    I’ve seen mentioned in several places that you can have a VFG with a brace if the OAL of the weapon is greater than 26” because the BATF does not consider it a rifle or a pistol.

    I thought an SBR was based on the length of the barrel?

    Thanks!

    Unless it's already registered as a SBR, a short barrel firearm with a pistol brace is not an SBR, it is a pistol. When you put a VFG on a pistol, it no longer meets the classification of a pistol, and becomes an AOW, which is illegal unless registered. BUT, if the OAL is greater than 26" and you put on a VFG, it no longer meets the classification of a pistol/rifle/AOW/SBR, making it only a firearm that is legal.

    The measurement is from the muzzle of the barrel, or permanently affixed muzzle device, to the end of the stock/brace at it's fullest extension. I thought it was to the end of the buffer tube if you have a pistol brace, but lately this has become very confusing with adjustable length pistol braces, and could very well be to the end of the pistol brace at it's fullest extension.

    Thank you for the detailed explanation! I feel a little more intelligent.
