I think any smooth bore bbl has to have a length of 18", pistol grip or not.

I don't think that's a pistol grip.

thigh gap is 18" I think, will have to measure

If it's over 26" OAL, and the barrel is a smoothbore, it's kosher.

Redacted upon further information. Seems like a neat trick, but I don't think I want to try it.

If it's a smoothbore, it would likely be considered a "smoothbore pistol" and hence an AOW. If the barrel were longer, it would likely fall into the amorphous title I category of "it's a normal firearm but not a rifle, shotgun, or pistol".

If it's rifled... it might just be considered a pistol and be gtg.

Heh.

I was just reading another thread where people were discussing some ridiculous stocks used to skirt CA law or something and was just thinking how silly we must look if our founders could see us now.

Maybe, if the overall length is over 26" but the barrel is less than 18" AND it has never had a stock, someone effectively tricked the ATF in to admitting that such a gun is a "firearm" not a pistol/handgun or a rifle/shotgun. I sure as hell wouldn't want to be the test case, but people are taking advantage of the ATFs admittion.

I think if it's over 26" OAL and a virgin receiver it's considered a "firearm" and not a SBS as far as NFA goes.

Doesn't matter. Smooth bore has to have an 18" bbl in any configuration. Or get a stamp.

I seem to recall a few years back someone got a smooth bore smith revolver. Factory mistake and they had to either get it registered as an AOW or SBS or return it to s&w for a new bbl.

Yup, AOW. Looks like the 14" model that Mossberg manufactures.

Edited for a herpin' and a derpin'.

I wouldn't trust an ATF "you know what" to be very discerning regarding the details of your interpretation.
Link Posted: 10/20/2013 4:14:12 PM EDT
It's not a shotgun so it's legal.

One would think if that was legal you would see them for sale either on gunbroker or gun stores or the like.

With the way the Serbu's draw attention being an AOW and requiring a stamp, this would be a good way to circumvent a stamp/ATF involvement and still have a nice little beater trunk/truck gun IMO.

I'm in the thread to find out more, pending some actual factual evidence per Some ATF rules quoting, I would like to build me one.

****ninja edit! now seeing the above website, it seems there is some clarification***

That is an AOW if built on a virgin receiver.

26 USC 5845(e) Any other weapon

The term “any other weapon” means any weapon or device capable of being concealed on the person from which a shot can be discharged through the energy of an explosive, a pistol or revolver having a barrel with a smooth bore designed or redesigned to fire a fixed shotgun shell, weapons with combination shotgun and rifle barrels 12 inches or more, less than 18 inches in length, from which only a single discharge can be made from either barrel without manual reloading, and shall include any such weapon which may be readily restored to fire. Such term shall not include a pistol or a revolver having a rifled bore, or rifled bores, or weapons designed, made, or intended to be fired from the shoulder and not capable of firing fixed ammunition.

That can be transferred to an individual (State dependent) on a Form 4 from an 02 FFL for $5 as an AOW.

IF you build it on a virgin receiver as an AOW, you need to pay $200 and put it on a Form 1.

Doesn't it need a stamp is the bbl is under 18"?

Yep, this.

Forgot about the OAL exempting it from AOW status.

Still, would probably draw questions if ever stopped by not-so-friendly LEOs and may not be legal under state laws.
Link Posted: 10/20/2013 4:15:24 PM EDT
Its not a "shotgun."

if its over 26" its not an AOW either. Its just a "firearm"

its even california legal IIRC.
Link Posted: 10/20/2013 4:15:43 PM EDT
yes sir captain obvious sir
Link Posted: 10/20/2013 4:15:48 PM EDT
To be legal it has to be a "firearm" meaning it isnt a shotgun or pistol or rifle per ATF. 18 inch rule applies to shotgun only.........that gun is a  firearm by definition..

as long as overall length is 26.1 inches or more it is kosher and there is an ATF letter floating around specifically stating this fact.
Link Posted: 10/20/2013 4:15:58 PM EDT

manufacturer claims no, I don't buy it either but I have never read up on this stuff as it would be illegal in NY anyway
Couldn't it be put on a pistol permit?

Its not a pistol because it is not designed or intended to be fired with one hand.

Yep. becomming pretty common actually. especially now that pistol grip 870's are readily available and not limited to the Mossberg 500 PG as the starting point.

If it never had a stock.

If it's over 26".

If it's not concealed.

If it's smooth bore.



It might be legal. Depends on you local laws.
