Do you know the OAL from the end of the barrel threads to the end of the buffer tube with that 11.5" barrel?

Using Vltor pistol extension and BA 11.5” barrel it’s 27” OAL from end tube to end barrel threads

Nice. Isn't it anything >26" OAL and you can add a vertical grip to a pistol?
Yes as far as I can read and tell it classifies as other firearm not under pistol guidelines but there again I’m not testing it lol

If I decide to go that route I'll just email the ATF and get them to send me the official ruling on that and print off my email with their response and the official ruling and fold it up and store it in my pistol grip.

The latest iteration of my SET AR. Unfortunately the Midwest Industries rail I ordered has a barrel nut that is about .040 too small at the shoulder to slide over my massively thick bull barrel....06A688F9-F927-41A1-9B66-4284BA03A52E.jpeg0D48A0C8-D857-46A7-B784-C363DBFCD46E.jpeg1A3D8339-41E5-453F-8F1B-73DA5A0F20ED.jpeg
