Maybe if it was a .410 with a rifled bore, then it might need a VFG to be an AOW.
Alright now I'm more confused than before I read all 25 pages.
I guess what I'm trying to say is if its okay to AOW your cruiser to chop the barrel under 16" and it is not considered a pistol/handgun/concealable firearm, why not an AK?
