Who has the SBR/SBS in here

If you have a SBR/SBS and did your own paperwork would you mind PM'ing me? You can do it on the open forum if you want just figured PM would be private.

I am going to be submitting a couple tax requests while I am home on R&R this month and I have some questions.

I have 5 AR15 lowers that are still bare with no solid plans for them yet. I would like to build a .22lr SBR as short as can be for a stand alone or a host gun for a Gemtech Outback that I have. Maybe a 5.56/.223 10.0" in SBR and a 9mm SBR with as short a barrel as I can get a gas system to work with for suppressor also.

If I have the coin maybe a SBS out of a elcheapo Mossy Maverick or used 500.

Of course with a post like that you got to end it with one of these

Just fill out a Form 1. It follows the same exact procedures as the Form 4.

Only difference is that on Form 1 made items, you must engrave your name (or trusts) and city and state on the receiver/barrel in a visible readily readible area.

I built an SBR last year and wished I had used them. I had mine done at a local engraving shop. Didn't turn out bad, but if I were gonna do another one I would use Orion. I have talked to the owner and he seems like a great guy. If you have any other questions, feel free to pm me.

Never wrap it up, never pull out. Just grind up the morning after pill in her scrambled eggs at sunrise, she'll appreciate that you made her breakfast.

At what point in the process do you need to have the device engraved? Is it legal to have the device and tax stamp together without the engraving or do you have to wait until the engraving is complete to final assemble the device?

Im sure theirs a lull in which you can not have your device engraved and the time your stamp is in your hand. But what that is, I dont know.

Ive never heard of anyone getting in trouble for the engraving not being there, but it is a requirement by law.

Most seem to have the engraving done within the 90+ day waiting period of getting approval.

Thanks David, the plan is to set aside a few lowers for SBRs and also to buy a shotgun to set aside as a SBS. Then turn all the paperwork and checks in before my R&R is over.

That way the wait will not hurt so bad because I will be in Afg during the whole process.

Quick hijack...

What would the process be to register/make legal something like this from a stock 870?

I just got back three lowers from Orion-Arms, engraved on the trigger well. They look great super fast turn around and they were 65 each with 18$ S&H.

I am just speaking outloud here correct me if I am wrong.

You shipped directly to them and they shipped back to YOUR FFL? Who did you use for the transfer?

Have you ever had them do any work? How is there pricing?

Yeah laser engraving is much more accurate, but it usually isn't very deep. I could probably get pretty damn creative with that much detail.

its deep enough for BATFE specs ;-)

call them to verify pricing but last time was $53 for 2 lines engraved for SBS/SBR,
basically 45 + 8 for return shipping

they do awesome custom engraving too
