Lately we have been having lots of discussion on Short Barreled Rifles, more commonly known as SBR's. Most states allow ownership of them, all one has to do is get an ATF approved tax stamp. The SBR is defined as any rifle having a barrel of less than 16 inches. Some of the M-4 clones have 14.5" barrels but to make them legal, they have a pinned or welded flash suppressor on them that makes them the legal length.
I've received several callls about them in the last few days, I'm beginning to think that it may be the latest fad in the world of AR's. They are becoming popular with the Police, as they are easier to get in and out of a patrol car without hanging up, they are much better for room clearing due to the decreased length and although the ballistics of the .223 are diminished with the shortys, that shortcoming can be overlooked simply by shooting the bad guys more than once.
So, lets see what you have. I know there are a few of us here that have them and build them and I have to admit they are pretty tough looking. AR's, AK's or anything else less than the "legal limit" is welcome here.
I'll start it off with just a few of the builds I have done.
