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
rifles including the following features: tactical matte black or grey all-weather powder
coat finish on exposed metal surfaces (see OPTIONS page for
colors, patterns, and pricing), standard scope base with rings, self-ranging telescopic
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
stock, synthetic stock, tactical sling, compact 5-round hunting magazine, lightweight
folding bipod or monopod, flashlight adapter, bayonet lug, barrel porting/integral muzzle
brake, muzzle brake/ghost front sight, threaded barrel, fixed or removable flash hider or
muzzle brake, grenade launcher, heavy match barrel, barrel fluting, barrel shortening, and
integral or detachable sound suppressor. Of these features, only the barrel shortening
(under 16") and sound suppressor installation require payment of the Federal transfer
tax of $200. Unless you are sending us your personal rifle for conversion, the transfer of
a short barrel rifle (under 16") must be made through someone in your state who
possesses a valid FFL. Let us know what features you desire and we will provide you
