Well, teh good news is that SC just legalized Class III !!!!!!!!!!! Can someone give me a heads up as to what are the Federal rules for the legal ownership of a semi-auto Short Barrelled Rifle??? Do you beed a pistol lower??? Do you need a preban lower??? Do you payt the $200 tax??? Any help would be appreciated.

Here is my take on the federal issues. A SBR is still a rifle, so pre/postban rules apply. It is $200 and the full process. SBR only allows for a barrel length of <16 inches and/or an overall length of <26 inches (with stock extended/unfolded). You can use a pistol lower, or a rifle lower. In my opinion, using a pistol lower would be a waste as they are much more rare, and you will have to do paperwork on either no matter what. You can't do the reverse and make a pistol out of a rifle, if that's what you are getting at.. Edited to be more clear.

It doesn't matter because once its a SBR the stock isn't necessary anyway so a pistol lower would be a TOTAL waste. BISHOP
