    300 Blackout SBR for under $500?

    Just throwing this out there...

    Complete lower with Magpul CTR stock.

    Plus complete 8.5" barrel upper with BCG
    http://palmettostatearmory.com/psa-8...516446485.html

    $440 for the complete gun, less magazines. Add $200 for a form 1 and still under $700 for an SBR.

    Brainstorming out loud....

    Just buy an "arm stabilizing brace" and save the hassle, the wait, the BS, and $200 dollars.

    True. Does save the hassle, for sure. But, really only saves $50-$100 after you factor in the cost of the brace. For those who would like a real adjustable stock, the extra $50-$100 might be worth it.... The hassel and waiting time, maybe not.

    Besides, for $640 including the stamp, not a bad deal for a "real" SBR.

    put a $2 cane tip on the end of the buffer tube and be done with it.

    Plus, with an SBR you have to ask Mommy may I to cross state lines.

    Just make sure you have a pistol lower around until you get your stamp.

    Supposedly they can get you with "Intent to build" if you have a <16" barrelled upper, and no pistol or registered lower to put it on (but have rifle lowers)

    Right. I happen to have a lower receiver in the safe right now for that purpose. I personally am probably not going to do it right now anyway, but the idea of it I find interesting, in any case.

    THAT, is one of the big drawbacks where I am, right on the Texas/New Mexico state line. You can cross the state line several times in a 10 minute trip. It really wouldn't be an issue for me personally, but I can see how it could for some people.

    As far as the "arm brace" or "just stick something on it" thing, that's all well and good if that's what someone wants to do. But I know ya'll realize, it's still just an AR pistol. Sticking something on it doesn't make it an SBR. Of course going that route saves a lot of time and hassle and some expense. But there are those who might want to have a LEGAL SBR with a real, collapsible stock and LEGALLLY be able to shoulder and fire their gun comfortably.

    I'm still not exactly sure how having the upper with no lower to put it on can be labeled as "intent to build," but adding junk to a buffer tube doesn't constitute intent...

    IOW - We know that there are LOTS of lurkers on this forum at any given time. Careful what we allude to....

    Shouldering a pistol isn't verboten.

    Right. I was talking about comfortability when shouldering using whatever is on the gun for the purpose of shouldering it. If I want an adjustable stock, comfort options, more to choose from, the only legal way is SBR. Not the legality of shouldering a pistol. All that basically to clarify, we’re talking about 2 different things. Going off on the AR pistol tangent in an SBR thread. I get the point. Just to be clear, they are two different things. Regardless of the purpose of the “arm brace” stuff and what they are used for.

    I like that lower. Need it for one of these uppers. Got to find that money tree.
