I've been doing a bit of research on this myself.

My understanding is if you have a lower that started out as a rifle you cannot make it a pistol. However, a lower that starts out as a pistol can be converted to a rifle.

Of course if you buy a lower and build your own stuff no one is the wiser but a purchased rifle taken apart and the lower used as a pistol is a no go.

Am I wrong here?

A lower that starts serviceable life as a rifle will always be a rifle. To go shorter than 16", you must go SBR.

A lower that starts serviceable life as a pistol will always be a pistol, so you can convert it from pistol to rifle and back to pistol at will.
