Question about SBRs

A friend of mine (no it is not me) Just bought a Bushmaster Carbon 15 "pistol" and he wants to put a collapsable stock on it where the buffer cover is now. Would that make the pistol and rifle and subject to BATFE SBR restrictions? Just curious.

Don't put a vertical forward grip on it either.

He could also simply fill out the necessary paperwork, obtain CLEO signoff, send in the $200.00 and register it as an SBR.

Only if your state allows SBRs

Some states don't allow SBR's after a certain date.

Washington for one after 1994.

Or set up a trust and avoid the finger prints, mug shot, and CLEO signoff.
