    Those opinion letters (which I believe these all are. Correct me if I’m wrong) do go back and fourth a lot unfortunately, depending on what it is. Seems stuff like stocks, braces, NFA workarounds seem to change frequently, or depending on the mood of the person writing it at the time.

    At least that’s how it seems to me.

    My understanding is IF you have one of the C & R pistols which is legal with a original pattern shoulder stock (either a board or stock/holster) they are considered exempt from being deemed a SBR with stock attached. However, a reproduction stock (to my knowledge) has always been a no-no and not qualify for SBR-exempt status. Years ago, BATFE made some references to "period made reproductions" of shoulder stocks being acceptable. However, no other definitions, details or later letters seem to discuss this. My guess is someone "spoke out of turn" at the Bureau. In reading several comments from knowledgeable collectors on various forums, the rule of thumb is to only have a original, period stock with your C & R pistol.

    Back in the late 1980s (or early '90s), a small number of very accurate reproductions of the trials/prototype Polish P35 shoulder/holster stock were made (along with the P35 pistol as well). Some stocks were imported into the USA as were the new pistols. However, as reproductions, the holster/stock was not legal for use on either a original or new manufactured P35 (unless SBR status was applied for and granted). Some may recall many years ago the Colt M1911 board shoulder stocks with replacement mainspring housings (for attaching the stock to) which were on the market. Legal to sell but a Federal rap if you got caught with one attached to a pistol not registered as a SBR. My take is to always be on the solid side of compliance rather than the perimeter of it...

    I have a repro letter from ATF stating that for repair and replacement..reproduction stocks are ok.

    I have a repro stock with my Mauser C96.

    And I keep the letter with it.
