    No it was about whether possession of a pistol, and the parts that could be used to make a rifle or SBR, constituted the making of an SBR (Constructive Possession as some would say). The court ruled no but in doing so they also stated going back and forth between the pistol and rifle was not an SBR, either.

    Anyone with an AR SBR or 3 should just get another AR lower and SBA3 it.

    Then when you want to rock an AR pistol or need to roll across state lines and forgot to file your SBR paperwork, just take your upper off the SBR and put it on the pistol lower.

    This is just NOT true for pistol to rifle and back to pistol (outside of SBR discussion and the point of this thread): - https://www.atf.gov/firearms/qa/can-...tering-firearm

    Can I lawfully make a pistol into a rifle without registering that firearm?
    Assuming that the firearm was originally a pistol, the resulting firearm, with an attached shoulder stock, is not an NFA firearm if it has a barrel of 16 inches or more in length. Pursuant to ATF Ruling 2011-4, such rifle may later be unassembled and again configured as a pistol. Such configuration would not be considered a “weapon made from a rifle” as defined by 26 U.S.C. § 5845(a)(4).

    [26 U.S.C. § 5845, 27 C.F.R. § 479.11; ATF Ruling 2011-4]

    ! IIRC that was already previously established. To

    IIRC we had already known and established that in the beginning of this thread and we were talking about guns born as rifles . Context always matters.
