    I have an approved ATF form 1 for a SBR (6.8SPC) with a 8" barrel, I've had it for a couple of years. I would like to get a 5.56 /.223 complete upper to put onto the reg. lower. Is this possible ? Most indoor ranges allow the 5.56 / .223 and the 6.8SPC can only be fired outdoors.

    What steps do I need to follow before I am allowed to do this. Also, the upper that I am looking at is described as 7.5". Would I need to keep it at 8" as the form 1 describes it as. Thank you for any information that you can provide to me.

    You can send a Form 4 amendment to the ATF if the configuration of the SBR changes

    Thank you for the info. Even though the SBR is on a Form 1, I would use a Form 4 Amendment ? Do I wait before it is sent or can I order an 5.56 upper now ? Also, I was not able to locate a Form 4 amendment, is this a real Form or just a self typed amendment sent to the ATF on what I am planning to do ? Thank you for any help in this matter as I want to make sure I am keeping everything legal.

    Sorry, I meant Form 1. You can just send a letter to the ATF.

    Thanks,, Last question, can I buy the upper now or do I have to wait until the ATF sends me a reply that they have my letter about the change ?

    It's always safest to have the ATF documentation beforehand.
