Yeah true but same could be said with other class 3 items. Figured id ask😁So I wanna SBR my Omega SD receiver. Thing is it uses a PK barrel under the SD shroud cage. When I do my efile my measurments are going to look wack....meaning my stated barrel length will be way shorter than OAL. Think this will cause an issue with the examiner thinking its a typo? Also do I use from the end of the shroud cage back to where the buttstock will be fully extended....as in dont measure my suppressor because its not permanently attached. I have lotsa NFA items and experience with stamp collecting but I wanna ask because I may be over thinking this one. Anybody SBR one of these that can relay what you did form wise?/\/\/\/\ This
I followed this for my AR 9mm SBR.
The barrel I used was shorter than the shroud/handguard in order to cover my suppressor when used on the the gun.
If it should ever some to it, I have been told by SOTs and ATF agent that in order to verify barrel length, barrel length would be measured with with a rod inserted from the muzzle of the barrel on a empty closed chamber, marked where it protrudes at the muzzle, then extracted and measured. The reason for this is due to have a consistent way to measure only the barrel length due to differences in barrel mounting systems, extensions etc. I am not a lawyer, ATF agent, or have any LEO affiliation. I did my due diligence to the level that suited me, and so should you. At the very least I would call and ask your local ATF office for their take on this.
The form specifically asks for a barrel length and an overall length for a reason.
