I’ve tried searching the forum and can’t find anything defining the difference between a pistol vs SBR. If there is a preexisting thread, please shoot me in the right direction.
My confusion is that I’ve found conflicting info about what is and isn’t a pistol (specifically an ar pistol). Some say arm braces are good to go others say they are a no go. I’ve found the same confusion with vertical foregrips and OAL.
I found a flowchart that was pretty easy to read but was from 2015 so I’m afraid the info is outdated.
So what’s the official verdict!?
Thanks in advance!
16" plus barrel with a stock is a rifle.
Less than 16" barrel with a stock is an SBR. SBRs need tax stamp.
Less than 16" barrel with a brace or buffer tube is a pistol. Pistols do not need tax stamp.
Less than 16" barrel with an over-all length of at least 26" and a vertical foregrip is a "firearm" and is legal as long as its not concealed. Without the VFG its just a pistol.
Less than 16" barrel with OAL less than 26" cant have a VFG on it unless its a registered SBR.
The go/no-go on the brace thing is whether or not you can shoulder a brace. Thats a back-and-forth thing that ill let someone else explain better. But for the sake of my explanation, a brace is not a stock so it doesnt make a pistol an SBR.
Perfect. Thank you!
