    I'm intrigued by it. Love that there is a pistol using 10/22 mags (that is somewhat reasonably priced)

    Just the ability to use all my 10/22 mags on it makes me want it a little bit.

    Just stamp "CHARGER" on the side of your 10/22 and get a pistol stock for it ;)

    Nobody will know.

    That's cool that ruger is actually making them instead of people buying the cheetah. It's definatly a fun gun, and only has a few good uses, but hey. It's still a 10/22 pistol. Wouldn't this be a lot easier to make it SBR?

    What makes a rifle a rifle and a pistol a pistol? (according to the law)

    How it's transfered to you from your FFL. When they fill out the transfer form they either fill out rifle or pistol. Obviously anything with no shoulder stock and a barrel under 16'' will be a pistol and a rifle is a rifle.

    When transferring stripped receivers all you have to do is tell them it's for a pistol or a rifle.

    sort of. If it was EVER put down in anyone's record as a rifle, then it is ALWAYS a rifle, and can never be a pistol.

    Interesting.

    So could you somehow build a P90 as a pistol not a SBR so you don't need the goofy looking 16" barrel?

    I still think I'm going to get a pistol stock set for my TC. I don't think anyone will ever ask or care whether it was a rifle or pistol when I bought it.

    probably not, cause I doubt you'd be able to find a receiver that was built and registered as a pistol. I also doubt you'd be able to build your own to register it as a pistol. even if you did, since there is a dedicated front hand guard thats designed to be used when you shoot the rifle, it'd be an Any other weapon. It's a $5 NFA tax stamp and has to be registered as NFA, but it's cheaper than the SBR stamp.

    What you are able to do in some cases, is buy the pistol version of something, and then SBR it with a Form 4. Throw a stock on a pistol and it becomes an SBR. (i think)

    its a 5 dollar xfer, IIRC, it is still a 200 dollar tax when manufactured :o

    Don't think that would be possible cause the stock is part of the p90, and you can't have a stock on a pistol, plus as jeep mentioned the handguard.

    hmmm... didn't know that. If you're building your own SBR, is it just the 200 tax to manufacture on the Form 4, and that's it? or do you have to pay the $200 transfer fee as well?

    SBR/SBS/MG/Supressor/DD(I think on the DD, not sure), is 200 to manufacture and then 200 each xfer. AOW is 200 to make, and then 5 to xfer.

    honestly though, I don't even know exactly what is covered under AOW.

    :hs: Thanks for the reply.

    These laws are dumb. Wasn't most of this stuff written to mess with gangsters in the 30's?

    I had a feeling that was going to happen.

    So you can make a P90 a SBR legally with the tax stamp / registration?

    The Charger was just released very recently. I have been unable to locate any kind of pricing. I found nothing on Ruger's site, and it is too early for this to be on the auction sites. Any idea of the price?
