A pistol brace does not make a gun into a short-barreled rifle (SBR). The brace is simply an accessory that allows you to hold the gun against your shoulder for greater stability. However, if you use the pistol brace to “build” an SBR, then you violate the law. To make a gun into an SBR, it must have a barrel less than 16 inches long.
No. A pistol brace does not make a gun a short barrel rifle (SBR). The BATFE has ruled that a pistol brace is not a stock and thus does not convert a pistol into an SBR. However, using a pistol brace to ” increase the length of pull ” of a long gun to make it easier to shoot could be considered by some as constituting the use of the device as a stock, which would then convert the long gun into an SBR. Whether or not any particular usage of a pistol brace would be considered to constitute its use as stock is something that would need to be determined on a case-by-case basis.
No, a pistol brace does not make a gun into an SBR. An SBR is a rifle with a barrel length of fewer than 16 inches or an overall length of fewer than 26 inches. A pistol brace is simply a device that attaches to the buffer tube of an AR-style pistol to help shooters stabilize the weapon while firing.
No, a pistol brace does not make a gun a short-barreled rifle (SBR). A pistol brace is simply a device that is designed to help shooters grip their pistols more securely. While it is true that the use of a pistol brace may allow someone to shoulder their pistol and fire it more accurately, this does not mean that the gun has now magically become an SBR. To convert a pistol into an SBR, you would need to make modifications to the weapon (such as shortening the barrel) that would then bring it into compliance with federal regulations governing SBRs.
