I asked a while back about a mech tech upper for a 1911 pistol frame, but I do have one other question, when I get my pistol permit and finally buy a 1911, can only another pistol permit holder shoot the carbine?

Since the frame is a pistol I'm assuming that only others with a pistol permit can handle and shoot it when it is in the carbine configuration.

I ended up getting the mech tech upper at you may as well say a steal. I bought it an an auction for $25 just because nobody knew what it was, and nobody was willing to bid on it because of that.

re: other people shooting your pistol

7-a.

Isn't it illegal to convert a pistol into a rifle?

I believe that's only if the barrel is not lengthened properly to be considered a rifle, like with that Sig Sauer moduler pistol thing. It was declared that it'd make the pistol an SBR.

Making the pistol into the carbine may be legal because the length is OK but what about going back to the pistol. You have just created a "weapon made from a rifle".

Basically the same thing the link I posted from the ATF website says. So it's OK on the federal level. What about the state level? I don't recall a law prohibiting it in the NYS penal code.

Yeah that is the only thing that really makes me a bit leery of doing this, but I might just get one of Sarco's frame kits and leave it as a carbine.
It would only be a hopefully nice little plinker. Like I said I lucked into this at a decent price that I just couldn't refuse.

Right now I'm just starting my waiting period for my pistol permit so hopefully not too extremely far down the road I can actually get a pistol.
