Short Barreled Rifles (SBR’s)
Short-barreled rifle (SBR) is a legal designation in the United States, referring to a shoulder-fired, rifled firearm with a barrel length of less than 16 inches or overall length of less than 26 inches. In the United States, an SBR is an item regulated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (BATF) as an NFA firearm. In the absence of local laws prohibiting ownership, American civilians may own an SBR provided it is registered with the BATF, and a $200 tax is paid prior to taking possession of, or creating the firearm. Remember, if you put a stock on a handgun, you just illegally converted your weapon, and committed a felony! Get all paperwork processed FIRST!
