Salient Point

Tam reminds me that if I buy an AK with a stock and a 16"+ barrel... replace the barrel with something < 16" and remove the stock, I have made an NFA regulated short barrel rifle.

But if I buy a bare receiver, and make an identical gun, it's a pistol...

It's all part of the ATF's magical "once a, always a" world.  Once a gun is a rifle, it's always a rifle.

Take that AK "pistol"...

Add a stock and it's now a rifle.  A short barrel rifle unless you replaced it with something 16+ inches long.  Removing the stock doesn't return it to pistol status EVER!

My head is so scarred from the desk that I am going to be mistaken for a devout Muslim.
