How is the hk sk5 legal?
Would it be legal to get a scorpion carbine and switch it to a bull pup?
It’s not legal here. You have 3 options-
1 big kid pants/stop caring
2 move out of ma
3 get an 07 and attendant state dealer license and become exempt.
Yes, you could do that, so I guess there's a 4th option. But it still blows chunks.
As Mike said, the point of the pistols is to wallhack the NFA.
That's why I haven't done it.Yes, you could do that, so I guess there's a 4th option. But it still blows chunks.
By SBRing it you get rid of the best part of a braced pistol- which is not having to file 5320s, and the fact that it's not NFA.
You still have the magazine problem to deal with unless you're pulling the "dont care" lever at that point.
that is a whole other can of worms that somebody may or may not want to go down.
The end result (IMO) is a 100% more functional end product.
Yeah, with 10-round limit I feel at this point a fixed mag AR lower is an easier way to go.Get the carbine, SBR it*, and then cry every time you put a 10rd mag into it.
I'd actually love to get a Scorpion, but it's such a shame to have to be satisfied with 10rd mags. Too bad it isn't using Colt/Uzi pattern.Yeah, with 10-round limit I feel at this point a fixed mag AR lower is an easier way to go.
8" barrel with flash suppressor, 10 round AR fixed lower, folding stock.
All mass legal if I understand correctly.
It's kind of a wash. If you buy 16" MA compliant, you have a rifle stock already. You can then buy a $260 barrel/shroud kit and DIY the replacement (unlike an MP5, this can be done). You can then enjoy having both barrel lengths or sell the 16" one for like $75-100., thus being about the same as buying a pistol and later buying a stock. Plus, you don't have to convince someone in a free state to break down the pistol for you in two shipments instead of just selling the pistol to a free stater.Yor best bet if you want to do an SBR is to find a pistol out of state, transfer the frame, file your form one and then assemble parts with stock. cost of pistol + $200 for atf+ $175 for a stock plus shipping and transfer fees.... why pay for new hand guard and barrel or to have is cut down.
You can like what you like, but I would personally want something with pre ban mag availability.
Anything that takes Glock mags
Tavor (9mm) takes colt pattern mags.
If you don't want to play the pistol games, you could get a carbine and swap the barrel or chop the barrel. AFTER an approved Form 1 that is..
