Where not prohibited by state law, we can convert your personal firearm to a SBR

Short-Barreled Rifle (SBR) - A shoulder-stocked rifle that fires
conventional fixed ammunition under .50 caliber (unless explicitly exempted by BATFE), and
having a barrel less than 16" (as measured from the face of a closed bolt to the end
of the permanent muzzle) or an overall length less than 26" with stock
extended. Also included are certain pistols that accept detachable shoulder
stocks. Antique guns, some guns listed on the Federal Curios & Relics list, and
any gun over 50 years of age, may be exempted from registration. Check with BATFE
Technical Branch to determine if a particular gun qualifies for the exemption. Full
automatic variants are not considered SBRs and are registered as machine guns. The
Federal Transfer tax on any SBR is $200.
We offer a variety of SBR configurations we call "THUNDER" carbines
(Tactical/Hunter/Urban/Naval Dangerous Environment Rifles):
Options and Accessories: Each THUNDER carbine is
customized to your taste. We have a wide range of accessories available for most

coat finish on exposed metal surfaces (see OPTIONS page for

sight, long eye relief (LER) scope mount, LER telescopic sight or illuminated optical
sight, peep iron sights, luminous night sights, collapsible or folding stock, pistol grip

a short barrel rifle (under 16") must be made through someone in your state who
