Some shops will not mark pistol on form 4473 when you buy stripped ar lower. Are there any shops locally that you know will? Should I order one with pistol engraved into receiver?

IM Sully and see if he has any marked Superior Arms lowers. Also call GunStop in Mtka.

You could try Hart Brother's out of Albert Lea. I'm sure that Milan could hook you up.

If you are using a lower for a pistol it MUST be marked for a pistol. If you do not and put a barrel under 16" on, it will be considered an SBR, and uncle same does not like to get jipped out of his $200 tax stamp.

You got a reference to that statement? Real pistols don't say "Pistol" on them. Why would a AR pistol be required to be marked.

The BATFE stance is, if it was never assembled as a rifle, it can be used to built into a pistol. Putting "pistol" or "receiver" on the 4473 is enough paperwork trail to show it wasn't sold as a rifle.

I think there are enough people to vouch on here that you are better safe than sorry.

See the pistol FAQ. It looks like the lower just needs to be transferred to you as a pistol. I didn't confirm this with ATF but it is consistant with what I've heard in the past.

He's probably referring to Sully with Defensive Edge.
