    SBR hunting question. State line crossed.

    I am going for a deer hunt in Eastern WA. To get here we will be crossing to Oregon, and then back across North into WA for the hunt.
    If I separate the upper and lower and do not use or touch in OR do I need to file the 5320.20?

    Don't know for sure, (not a lawyer) but I'd suggest you find an alternate route.

    Maybe you could put a 16" upper on it for the trip, and the short upper on a pistol lower...

    To be by-the letter, just throw a 16”upper on it and keep the other separate.

    Out of my lane here but to my thinking the SN'd engraved lower "is" the SBR in the eyes of the ATF, doesn't matter if it has an upper attached or not. Kinda like with a M2 carbine, doesn't matter if has all M1 parts if receiver is marked M2 it's a machine gun in the eyes of the ATF.

    That is not correct. If an SBR lower is without an upper at all it is a lower. It is only an SBR if it is configured as one. With a 16" barrel it is a rifle.


    OP- put a brace on it while traveling. Problem solved.

    Wouldn’t you have to change the receive extension tube to do that?
    AQ planned for years and sent their A team to carry out the attacks, and on Flight 93 they were thwarted by a pick-up team made up of United Frequent Fliers. Many people look at 9/11 and wonder how we can stop an enemy like that. I look at FL93 and wonder, "How can we lose?". -- FromMyColdDeadHand

    Not an sb3. A pistol just has to be built as a pistol first, then can go back and forth as a rifle.
    Or just pull the stock off, and any vfg if you have one.

    If it is assembled or reassembled in a different state as a SBR a form 20 is needed. If you place a different non sbr upper on it ie 16” the SBR is no longer a SBR. I travel to other states with my SBR and I do the form 20. It takes about 2-3 month to get a approved. So you will need to plan ahead. I normally do year long form.

    Theoretically under FOPA86 you do not need to do anything except the storage requirements for the journey.
