    I am considering building a 10/22 charger out of a 10/22 rifle receiver I have. Are there any legal steps I need to go through? The firearm will fit within all guide lines to be considered a pistol. I know an AR receiver can but purchased and turned into a Pistol if again firearm fits within all guide lines to be considered a pistol.

    I'm sure I know the answer but wanted to get some opinions.

    Thanks,

    Jason

    What type of firearm was it down as on the 4473?

    Q: Can this receiver b used to build a charger pistol?
    Asked by: Dave - 1/29/2016
    A: As of 2016, our receivers are shipped as receivers to your local FFL. So, if the receiver is logged in at the manufacturer (which is us) as a receiver then then the customer is allowed to designate if it is a rifle or pistol. But if it is designated as a rifle then formal paperwork must be filled out to modify it into a pistol. Good shooting! KIDD

    Once a rifle, always a rifle.
    A Ruger 10/22 rifle receiver can't be used to make a Charger type pistol.
    if you did that, the resulting firearm would be classified as an SBR --short-barreled rifle. You would need to have pre-filed the Form 1, paid the $200 tax, and gotten the ATF's special stamp.

    If however you bought a Charger pistol, you could temporarily add a full length barrel and a shoulder stock to it, making it a rifle or carbine temporarily.
    And then you would be free to return it to the pistol configuration.

    ATF has always disagreed that this was legal, but in 1979 they lost a Supreme Court case where the highest court in the land found their position to be ridiculous and not supported by the actual law passed by Congress.
