    I have an SBR question.

    Currently I own four AR15’s in different calibers and barrel lengths (16“-20“).

    If I were to purchase a Multi Caliber AR15 lower receiver and then properly register it as a SBR lower, would I be legally allowed to own different caliber SBR uppers at the same time?

    I am guessing the answer would be no but since I did not see anybody ask about legally registering a Multi Caliber SBR lower, I thought I would ask.

    Thank you for your help.

    Your Form 4 has to represent the actual configuration(s) of the SBR. Multi is not a configuration. You can always amend a Form 4 if you change the configurations the SBR will be in.

    However, note that you cannot possess extra SBR uppers (other than the one for the SBR lower) IF you have any non-SBR rifle AR-15 lowers in your possession.

    Thank you for the reply,

    I was kind of guessing that if I wanted multipal caliber SBR uppers, I would need to have a registered SBR lower for each SBR uppers.

    I was just hoping I was wrong.:crying:

    One more quick question.

    If I have a SBR lower and upper, can I legally own as many legal length uppers (16" and above) for the SBR that I want in the same caliber or would that go against the description of the SBR on the original form.

    Thank you for your help.

    I am thinking I might just do a SBR on my RRA 9mm since I really no longer use it since I bought my dedicated .22lr upper for my other AR rifle.

    Maybe a Noise Suppressor after the SBR but, first I will have to find out if I can get one that I can use with the AR15/9mm and a Glock 19. I want the most silence for my buck.:supergrin:
