MAJOR props to Nick for the quality Magpul accessories: flip up BUIS, ambi sling mount, sling and mags. Will mount the sling soon.

All the punks better stay off my lawn now. :D

Tax stamp? Is it full auto?

Id say that i doubt its full auto, but i dont know for sure, it definitely has a short barrel on it and to have one you need a tax stamp.

Tax stamp? Is it full auto? He said "SBR Content." A "Short Barreled Rifle" is a Title II firearm just like a machine gun.

Is it like that in all states? I sure hope not.

Is it like that in all states? I sure hope not. It is FEDERAL law, and has been since 1934.

The National Firearms Act of 1934 split firearms into two groups: those regulated under "Title I" are standard rifles, pistols, and shotguns. Those regulated under "Title II" are machine guns, short barreled rifles (under 16" barrel), short barreled shotguns (under 18" barrel), silencers, desructive devices (explosives and also rifled firearms over .50 cal), and "Any Other Weapons" which include pen guns, cane guns, pistols with a vertical foregrip, and smooth-bore pistols among other things.

Posession of any of those without first filing with the ATF and obtaining a cancelled "tax stamp" is a federal felony.

That's a great looking rig, doc!

I handled an AR 15 with a short barrel some time ago, and was amazed by the difference in weight, and the ability to switch from one target to another quickly. That's on my short list of projects!

We're looking forward to a full range report from you soon, doc! :cool:

Range report? ;)

I only intend to use it for suppressive fire while MrsDoc gets her dogs and computers loaded up for a getaway.

Sweet gun. I have some catching up to do!

FirearmsEnthusiast isn't the first international member here, who's illustrated the absurdity of our NFA laws. There's little we can offer you, as far as logical reasoning goes. You guys can chop down a rifle, and probably a shotgun too, at will, but we have to jump through nonsensical US government hoops.

Nice lookin' shorty! Congrats.

Nice shorty! Do you like the magpul MBUS sights? I've been considering picking up a set since they are about half the price of troy.
I'd like to do a SBR but figure a suppressor will be necessary also since they aren't exactly quiet, so that's $400 just in stamps for one rifle.
Why oh why can't we just use one of those "print your own stamps from home" programs for NFA stuff :p

I put a Noveske FH on an SBR and it's surprisingly quiet from the shooters perspective. It sort of funnels all the sound and blast forward I guess, but without it the rifle is pretty brutal to shoot.

TexasRifleman, would you say it's comparable to a 16" AR? It would be nice to save on another stamp if it's not too bad. I think the noveske fire breathing pig FHs look great on a SBR to boot.

Hey Doc,
Sweet looking SBR. I am in the process of setting up a trust to get one of these babies. Whats the length of the Barrel? also which platform was your SBR built on?
Thanks,
Jerome

Sabre Defence 11.5"

Shot it for the first time last Sat. morning.

Sighted in the Eotech.

No problems and shot accurately at 50yds indoor, standing, offhand.

And I'm no marksman.

It should work well for post-hurricane perimeter defense and supressive fire.;)

TexasRifleman, would you say it's comparable to a 16" AR? It would be nice to save on another stamp if it's not too bad.

From the shooters perspective it's about the same as a 16" AR, yes.

I really like it for times I don't want to shoot with a suppressor.

Took a carbine class with an SBR and a standard cage flash hider and no one in the class would shoot next to me, the blast was so annoying :) I put the Noveske on and the complaints stopped.

And I agree, they look pretty cool as well :)
