If I get the license or whatever it is called for a 7 in ar rifle and later add a suppressor and or forward vertical grip do I have to reapply for each of the regulated additions?

If said sbr were purchased with the suppressor and grip installed would that just be a one time fee of $200.00 ?

Thanks for responses...I am completely ignorant of these rules.

Two separate items, the SBR and the suppressor will each need their own.

You can always buy the suppressor and pay the $200 tax and purchase your 7" barrel and permanatly attach (weld) the suppressor to the barrel. The you would have a suppressed sbr and only one tax stamp. Your combined barrel length with permanately attached suppressor would have to be a total of 16 inches though so you may need to look at a 10.5 inch barrel depending he length of the can.

What suppressor are you going to run on a 7" barrel?

To answer the question if you have a rifle with a barrel less than 16" you need one tax stamp. If you get a suppressor it will always need a tax stamp. You can put a vert grip on a SBR with no additional tax stamp. Here I presume your concern is if you started with a pistol receiver then simply adding the vert grip would make it an AOW. If you register that lower as an SBR then there should be no issue adding a vert grip. A permanently attached suppressor that gives a barrel length of 16"(+) would only be one tax stamp for the suppressor (as stated above).

The reason it's only one stamp is because 16" isn't "short". It saves you a stamp but you can't move it from one host to another.

as Girodin asks: What Suppressor are you planning on running on a 7.5" barrel?

I'm having trouble finding anyone who warrants their cans on a barrel that short.

Forward grips are not regulated on rifles. You will need to pay $200 for your SBR and a separate $200 for your suppressor.

The only way to get around this, as mentioned, is to pay $200 tax on your suppressor and permanently attach it to a barrel such that the combined barrel length plus suppressor length is greater than 16". Thus, you'll have a suppressed rifle but it won't be an SBR and you'll save on that tax.

I was asking the suppressor question to get a better understanding of how the tax is assessed on the whole or the parts. Thanks for info. I think I will just go with the sbr stamp since I want the short barrel...I already have way to many 16 inch ar's.

The shortest ive seen a manf warrenty is 10.5" as the erosion from a 7" barrel is going to cook that can to death very quickly, not to mention a unstable bullet taking out the baffles. If I were you Id go with a 10.5 bbl, this way your can wont self destruct and youll have useable FPS out of the 10.5" vs 7.5"....just sayin;)

I'd go with either a 10.5" or 11.5" barrel for 5.56 AR.
