If thers any gunsmiths or FFL holders out ther can you tell me if I'm wrong. Ok I'v looked at the ATF web page and read all that has to do with making guns. Anybody without a license that can legaly own a gun can make a rifle,shotgun,hand gun. as long as its not for profit. Rifle barrels can't be shorter than 16". Shotgun barrels can't be shorter than 18". Minamum length of a long gun is 26". You can put a stock on a hand gun if the barrel is at least 16" and the handgun with the stock on is no shorter than 26". I can't find anthing about making a hand gun out of a rifle or modifying a rifle. All the referance's on pistol grips are about assalt wepons. So I am thinking it's ok to put a pistol grip and a folding or removeable stock on a rifle as long as the rifle is with stock at least 26" long. Can I put a pistol grip on a rifle with a 16" or longer barrel to make it a handgun? Does this sound right or am I just trying to justify making what I want.
