I may have other HBAR rifles and would want to run the binary trigger and the same suppressor on the rifle upper with NO intention of switching the buffer tube to accommodate a stock. Likewise if the barrel was not HBAR then the rifle/ pistol definition comes to question in the absence of a stock. Maybe best recourse is to avoid mating a 5.56 16" upper to the said lower to avoid any gray areas.

Not meaning to thread jack but if I have a AR9 pistol with a Franklin binary trigger mated to a upper with a 10.5" barrel, would there be an issue if I switched the upper and attached a 16" 9mm barrel?

There would be no Md based issue about HBAR .

But the unspoken part so far is pistol > rifle > pistol is totally OK .

OAL greater than 26" and vertical fore grip is good to go. The law is the law and people LOVE to live in fear. It is LEGAL to shoulder a AR-pistol brace. End of story on that, unless we want to perpetuate fear, then have at it

So in MD no issue about my using a 16" HBAR upper to my AR pistol lower (sig brace). Thank goodness.

As for my AR9 pistol can I do the same (ie swap the 10.5 inch upper for a 16" upper)? I'm not sure if all 9mm uppers are HBAR or if the HBAR ruling applies to 9mm ARs. I'm asking because it is easier to explain to the wife that having an upper as "a part of the AR pistol setup" compared to explaining why I bought an AR9 rifle after assembling a pistol.

The HBAR requirement only applies to 5.56. Per MDSP

Thank you for the quick reply.

I nearly bought the AR9 rifle lower from Jlowes. If my wife was not with me it would have been a done deal. But she was with me when I picked up the $499 Windham AR (she had no clue that I bought a rifle)... so it was pretty hard to justify why I wanted to get a 9mm rifle lower at that time.
