That is a sbr,

In cali that COULD be legal if, and only if,

The barell is 16 inches or more,

It meets the OAL requirement

It has a mag lock,

once you do all that you are G2G,

but the moment that you make that into a rifle in can NEVER EVER become a pistol after that!

Why :confused: A 9mm AR isn't good enough? If you want glock mags Olypmic Arms makes several pistol caliber ARs that use glock mags.

Actually, it appears to be a federal interpretation by the BATFE that from the moment the part that is the registered firearm (the lower receiver in Glocks) has been configured as a rifle, any reconfiguration that combines that receiver with a sub-16" barrel (including the original barrel) will then create a short barreled rifle.

Even worse, SBR's qualify for constructive possession, which means that continuing to possess the original slide and barrel along with the carbine-converted receiver is sufficient to create an SBR. If you owned a second unconverted pistol receiver that could accept the slide and barrel, you'd be okay since the second set could be claimed to now be spares for the "still a pistol" receiver.

These carbine conversion kits are technically an excellent idea, but legally are in a large gray zone. My personal interpretation: admire someone else's.

And people keep saying California has stupid gun laws. That just proves it that the whole nation have stupid gun laws.

Damn I forgot about that, but It was one in the morining lol,

Well say you had 2 G-21 one with the carbine kit and one standard it wouldnt me constuctive possesion since you have the means to use the "extra slide" atleast I think im thinking that right lol

The Barrel is 16.25" and looking at the dimensions it appears to be over 30". The only thing I believe it needs to be legal is a mag lock. Am I mistaken?

The MGI MARCK-15 has the capability to do what you want.
They have a .45ACP Glock mag well, which will take the 10x25mm Glock magazines.
Their quick change upper can accept 10x25mm barrels.
Add a 10mm bolt/bolt carrier.
And you'll have an 10mm AR that take Glock 20/29 magazines.
However, it'll cost you lots of $$$$ to get it set-up.

Nope, you're correct. maglock it with a committed "lower" and you're fine with 10 round mags.
