    Class III SBR Hi-Power question?

    I've been looking at picking up a Hi-Power and have been checking for ones that I can get using my C&R license.

    I've seen some Inglis listed on GunBroker and other sites with the tangent sights and shoulder stock.

    Isn't a High-Power with a shoulder stock a SBR?

    Would you have to get a Class III to manufacter a SBR to add the shoulder stock?

    Can you have a slotted Hi-Power and shoulder stock and not attach them until you get a SBR license?

    No. You can have the slotted HP, with no stock, or you can have the stock with no slotted HP. It gets a little funky, particularly for those owning "weapon systems", like HK. Basically, if you have the parts to effect conversion to a license-required weapon "in your control"- generally taken to mean on or in property you own/rent/lease- you may be found in violation. Not an area where you want to try to plead "innocent mistake". At the very least, you'll forfeit the "offending parts", the HP, the stock, whatever else.

    Edit to add: if you find a kit with the 16" barrel ,and stock, you are then in possession of a legal "carbine-conversion kit", and you may apply for an SBR to put the factory 4.5" barrel in, in conjunction with the stock.

    I've never heard of a Hi-Power with a 16" barrel.

    Actually, neither have I ! But I do know that is a "mechanism of access" with Glock 17 and the 1911.

    So I can aquire the pistol obtain a license to manufacture and the get a shoulder stock?

    Is the a C&R exemption? I know they have some but couldn't find one on ATF's website.
