    My ignorance of NFA

    Springfield has a rifle in 300blackout with a 9" barrel.
    I always thought any rifles/shotguns had to have a min 18" barrel.
    Could someone please explain??

    I'm guessing it's a pistol and not a rifle.

    They call it a pistol but it has a stock.

    It probably has an arm brace that is meant to go over the forearm.

    But yes, they do look like a shoulder stock.

    Got a link? I'd bet it's not a stock. It's an "arm brace." Technically not a stock.

    I'm surprised they haven't gone after it like they did the bump stock. It's only a matter of time when one is used in a crime, and then they'll ban them, too.

    Nobody probably even notices, since they don't alter the rate of fire.

    But on the same note, I always wondered why someoe that uses a "sawed off shotgun" in the commission of a crime doesn't also face charges under the NFA.

    They'll claim it makes a pistol into a SBR, and it's more "concealable." It's another "loophole!" It's a matter of time. Watch.

    The bump stock does not alter the rate of fire, by the way.

    You question has been answered, but just to add....

    Minimum rifle barrel is 16 inches
    Minimum shotgun barrel is 18 inches

    There was a change from the original NFA34 but those are the current minimum lengths.
    There are only 3 colors, 10 digits, and 7 notes; it's how we arrange them that is important.
