Another Mech Tech legality question

1848 Views 8 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  13bravo
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.

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.
