correct. I should have been more clear. I believe he is confusing the SBR law with the old(?) pistol law of 22 caliber or larger..
Interesting on the 1919A4 semi. Not really sure I'd want a shorty barrel on one, but still interesting.
Does anyone know if SBRs and SBSs are legal in MI? I went to an NFA gun trust website and this is what I saw:
Michigan has several laws dealing with the registration, ownership, and possession of firearms that are changing in January 2009. In Michigan you can own the following items that are regulated the the National Firearms Act
Machine GunsIn Michigan you cannot own the following NFA restricted items.
Any Other Weapon (AOW)
Destructive Devices (DD)
Short Barreled Shotguns (SBS) *
Short Barreled Rifles (SBR) *
and some AOW's like Tasers or Stun Guns by private citizens whether or not they are class 3 items or the individual has a CCW permit*SBR & SBS are restricted by the Michigan Compiled laws 750.224b(3) which limits these items to C&R, Collectors items not likely to be used as a weapon but only if the person selling, offering, or possessing the firearm also complies with the Michigan Compiled laws 28.422 (will be amended Jan 2009) and 28.429 ( will be repealed Jan 2009).I'm not sure if these laws are still in effect, but if they are, it looks like the only SBRs and SBSs we can have in MI have to be C&R eligible.
