    Ar pistol as aow for a fixed stock?

    I just ordered my first ar pistol. Wanting to put a fixed stock on it, LEGALLY. My Google fu currently is weak and couldn’t find what I was looking for. Can I file it with the atf as “aow” and then be allowed to put a fixed stock and fore grip on it? And to travel across state lines is it better to take everything off and just put the pistol brace back on?

    Using a fixed buttstock would convert the pistol into a rifle, not an AOW. Whether or not you've made a NFA-regulated SBR or not would depend on barrel length and OAL. Installing a VFG on an AR pistol would make it an AOW if the minimum OAL wasn't met.

    If you want a stock, e-file a Form 1 as an SBR. My last one got approved in 10 business days.

    To travel either submit for interstate travel approval or return the item to non-NFA configuration (either a pistol or 16” rifle). Though the receiver is on the registry as an SBR, it’s only actually an SBR if it’s assembled as such.

    Yep! And the one before that was 7 days.

    Ok that’s what I’ll do after I get the pistol. Thanks.
