    NOPE this is go see bubba land


    If the gun never had a butstock and was over 26inch OAL then it would be a other and legal

    This way unless barrel is 18inch you are going to get it

    I think the shockwave shotgun gets by having a 14 inch barrel as it is 26inch OAL ..

    But even then pretty tricky legal arrea
    I have no desire for that gun. I just looked like something that might get one in trouble. Combine the picture with the shaky write up, and it screams "Run Forrest Run!"

    Looks like I am wrong

    Non-NFA Shotgun?!? (Shockwave Technologies 14" bbl) [Archive] - Calguns.net

    see here

    AR hangun are the same ... If they were handgun never rifles and have no butstock you can fit a VFG to them


    Last I looked the rules were you can go to rifle etc from handgun but never back ... Some execption on a gun by gun basese but as a general rule alwasy a rifle or shotgun ...

    No butstock is a dif story though

    Other guns are very very weird legal speaking

    My general rule with stuff like OTHER guns or brace etc is I want to see a letter from the Fed saying this as is is legal .... Some states cops see something like a shockwave shotgun you better be able to answer real fast this is legal

    if it has a rifled barrel, its a pistol.
    caliber on the ad says .45 acp?
    similar to a mares leg i suspect, minus the lever action

    The title bar of that ad says "12 gauge". In the body of the ad, it says ".45 acp".

    The thing looks like a shotgun to me, but who knows from that add? And its supposed to be a Browning???
