    Unfortunately, barrels shorter than 16 inches are NFA items and require the $200 tax stamp, but once thats done good to GO!

    you can build the 11.5 as either a NFA tax stamp rifle. a regular 16 inch carbine with a permanent 5.5 inch tack welded on flash hider. or a pistol with a pistol buffer tube assembly which can not be attached to a stock.

    i have a 11.5 inch barrel 300 whisper with the welded on 5.5 inch flash hider. the so called xm-177 style. many ways to skin this cat!

    A forging is just that, a forging. It is not a receiver. So yes, provided you NEVER put a stock on it, you can put an 11.5" upper on it... or if you pay the NFA $200 stamp then you can make it an SBR. Both are legal.

    What is not legal is making it a rifle by putting a stock on it with an 11.5" upper without paying the $200 NFA tax.
