OK, I don't want to know about a gun that I need a tax stamp or Class III for. I'm asking about my regular, post ban Bushmaster Dissipator. It has a 16" bbl, and standard A2 buttstock. I've thought about getting a shorter, fake collapsible stock for it, to further reduce length. What is the legal overall length?

I believe 30 inches. But I'm not too sure. I'd like to know for sure myself.

Yes. For a rifle it's 16" bbl and 26" overall.

That's correct unless restricted by state or local law.

By federal law, to not be a Short Barreled Rifle, the rifle must have: a 16" barrel and be over 26" long with the telescoping/collapsing stock extended, if so equipped. So, theoretically, you could have a gun only 16" long with the stock collapsed, such as an NEF rifle with a folding stock, as long as the stock extended 10". Kharn

Very interesting, I know that in FL it is 16" for a rifle bbl and 18" for a shotgun bbl. Anybody know FL's standard for Overall Length of a rifle?? Also, the length for a shotgun would be nice too.
