    Question AR-15 shorty question.

    O.K. finally got my shorty. ProjectGuns held my hand through the whole process and I finally got down to South Florida to pick the weapon up.
    They went over the rules and regulations of owning a NFA weapon.
    I have to keep a copy of the tax stamp with me at all times when leaving the house with the weapon.
    If I travel too another state with the weapon, I have too fill out a form to "legally" bring the weapon into another state.
    Question? After 3 days I finally figured out how too take the upper off.
    O.K. so I am stupid o.k. Shut up Sniper
    Now. I see complete uppers for sale. Can I buy another complete "full size" upper and put it on this one to do some shooting. Without getting strung and quartered. Or thrown in a cell with Bubba.
    Are the complete uppers headspaced?

    4th, on an SBR, the upper (<16" Barrel) is the part of the gun that is stamped! Put any 16" upper on it and blast away!
    Can't believe your getting into black rifles though! I have several myself along with about a dozen AK's in various formats.
    Enjoy! .223 is expensive, hell, all of it is expensive these days.
    I hope the price of beer doesn't go up any time soon!

    Thumbs up Thanks Guys...

    Yes. Been 40 something years since I touched one of these rifles.
    So it is legal. Good to know.
    Always wanted one. Just never got around to buying.
    I will give a range report in the AR-15 section.
    Tiny little bullets they are kinda weird holding one after all these years.

    But there are armor piercing ones that can stop a tank

    I don't care who you are, that's funny.

    Talking Yeah rite...

    So were deep in the land of oz south east Asia.
    The Sarge comes up and says, "Come on Tim were going deer hunting."
    "Deer hunting. Uh Sarge were like in Injun country. What you mean deer hunting?"
    "Follow me." O Tay.
    Crawl too the perimeter and there stands this giant Asian deer. All of 60 pounds soaking wet.
    Wham. Square in the shoulder he hits the poor thing.
    Damn deer hits the ground, gets up, looks at the Sarge like "Thats all you got, off he goes frolicking to the bush."..
    Oh yeah. Little tiny bullets they are.

    it is the lower that is the nfa item, not the upper.

    4th, you can put any upper on it but the lower is still an nfa item, keep the copy of the form in the bag with the gun. if you want another upper consider one in 5.45 x 39, ammo is cheap and plentifull. we can also chop a 16" one for you so you will have a set of short bbls for the lower in different calibers.

    the shorty ar's draw a lot of attention at the range, I have goe shooting and had $15, K of exotic guns sitting on the bench and the only one that draws comments is my ar sbr.

    Great idea. Thank you. I will give you a call later and talk about this.
    I am actually starting to like these little B.B. guns.
    Coils says they can stop a tank.
    Coils and Sniper are always teasing me, so I aint sure if there kidding or not.
    So if a Russian T-35 tank is coming at me at say like 60 m.p.h.
    Can I get out of my foxhole and stop it with one round of armor piercing with this shorty?
    Plus I need to know if that is legal or not? I will keep my tax stamp with me in case the commies catch me.
