    Can you legally purchase and posses (but not install) a 14" shotgun barrel and then file your ATF paperwork to convert your shotgun into an SBS? Or do you have to have your tax stamp approved before purchasing or possessing the barrel?

    if you have the short bbl in the same location as the rec. that can be construed as constructive intent.
    keep it at moms house ;)

    It seems to reason that if you have filed the application for the rifle/sbs you would need to barrel to properly measure your "build". This whole constructive intent shit seems to be BS to me. I have a sawzall and a couple shotguns, I could easily cut them all down in about 10 minutes. I guess that is constructive intent???

    Follow up SBS question.

    ATF Form 1, Section (e) and (f).

    If your barrel length is 14" and fill out your paperwork with an overall length calculated using a collapsible M-4 style stock (guessing about 36" in overall length) - if you later change the stock to a pistol grip - would you be required to file another Form 1 showing the shorter overall length (w/ the pistol grip) and thus incur another $200 fee?

    I'm not asking for the pros and cons of a stock versus pistol grip. I'm just interested in the legal aspects, in case anyone has ever run across a similar scenario.

    Thanks.
