That is an interesting question. I think I see where you are attempting to go with it. If you have a registered AOW and then register it as an SBS, does the AOW registration go bye-bye. Because, if its still a registered AOW, then it is exempt from 12020, even if the configuration changed. Let me do a litte checking on that and see if I can find out anything.

No, an SBS does not needto keep a shoulder stock attached, because a federally defined SBS is a short barrel firearm made from a shotgun (a shoulder fired shotshell firearm). Even though you later take off the stock, it was made from a shotgun, so federally it is still a shotgun and an SBS.

Do you want an AOW or C&R SBS/SBR in CA?
