Earlier today, BATFE released an Open Letter on the Redesign of “Stabilizing Braces.” This letter articulates BATFE’s official position on the use of pistol stabilizing braces like the Sig Sauer SB15. It concludes that “[a]ny person who intends to use a handgun stabilizing brace as a shoulder stock on a pistol (having a rifled barrel under 16 inches in length or a smooth bore firearm with a barrel under 18 inches in length) must first file an ATF Form 1 and pay the applicable tax because the resulting firearm will be subject to all provisions of the NFA.”

Placing an arm stabilizing brace in the pocket of the shoulder does not make your pistol an sbr, just like using a silencer as a door stop doesn't make it a door stop. Then shouldering the buffer tube would also constitute the pistol becoming an sbr. How corrupt can you get?? Anything for that $200. What a pack of whores.

Admit nothing.  Deny everything. Demand proof.
If we lie to the government, it's a crime. If the government lies to the people, it's called politics.

It would also be assumed that any pistol fired with two hands would also magically change its classification to an AOW as well.

I feel bad for a few people I know that went this route for a build. There are several people however who gave me a hard time about owning SBRs when I could have done it "the easy way". Those people I do not feel sorry for, in fact I am laughing a little bit. Or maybe a lot.
