Pistol to Rifle Conversion

The NFA can be confusing, but one of things not regulated in creating a rifle out of a pistol. There are several pistols worth looking into to turn in rifles. There are AR-15 pistols, AK-47 pistols, Glocks, and many others including new ones coming on the market even today.

What can be confusing is what is the difference between a rifle, a short barreled rifle (SBR), or any other weapon (AOW). A rifle is a firearm that came from the manufacturer with a butt stock and at least a 16in barrel. An SBR is the same, but has a barrel under 16in and is controlled by the BATFE which requires a tax stamp. An AOW is also controlled by the BATFE and requires a tax stamp and is a catch all category to include things like a pistol that uses a forward grip, pen guns, cane guns, etc.

We will be focusing on the pistol to rifle conversion today and I will be using a Draco AK-47 pistol as an example because I am currently working on this as a project. Converting a Draco pistol to an SBR is as easy as apply for a tax stamp and then slapping a butt stock on the end once it is approved. From there you can change it up pretty much however you want.

When turning a pistol into a rifle you have many more options to attain the 16in barrel. The easiest thing to do is get a muzzle device that is the length needed to measure 16 inches from the bolt face to the end of the device when mounted. This can be accomplished by several different means. Short barrel extensions can be purchased to lengthen the barrel for your muzzle device desired, or even extended muzzle devices can sometimes be purchased. You can also purchase a fake, or real, sound suppressor and use that. The key to useing any of these devices is that it is “permanently attached” This is where it becomes a little bit of a gray area. Most people get away with a tack weld, and some weld the whole device on. In my, non- legal opinion, I would use the tack weld.

When dealing with NFA type things it is good to ask around with credible people about info to help you out as being caught with an illegal firearm can be rough on your pocket book and can land you in prison for a long time. Don’t be afraid of it though. Just be sure to know the laws!

Building an AR-15 SBR on a Budget: Part 1 – Paperwork

This is chronicling the build of an NFA Regulated firearm in the State of Arizona. This is not intended to be a “How To” guide. Consult all federal, state and local laws before getting involved with any NFA regulated firearm or device.

This will be the first in a long series of posts about building an AR-15 SBR.  The first step is filling out the required paperwork for the BATFE and the Sheriff’s Office.  If one has a Legal Trust, then it is exempt from the Sheriff sign off.

This build will be on the ATF Form 1, the Application to Make and Register a firearm.  Two copies of everything will be needed.  The form 1, along with a fingerprint card and Certification of Compliance (Certification of Citizenship) and a passport size photo.  On top of that a check for $200 for the Tax Stamp.

Before Mailing everything to the ATF, the County Sheriff must sign off on the paperwork.  This can take up to 30 days.

Once sent to the ATF, the current average for processing is about 6 months.  Hopefully this will speed up.

For now my AR-15 SBR is just a lower receiver and a bunch of paperwork.  In time it will become an  Mk18 mod 0 clone.

Building a Rifle: Making a Checklist.

I recently decided to build another AR-15 on a tight budget. This time though, I will be doing a 10.5″ SBR, specifically a Mk18 Mod 0 Clone. Look forward to a series of posts on the steps of my build including my paperwork, but that I will save for the series.

I find that if one wants to build a rifle, specifically an AR-15 platform rifle, that making a checklist of parts creates not only goals to accomplish, but also not forgetting any key components. Adding up the cost also drives the need to meet those goals and develop a timeline for completion. My timeline for completion is 5 months. The parts listed below are not only the ones that I will use, but the cost of them per the current market.

Lets take my newest undertaking. My first goal is the lower receiver. Here are the key components and costs. Being that I am building an SBR and required to register it with the BATFE and pay a $200 tax stamp, those costs will be included.

[X]Tax stamp: $200

[X] Lower Reciever: $100

[ ] Daniel Defense Lower Parts Kit: $90

[ ] Noveske QD Endplate: $30

[ ] TangoDown BG17: $37

[ ] Mil-Spec Buffer Tube Kit w/ H-buffer: $70

[ ] Vltor IMod Stock: $95

Next is the upper receiver. Keep in mind this a complete rifle minus optics and a light.

[ ] LMT 10.5″ Upper reciever: $485

[ ] LMT Bolt Carrier Group: $135

[X] Daniel Defense Mk18 RIS II FSP: $343

[ ] Daniel Defense Fixed Rear Sight: $65

[ ] BCM Gunfighter Mod4 Charging Handle: $45

[ ] TangoDown Scar Rail Panels x3: $42

[ ] Gear Sector QD Swivel Mount: $39

[ ] Magpul RVG: $25

[ ] Surefire FA556-212 Flash Hider: $130

[ ] Vtac MkII Sling: $41

The “X”‘s indicate pieces already paid for. It also sets the tone for expenses to cover each month. As it looks right now, completing the lower will be the next step towards the complete rifle. As stated before, look forward to an complete series of building a top quality SBR or standard rifle step by step while on a tight budget.
