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?
You are reading into his question.COPE said: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
It only matters that the transfer forms are marked that it is for a pistol right?Robpiat said: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:
So long as you have at least a 16" barreled upper on it BEFORE you attach the buttstock, you're legal.prdtr86 said:so can you put a buttstock on a pistol lower with a 16'' upper?? i thought you couldnt put a buttstock on it for legal reasons....
