    As someone who’s not fully up on the intricacies of the NFA (Thanks to living in California where we don’t really get NFA goodies), if one decided they wanted to manufacture an SBR using one of these chassis systems and a Glock, would you be required to mark the Glock, or could you put your markings on the chassis instead?

    Because that would be really cool.

    • JSmath

      The marking belongs on the “firearm”, ie the receiver (the pistol, not the stock/chassis that attaches to it).

      Marking the chassis goes against the intent of the NFA writing, since you’d be able to shove whatever pistol you wanted into it, and that’d be too simple for the fear-mongerers and concerned mothers. Would it make sense for legal ownership and use of the chassis? Well, ya but we don’t do that with silly ass bans and their terminology.

      Still waiting for the ATF to approve and give me my stamp for the SBR I filed for this time last year. *sigh*

    • Cymond

      Ya gotta mark the receiver, or the barrel, and it must be visible without disassembly.

  • thedonn007

    I kind of want one with a sig brace, or similar device.

  • iksnilol

    They need to make one for the Mac style pistols. Then call it MACaRoni.

    I placed a order for 3 than received a email from them that they would not ship to Massachusetts.. So just a heads up to anyone else living in a NOT FREE state

      You’re neighbor south… the socalled ‘CONSTITUTION STATE’ …. is equally farcical. CT Gov. Malloy must be repudiated, rejected, removed. It is hope those bogus, oppressive, infringing no-laws will be done away with and soon.

  • Cymond

    OK, that MSRP makes this VERY interesting. The KPOS is like $600 or something.
    I need to figure out if it’s suppressor compatible. It doesn’t look like there’s room.
