There is a score card that virtually all
There is a checklist to determine if a pistol is a SBR, and almost all "large format" pistols will fail (by design). Just removing the brace isn't enough to prevent it from being considered a SBR, it's only one of the considerations. There will be an injunction on this. The BATFE cannot create law out of thin air.
As per the FAQ presently removing the brace brings the firearm into compliance. The factoring criteria affect firearms build/sold AFTER 1/31/2023.
Just as the GCA of '68 required all firearms to have a serial number... it only applies to firearms built after the effective date.
