AR 15 SBR questions

I have a couple (or so) questions before I start my SBR paperwork for an AR15 build I am going to do--

1) Am I ok using a lower marked "Pistol for an SBR?
2) Am I ok once the approval from the ATF is back to me, to put any length upper on the build at any time? Ie change from a 7.5 to an 11.5 barrel on the same receiver?

I was told I could use the pistol receiver-- so if I can, I will probably build a pistol then SBR it if it is legal to do.
I also was told, I could not change uppers, but this doesn't make sense, as the firearm is the marked part-- ie receiver..

Any help or advice shot my way is greatly appreciated!

1. Yes, you can use any to make an SBR.
2. Once you get your gun engraved, and you get your canceled tax stamp back you can interchange barrel lengths at will.

The only thing you CAN'T do is make it back into a "pistol."

Does that mean--

A pistol can become a rifle (or SBR) depending on the OAL and BL, but once it is a rifle, it is always a rifle and must adhere to barrel and overall lengths?

ARRGH!?!?

Unless it's a SBR.
