want a compact rifle caliber pistol, buy a FN Five-seveN.

    Pistol's the way to go once you have (it sounds like) a few ar rifles.

    you can never have too many AR calibers. Build it in another caliber or go with the five seven

    You should build it into a pistol. You can take a pistol and turn it into a rifle and then switch it back and forth all you want. You cannot take a rifle and switch it into a pistol. Thats just the way the law works. Building it as a pistol gives you options.

    have to say rifle.. although I love my M1A-M14.. I would have to build it as an LAR8 (308).

    Dang them for not having any (308) lowers for me to buy....

    What? Building a pistol into a rifle makes it an ATF controlled AOW. Did I misundersand something here?

    No , I'm not talking about just throwing a stock on a pistol. You cannot convert a rifle into a pistol according to ATF regs. But you can take a pistol and throw a 16+" upper on it and a stock and make it a rifle. You can take a pistol and switch it back and forth from a pistol to a rifle and then back to a pistol all you want. Not with a rifle.
