>Length of the barrel does not matter, under 26''OAL, no stock = pistol , shoulder stock any barrel length = rifle<

 

Rifle barrel has to be 16" or longer.

 

Really. It does. Look it up.

 

You put a shoulder stock on a pistol with a barrel shorter than 16" and you have committed a federal felony good for ten years in Club Fed and a quarter-million dollar fine.

 

But if it makes you happy, go ahead and put a stock on your 4 3/4" SAA. It's your life.

You are absolutely correct, if you have a barrel less than 16'' and a shoulder stock it is a short barrel rifle, no NFA paper work , big trouble. You also seem to be missing my point, you can change a pistol to a rifle ( add stock and barrel over 16") and than change it back. Lets use an AR15 pistol as an example. If it was originally built as a pistol, pistol buffer and barrel shorter than 16", you can put a 16" upper on it than change out the pistol buffer for a shoulder stock and make it a rifle. If it came from the factory as a rifle you can not turn it into a pistol.
