My googlefu is on vacation.

A gentleman came in to the shop today. He said to "check my PC"

Basically he was trying to explain that AR pistols can be turned into rifles and then back to rifles.

Uhhhhhh? Can anyone clear this up? AFAIK rifles cannot be pistols without paperwork...

Sure they can. But, not legally! "Once a rifle, always a rifle" is pretty much federal law. The noted exception of this is TC contenders which cam in a special kit.

Yep, turning a rifle into a pistol will create an unregistered SBR.

That's what I thought! Can't believe he told me to check my PC... I know PC enough... that's some basic stuff!
