    Default AR Pistol Notice

    Any of you fellows that have an AR pistol need to check into the new regulations that just went into effect this month.

    ATF has taken steps to redefine almost every AR pistol with any accessory added into a SBR, making the owners instant felons without the owner's knowledge.

    I am not qualified to explain or interpret the new rules and I have already watched videos of three different attorneys, each one giving a different definition of the new regulations.

    If the regulations are to hard to understand or you just don't want to deal with them there will be an amnesty period until December so you can turn your guns over to the ATF, give up, roll over and play dead.

    If they don't step back from these illegal "laws" and keep doing the door to door illegal seizures they are going to need a whole more federal prisons

    When someone, anyone keeps on pushing for trouble; they usually find it.

    I'll have to look into that. But, if you have an ar pistol it is okay to make it a rifle. Just not vice versa. So, take the upper off and form 1 the lower as an SBR.

    Just recently bought an AR pistol. Would have loved putting a pad on it but that would have made it into an sbr. Makes me wonder if they will try to push and say any type of sling or carry handle makes into one as well in the near future.

    Don't give them any ideas Xnatos!

    You are also facing the possibility that the pistol you just purchased, in its stock and unmodified form, may not meet their new definition of a pistol.

    I am presently trying to figure out how a firearm that is not allowed to have a buttstock of any kind can be restricted to a length of pull of less than 10".

    LOP is measured from end of buttstock to trigger!

    Then there is the fact that most of the commercial pistol buffer tubes are longer than the now mandated 6 1/2" buffer tube length limit from end of tube to back of frame.

    The new definitions do not just refer to AR pistols.

    I also shoot silhouette matches and many of our silhouette pistols use rifle type scopes, which turns our match pistols into instant SBRs, buy their new definition, even if it is a break open single shot.

    Yes, they are mandating the type of sights you can have into their points system.

    I am proud to say that my district Rep to Congress, Thomas Massie, fought this one tooth and toenail to the bitter end. I watched the hearing. The ruling party was voting on butt kick emotion about items they had never seen or used. Most of them could not tell you butt from muzzle on any firearm made. My rep spent nearly an hour arguing with an ATF spokesman that was trying to convince the committee that a stabilizer brace made an AR shoot full auto. The committee was in full "we don't want to hear the facts!" mode.

    Thomas Massie is a good one. We need more like him.
