View Full Version : Homemade Barrel Extension

I'm thinking of buying the pistol version of the Kriss Super V from a friend who lives out of state (through FFL dealer of course) for a really great deal. However, I want to attach a stock to it--so I'd of course need to extend the barrel to make the 30" minimum length. So my question is: would a homemade barrel extension/shroud (like one of those fake suppressors) over the stock barrel be legal? Also, would it need to be welded on or would a screw on version with locktight suffice?

Yes, it'd need to be welded.

Is it registered as a pistol? I'm no sure but I thought there was some rule about going from a pistol to rifle being a no-no. I might have it backwards.

You have it backwards.

Thank you!


OP, they are really neat guns! Enjoy!

Why not keep it as pistol? Only need to convert to single shot before it can transfer to you.

Stock barrel is 5.5", so need to bring minimum barrel length 6.5" and OAL 10.5".

Install KRISS Raddlock and single shot sled, then blind pin a compensator to barrel. (I converted a 1.5" Battle Comp on mine KRISS Pistol)

PM me if you need some help with this.

BTW: I would not recommend you fabricate a 10.5 tube to add into this pistol unless you have plenty of clearance for the bullet once it leave the barrel. .45 is a slow round, if you flinch or limp wrist a bit after pulling the trigger, then you run the risk of the bullet hitting the extension tube on the way out. Factory KRISS carbines comes with 16" rifled barrel with fake suppressor shroud over it. Also on KRISS Pistol the sling butt where usually a stock sits is blind pinned to prevent tampering. So you would probably better off just getting a KRISS carbine instead vs trying to convert this one to a rifle.

If you're going to go with a rifle, I'd suggest getting the factory carbine with the 16" barrel. May not be as good of a deal, but the longer barrel will serve you much better than a 5.5" barrel and 10.5" shroud.
