    I'm considering buying a traditional double-barrel shotgun, one that breaks down for loading and ejecting, and then cutting down the barrel to somewhere around 12 => 14 inches, and also modifying the stock - making it shorter, too, so the stock would end up being similar to a pistol grip.

    As far as the ATF is concerned, this would be classified as a Short Barrel Shotgun, correct?

    The correct form to fill out and submit before modifying the gun is ATF Form 1 (5320.1), correct?

    Once I get the approved form back from ATF, I can modify the gun, or have it modified by the appropriately licenses gunsmith, correct?

    Anything I'm missing here?

    Thanks!

    Why won't they approve it? DO I need to do something differently? If so, what ??

    Per the link I posted, if there is no stock it is an AOW and the Form 1 tax is $200.
