What is the legality classification for a SBR (short barreled rifle) in NY. If I have a preban lower can I build a SBR. Im talking about 10 to 11 inch barrel with a collapsible stock and all the works. Would I need to put it on my pistol permit? If you could help lead me in the best direction to do this legally I would appreciate it.

I know you used to be able to build them if the were on a legitimate preban lower but I know for instance you cant build a postban pistol it has to be factory. This is what im told anyway. Half the people you talk to don’t know for sure so it is hard to get facts. Some say I can build a sbr on a preban lower some say they changed it. I know it sucks that I live in ny so don’t play you fiddle for me, ive heard all the crap already. I just have a question that I figured you guys would know. If you cant help than don’t give me sh*t .

The only way you can have one is to be a LEO and get a letter from your commish or chief stating that you are exempt from the states CPW statutes which refer to posession of SBR's, then you can apply to the BATF for your tax stamp.

I think I would learn to like the idea of a 16" barrel. I'm not an expert on laws, but I think a short barrel rifle is considered to be just like a machine gun if you get caught with it and don't have the proper permits, tax stamps, ect.. IMO just not worth it.

Well ill probably just buy a AR pistol and go that way. I have a pistol permit so ill do it like that. I just kinda like the SBR thing.
