SHORT BARREL RIFLES (SBR) and TACTICAL CARBINES

NOTE: Please contact us for price quotes on new guns (Federal Transfer Tax or any applicable state sales tax is extra).   Where not prohibited by state law, we can convert your personal firearm to a SBR and return it directly to you after the Form 4 is approved.

 

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 a price quote.
