How short can you get away with, legally? That would be from muzzle end to butt stock end. Thanks!

Overall length is measured with collasping/folding stocks extended. The barrel is measured from the face of the chamber. NFA rules are a >16" barrel and a >26" overall length. Thus, with a folding stock (for example, a Thompson Contender or NEF break action), you could have a gun only 16" long with the stock closed, as long as the gun was 26" long with the stock open. Any less than either of these measurement and you have a short barreled rifle. Postban/preban rules still apply for semi-autos. Kharn

This would not be for an AR rifle. It is one of those 'Bullpup' configurations that you can do to an AK rifle. Anyway, thanks for the information! [:)]
