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.

re: other people shooting your pistol

7-a. Possession and use, at an indoor or outdoor pistol range located in or on premises owned or occupied by a duly incorporated organization organized for conservation purposes or to foster proficiency in small arms or at a target pistol shooting competition under the auspices of or approved by the national rifle association for the purpose of loading and firing the same, by a person duly licensed to possess a pistol or revolver pursuant to section 400.00 or 400.01 of this chapter of a pistol or revolver duly so licensed to another person who is present at the time.
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".
