    Anyone know if you can get a short barrel rifle permit on a rifle you've constructed yourself?

    Sort of...

    Only you've got your timeline wrong:

    Make rifle, apply for permit, be Bubba's girlfriend for 10 years.

    Apply for permit, make rifle, be happy.

    Well, you could construct the rifle, apply for the permit, then sbr it.

    But yeah, you've got a point. Takes "infringing" to a whole new level.

    Apply now. If you're lucky you'll have an approved Form 1 back by Christmas.

    Mine's been pending since 4/28. Don't delay. If you really want a SBR, get your paperwork started. :D

    Do not purchase a barrel under 16" until you have your approved Form 1 in hand and your lower properly engraved. (Exception for AR-15 owners; if you have a lower registered as a pistol, you can put a short barrel on it but not a stock!)

    I'm about to start paperwork for a suppressor for when the FN F2000 becomes available next year. If it turns out to suck, I can make an AR or something similar for it instead. I was going to get a 30cal suppressor but I realized none of my approximately 30cal rifles could use it.

    I'm thinking Krinkov, making my own receiver. What do you mean by "properly engraved"?

    From a FAQ on Uzitalk which sums it up:

    Thanks for the reply--good information. Good suggestion on the trophy-shop--that's a lot of money to just scratch "mudpupppy's krink" with an awl!

    According to the guys on ar15.com, this guy does a nice job of engraving:

    If you are doing an AR15, you can buy an LMT manufactured lower from Lauer and they will engrave it for you.
    I got a couple done that way.
    They also sell a lower marked: "Pistol Only"
