    here is a copy of an email i got from tom casperson in regards to MI SBR/SBS.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Dear Robert:



    Thank you for your e-mail. Currently legislation is being drafted that will clarify the legality of short-barreled rifles and shotguns under Michigan Law as it is constitutionally allowed under Federal law. When there is a bill number assigned, I will let you know so you can track its progress on the Michigan Legislature website.

    I appreciate hearing from you regarding this issue.



    Sincerely,





    Tom Casperson

    State Senator

    District 38

    This thread tells us not much. How does the law read now? What is it you guys are trying to get changed? I'd be interested in knowing some of the specifics. For instance, how do you define short barrel rifles or shotguns? I've never heard of laws like these. And being a NYer I thought I'd heard of every law imaginable.

    Well......Federal law says that you can own a rifle with a barrel length of 16" or more and a shotgun barrel 18" or more with limited hassle. You can get permission from the Feds for rifle barrels shorter than 16" or shotgun barrels shorter than 18". Hence SBR and SBS. Now you can only do this IF YOUR STATE ALLOWS IT.

    michigan also uses overall length for sbr/sbs, and unlike federal law they use with the weapon fully collapsed or at it's shortest OAL.

    To the OP, did Mr Casperson ever get back to you about that legislation?
