    Toying with the idea of converting my Saiga 12. After conversion I'll look into shortening the barrel some. What is the legal limit on the barrel on a shotgun before going into SBS status. I've got no intentions of dealing with the ATF yet so I want to know if and how much I can get chopped if any.

    Q: What is the registered part of a Short Barreled Rifle (SBR) or Short Barreled Shotgun (SBS)?

    While a receiver alone may be classified as a “firearm” under the Gun Control Act (GCA), SBRs and SBSs are classified in totality under the National Firearms Act (NFA). A firearm that meets the definition of a SBR consists of a rifle that has a barrel less than 16 inches in length. A SBS consists of a shotgun that has a barrel less than 18 inches in length. The serialized receiver is recorded for registration in the National Firearms Registration and Transfer Record (NFRTR).
