So, did some searching but couldn't find what I was looking for......

What are the main differences between an AOW and a SBS? Besides the Tax Stamp difference?

I'm debating which to choose....What I'm considering is a 10" Rem 870, now here is the root of my question:

Can I switch between a stock or pistol grip on one but not the other?

Say I have a Pistol Grip and then decide I'd rather use it with a full stock?

Thanks

An AOW "shotgun" cannot have a buttstock on it, now or ever in the past, while an SBS can.

If you're making one on a Form 1, both cost the same $200 (AOW's are $200 to make and $5 to transfer) so the SBS is the logical choice.

An AOW can be carried as a concealed weapon.....

An SBS can be carried as a concdaled weapon (if you have a ccw), just take the stock off and replace with a pistol grip. An SBS can go back and forth (stock or no-stock) as you desire.

So can an SBS, at least here in PA.

An AOW can be carried across state lines without prior permission of the BATFE, as can silencers.
