    :confused: Now I've trying to get the the bottom of this for a while so if you have already helped you don't have to answer again - Thats where the problem is, It seems know one knows for sure! Some said they did and they were wrong and vice-versa. Here goes I bought "The Complete Glock Reference Guide" and on page 188 they show the Mech Tech carbine model, (That I am not intrested in at all) and below they show a Glock with a barrel that looks to be 18" long. The book said all you have to do is drop it in, beef up your recoil spring, and your good. Now the reason I'm after one is because I have a fully tricked out G17L with a scope and the works. I recently discovered that they make a detachable stock which I want very badly as well and have access to - but I was told that then it would be illegal without the barrel: SBR. I love my Glocks along with all of my firearms and I'm not going to do anything to screw that up. So if anyone has knowledge on this subject please help. I really want this to happen, I know the parts exist- just hard to find. Also If you know of a company that makes there own barrels (18") I'm willing to pay to have one made. One more thing to add- I discovered another method that I believe I understand, basically you have a extended threaded barrel, and with couple extra pieces and a longer barrel you can go that way? Someone please let me know what I have to do to get this done legally. -SMOKES-

    I only have one piece of advice.

    Write to the ATF, and get a response back IN WRITING about what will be legal, if possible. DO NOT take the word of people on the internet in legal matters. You can find numbers to contact the ATF from the atf.gov web site. You can hire a lawyer to help you figure out what's legal if you're having trouble understanding. But for goodness sakes, contact the ATF about what's legal. Since they can arrest you, their opinion is probably important...

    A barrel extension counts for barrel length as long as it is PERMANENTLY attached with a pin, solder or welding. Just threading it on is not enough.

    I would err on the side of safety. If you possess a pistol AND a stock that fits on it, other than a bona fide antique like an early Browning, you will be presumed to have intent to assemble an SBR, and the means of doing so. Or why else do you have the components?

    Get the long barrel FIRST.
