    Which method is the easiest, less painless and quickest when it comes to getting a SBR

    Buying in SBR form from a legit (legal) gun store or getting a SBR ready rifle and going through the process later

    Making your own SBR on a Form 1 takes a lot less waiting time than buying one on a Form 4.................

    You can't SBR until you get your tax stamp in hand..........you can have everything ready to do it, though...

    Also realize if you tire of it , it will always be an SBR until you notify BATFE to declassify it and return it to the original configuration. . You won't be able to just put a long barrel back on it and sell it off......used SBR's are a hard sell like used suppressors........mostly because they have to go the Form 4 route with long wait times.........

    Form 1, making the SBR yourself, is a much quicker process. My last form 1 took 11 days in December. My last form 4 just came back last week and took 7 months.

    I got my efile form 1 back in 10 days last month. On top of filing the paperwork, you also have to have the firearm engraved with your name or trust and the city where SBR was "manufactured" before assembly of parts.

    So, this would be the better choice

    POLISH GROM AK47 SBR READY RIFLE

    There's also a Romanian version

    Does anyone else make a under folder SBR
    Have you considered an AK pistol? Get your stamp and then attach whatever stock you want without having to deal with that pinned and possibly welded faux suppressor. Might open up your options unless your set on an UF. Also something to keep in mind is your intended purpose. Unless you're gonna run suppressed, your shorty AK is gonna be a flame thrower.

    Few ?'s for OP:
    What's your goal/use for this weapon?
    Have you tried out a regular Zastava underfolder like ZPAPM70UF? Considered a rifle so no fuss and quite short
    What caliber are you after? Has bearing on barrel length usefulness...MAWP
    Draco with brace is another route

    The three reasons I'm looking at a underfolder are..

    1. Before Obama I was a gun collector and had several AK's, my favorite was a Romanian underfolder, it was more comfortable on my shoulder than the plastic or wood stocks

    2. When folded it's streamlined with the weapon

    3. Underfolder pistols/SBRs are rare/unique

    It's going to be suppressed, for home defense

    Home defense

    I have CQC/CQB training, a 16in barrel rifle can be used, but shorter is better

    As per research they don't have a 556 UF SBR, so it would have to be 7.62x39

    Build your own. Or, get a tax stamp, and have a smith build it for you.

    Eli
    I know nothing on building firearms

    Wouldn't having a gunsmith build one be the same as just going to a gun store and buying one off the shelf

    Off the shelf =$$ get it today.
    Custom build= $$$$$$$ get it next year, Maybe?
    I meant gunsmith being the same as one off the shelf, built as a SBR compared to one being modified to make it a SBR

    As stated earlier, modifying a rifle would be the best course over getting one directly
