Can a shotgun become a "firearm"? Login/Join

I believe a "rifle" cannot be made into a "pistol", only a SBR with a $200 tax stamp.

Can a "shotgun" receiver be made into a "firearm" like a Shockwave if it meets all the specs (smooth bore, over 26" overall length) with parts from a Shockwave?

I myself check every day to make sure that the bright, smug, pompous, idiotic claim is still there. Then I check to make sure that it still irritates me. If I can still exclaim, under my breath, why do they insult me and what do they take me for and what the hell is it supposed to mean unless it's as obviously complacent and conceited and censorious as it seems to be, then at least I know I still have a pulse.

Okay, so if it has ever had a buttstock attached to it, it can never become a firearm and it will always be a shotgun. Barrels under 18" will need a stamp.

I will get on that since the wait is only 9 months, now Smile
