When is an SBR not an SBR?

When the ATF says so!

An announcement from Franklin Armory.

Trying to decide if this is fake or how they did it.

An sbr
Designed to be fired from shoulder
1. Less than 16"
Or
2. Less than 26" overall

Okay. My prediction.
1. They took a mission first tactical stock that weighs 6 oz and convince the ATF that it's a stabilizing blade by putting a strap around it

2. 1 rd per Trigger pull = rifle. This fires once when pulled and once when released. Therefore doesn't meet definition of rifle

Could they play off this definition to move it Into firearm catagory?

The question is does it shoot traditional ammo?

Barrel pinned and welded to the receiver..making the receiver essentially part of the barrel creating 16".....maybe? 40% Confused 60% Excited, trying not to get my hopes up about this. If it is true, it would be awesome if it is priced reasonably.

That is a real head scratcher. Can't possibly see how the gun in the picture doesn't require a stamp. I'm guessing some fine print like...

*when sold with suppressor/flash hider permanently attached or when sold with brace instead of stock.

I thought barrel length is measured from terminal crown of the barrel to the bolt face, in battery.

It is. That is what the ATF has on its website as to how a barrel's length is measured.
