    If you get an SBR, what part is actually registered and needs to have the info etched on it?

    I'm just wondering if I got an AR-15 Registered as an SBR and got more than one barrel for it... Would I have to pay for each one?

    Also, if I buy a silencer, is it just registered to one gun or can I get one and switch between two rifles (assuming they're the same caliber)?

    When you SBR a gun, the receiver (lower, in the AR15's case) is the registered and marked part, you can have as many barrels for your lower as you want.

    Likewise, the silencer is the registered part and you can use it on as many different guns as you can make it work on.

    There are dumbasses that register the UPPER reciever on AR's, and they're stuck with only one possible configuration, rather than having more than one SBR upper at a time, or being able to switch things around like if the lower were registered as the SBR.

    Thanks. I got some other stuff I want to do (CCW, Target AR for across the course matches) but maybe I'll start looking into getting SBR for a fun gun to plink around with.

    Now I got to start looking at local laws to see what's required.

    When you submit your form 4, you write it up for all the calibers and lengths you think you might use.

    If you put 11.5", .223, then it doesn't matter if you registered your lower, you're only supposed to use 11.5"/.223 uppers with it.

    If you put down 11.5,10.5,14.5 and 9mm,.223,7.62x39,.45,.40 then you can use all those combinations.

    There have been people who've put <16" and Multi for the caliber, but now others are saying their Form4s are being kicked back because of it. Just make the list.

    I'd be a smartass, and attach a separate page that was nothing but a list of every possible caliber EVER used that might fit through the magwell of that reciever. Anything from .17 up to .50.

    Items are not Class III. Federal Firearms Licenses are Class III, which allows a dealer to sell Title II firearms and items.

    Title 2 firearms or NFA items. But they are commonly called class 3 items.
