Does attaching this to a Glock pistol make it a SBR requiring registration? Just trying to clear up possible FUD or not.

Yup, SBR with that attached. And even just possessing it along with Glock pistol can be considered constructive possession of an SBR.

even if you also posses a 16 inch barrel?

remember, if you configured it that way you would NEVER be able to make it back into a pistol. You would also have to lock the mag.

OK, if you also have a 16" glock barrel, constructive possession goes away since you ahve a legal use for it. But, remember that you would have to comply with Rifle AW regs as well.

Rifle = Fired from shoulder / Short = less than 16" barrel

I thought CA didnt have constructive possession. I can own a 7.5" upper without owning a pistol lower, right?

WRONG!!!

does not matter if CA does not have constructive possesion, you will be anwsering at FEDERAL level. NFA rules apply. pls. do a search on this before you put yourself in trouble.

CA has constructive possession law for SBR.

Penal Code 12020
(c)(2) As used in this section, a "short-barreled rifle" means any of the following:
(A) A rifle having a barrel or barrels of less than 16 inches in length.
(B) A rifle with an overall length of less than 26 inches.
(C) Any weapon made from a rifle (whether by alteration, modification, or otherwise) if that weapon, as modified, has an overall length of less than 26 inches or a barrel or barrels of less than 16 inches in length.
(D) Any device which may be readily restored to fire a fixed cartridge which, when so restored, is a device defined in subparagraphs (A) to (C), inclusive.
(E) Any part, or combination of parts, designed and intended to convert a device into a device defined in subparagraphs (A) to (C), inclusive, or any combination of parts from which a device defined in subparagraphs (A) to (C), inclusive, may be readily assembled if those parts are in the possession or under the control of the same person.

Yup, Fed and State constructive possession applies for SBR.

But no constructive possession for CA AWs.

So Glock, plus 16" bbl, plus stock, but not assembled = legal (well, it would still be a CA SBR if the gun is under 26", and might be a Fed SBR because the stock is readily detachable and the "rifle" could be fired w/o the stock attached. This is why the Uzis with QD stocks need 19" barrels to still reach 26" w/o the stock) You might need a 20"+ barrel to make it legal on all fronts.

Be careful w/ NFA

Know the laws before mucking with stocks for pistols.
