What is the shortest rifle lenght you can have?
From what I have managed to find out 16" is the shortest barrel lenght. Is this correct?
I have read that 16" can be partly a muzzel brake thats welded or pinned. If so what size barrel could you have and what size brake.
Im assuming post ban.....But when the AWB sunsets what will be in barrel/gun lenghts if any?
What about the stock, is there a minimum lenght for this to, and what would that be?

16 inch barrell, 26 inches overall. It doesn't matter how much of that barrel is muzzle brake or faux suppressor or whatever so long as it is permanently attached. If it can be removed without too much work, it doesn't count. Sunset of the AWB wouldn't affect barrel length or overall lenght requirements, but folding stocks are measured from their extended position.

BTW-- You can find the definitions of "short-barreled rifle" and "short-barreled shotgun" in [url=http://caselaw.lp.findlaw.com/casecode/uscodes/18/parts/i/chapters/44/sections/section_921.html]18 U.S.C. 921[/url].
