Hey guys I think I know the answer to this but I want confirmation. If I have a non pistol lower can I make it into a .22lr pistol? I am 99% sure its a no but I want to know for sure. Thanks guys

a stripped lower would be DROSed as a "long gun" and it is unknown if that "long gun" designation would taint that receiver so that it could only be built up as a rifle or shotgun. If it was tainted, then by building it up as a pistol, you'd have created a short-barreled rifle, a felony.

Please listen to ke6guj - you're talking about real criminal risk from a number of angles.
