    Does anyone know where I can purchase a stock for a Glock. I know they make shoulder stocks that attach to Glocks. Also, I know this would be subject to the $200 tax stamp. Pictures would also be helpful. Thanks.

    Thanks for the post. The stock I am looking for is a folding one I believe. Basically, you keep the pistol as a pistol and the only thing that changes is that you have a shoulder stock. It looks really cool. I saw it a few years back.

    Thanks to everyone who posted thus far. That helps. Does anyone have any first-hand experience with their Glock stocks? How much do they aid in accuracy? Which are the quality/poor stocks? If I get a single stock and want to exchange it for use on multiple Glocks, do I have to get tax stamps for every Glock or do I just need one for the stock? Thanks.

    The gun will be registered as a Short Barreled Rifle. The stock is just a componant. Registering one Glock as an SBR, installing the stock, and then swapping that stock to one of your Title I Glock handguns would be a recipe for a federal felony.

    Be aware that registering your Title I Glock handgun as a Title II Short-Barreled Rifle means that you have to follow the same rules with it (whether configured as a rifle or a handgun) as you would with a machine gun or other Title II weapon. Even without the stock on it, you cannot allow others to borrow it, have to be careful how you sell it, and cannot cross state lines with it without filing a form 5320.20 ahead of time, etc.

    It isn't a minefield, exactly, but you do need to be careful to know and follow the rules.

    You'd register each one as an SBR so you'd pay the tax man each time.

    Unless you register the pistol as an SBR before buying and attaching the stock, yes.

    Now that SBR's are legal in Alabama, I seriously thought about getting the stock and SBR'ing one of my pistols. But I travel to TN and Ga quite frequently and would have to keep the transport paperwork filed regularly.

    For the cost of the stamp and stock, I got a Keltec S2K and along with my G19 (carry reciprocity between our states) I think I'm GTG.

    Yes. And so would this:

    Notice that these are Israeli products, where the laws are quite different. Imported here, the do present a certain risk to the uninformed buyer.

    If I could get the magpul folding flashlight glock SBR thing I'd get a stamp for one of mine. All the other kits don't offer anything that appealing to me over a sub 2k which only cost me about $70 more than a stamp alone.

    In my experiance, on small handguns like Glocks with short sight radous?
    Very little.

    Pistol sights end up too close to your eye to aligned them precisely.
    What you gain in "steadier" you lose in good sight alignment.

    Adding stocks on handguns went out of favor with the worlds militarys about 100 years ago, along with long barrels on handguns, because they were not worth the trouble.

    The only glock stock I have used is the one in the photo below. The dot sight is better than the irons (or plastic in this case) but the stock makes it much better full auto.

    I believe you can register it as a shoulder stocked pistol, which is slightly different than a short barreled rifle. You might even get away with putting a number on the stock, and registering the stock AS the weapon, usable on different pistols (as suppressors are). IF BATF stamps its approval on paperwork submitted as such, then it will be legally registered as such. You never know which way they are doing it from week to week.

    No, there isn't a separate distinction made for a shoulder-stocked pistol. If you attach a stock the pistol becomes a rifle. If the barrel is under 16" it is a short-barreled rifle. Those are the only two possibilities.

    No, you can't do that. You must register the firearm itself as a Title II short-barreled rifle. The stock itself is not a registered/regulated item.

    Suppressors are, themselves, defined as firearms by the NFA. (That doesn't make sense, but it is so.) They are registered individually and can be moved to any host firearm. This is the same way registered auto-sears work. They are, themselves, legally a machine gun and so can be moved to work in any other host firearm. Stocks are just parts.

    Can you show any examples where this has been done? It is completely unrelated to the text of 26 U.S.C. 5845, and I don't believe it has ever happened.

    Not quite, the one in my photo above is a machine gun. No such thing as an SBR machine gun.

    I thought about adding that, but figured it wasn't applicable to the question at hand. But, of course, if you have a registered MG, SBR, AOW, etc. rules don't apply.
