Nice! Was there any special paperwork or other BATFE BS required for the upper?

Nope … just an accessory delivered to my door. That pic is several years old - need to retake in current configuration plus get the 10 into the pic.

Interesting. I thought for sure something would be needed for turning a pistol into a rifle with a shoulder stock. Isn’t that what all the BS over the Sig brace was about on AR pistols because people were shouldering it and it caught the attention of the BATFE?

Put some new grips on my Springfield a couple weeks ago. Good feel and looks good too

@Wedge DANGER DANGER! ATF has ruled shouldering a braced pistol does not change the configuration of the pistol to a rifle. However, altering the brace in any way to make the brace permanently attached (red loctite) or altering the brace to make it more comfortable to shoulder are both big NO-NO’s. The LOP can not be longer than 13.5 inches either. I believe the ATF thinks SBR laws are stupid and relaxing the brace rules kind of fixes that. Heck, they even make 6 position adjustable braces now. Shoulder away!

Good to know, but it was definitely an issue for a while. And, are the SBR/AOW “laws” actually laws or just BATFE regulations? If it’s the latter, they can easily get rid of that garbage if they wanted to.

@Wedge law of the land drafted, endorsed, and shoved forth in concert with the NRA all packaged into the 1934 National Firearms Act.

Thanks for the info. I’ve never dealt with any NFA stuff, but I do want to get a suppressor one day. It’s that damned wait that keeps putting me off when I read about people waiting two years or whatever for their paperwork. :roll_eyes:

Same. Hard to spend $1000, give or take, plus the $200 tax stamp only to wait 9-15 months. A coworker is towards the back end of his wait for a 7.62 suppressor, gonna put it on my .300 BLK pistol and have some fun.

I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s some law saying you can’t even do that because it’s a “transfer” since you’re not the registered owner.

What Kona said plus …

The Mechtech makes the pistol into a rifle rather than into a short barreled rifle. It starts as a pistol and can be returned to pistol with a slide swap.

Also, I can’t take it to Cali. Shucks I say.

I was just reading about that. Hey, guess what? Ol’ Wedge actually learned something today. :rofl:

@Wedge at the beginning of the year I’m gonna buy 2-3 cans from Thompson machine. I kind of had my nose in the air about suppressors on 556 when you’re still wearing ear pro. But I’ve seen them in person now and have a new perspective.

Thank you Sir’ The First time John did a Desert Sand on it and it wasn’t the Burn’t Bronze I was looking to get ! So this is the Redone Version, 3# trigger and all the fine Tuning Internal work along with a larger Fiber Optic Front Sight, It really is such a fine weapon to Shoot and I always love the Reaction of People when I have to use a public Range! With all the W.T.F. Is that ? then theirs the Fire Ball’s and Hallo’s depending on the light of day. And the nice thing is when my S.S.I.Check is Late! I can use the 9mm barrel !:sunglasses:
