I have a "pistol only" marked lower receiver. Can I put 16 inch upper on it? If not, what is the longest barreled upper I can put on it?

Thanks,

I'm not completely sure of the "legal" answer to your question, but my guess is that you can add a 16" or longer upper and a buttstock to a pistol lower. My thinking lies with the fact that you can buy carbine kits for alot of popular pistols on the market. ie. 1911, Glock, M92, etc.

I'm sure someone who is more versed in the legal side of things will happen upon this post shortly.-COPE

You are reading into his question.

He didn't ask anything about putting a buttstock on it.

That's true, but as I read the original post, I assumed barrel/buttstock that was the way he was leaning. I just couldn't figure out why someone would want 16" on a "pistol".

Being marked "pistol only" has NO legal, atf, or any other value.

Its a marketing gimmick. You could have it marked "Superhero Operators Only" if you'd like :wink:

It only matters that the transfer forms are marked that it is for a pistol right?

So long as you have at least a 16" barreled upper on it BEFORE you attach the buttstock, you're legal.


Hooking a buttstock up to your AR15 pistol (with less than 16" bbl) will get you throwed in the pokey (unless you have a tax stamp).
