SBR Question

I have a Beretta Neos pistol, and the Carbine kit. I want to assemble the pistol barrel on the shoulder stocked action. I know it needs BATFE approval and the $200 Tax. Does this need Local Law Enforcement approval, on the forms, like a suppressor does? I dont want to start a trust, and my CLEO will sign my forms, but I dont know how a Form 1 is different from a Form 4. Also, does the receiver need any special engravings, or is the original receiver serial number sufficient?

I am not the ATF, but what it sounds like is the typical SBR AR15 proposition.

Form 1 requires local CLEO sign-off and engraving of the receiver. It's different than the Form 4 because you are registering a new NFA firearm (the resultant SBR), and not simply a transferee of one already made and registered by someone else.

Engraving is simply your name, city, and state. I've used Orion Arms in the past on my SBR's.

Sounds like a nice project and a fun little shooter.

If the receiver has to be engraved, I wonder how I would do this because I believe the receiver is polymer on the Neos. It has a metal plate that shows thru a "window" with the serial number... It might not be possible then...

Google "beretta neos sbr" - it's been done before, so it's possible. Looks pretty cool too.

Why don't you want to do a trust? It's easier, and generally cheaper than an individual transfer, and has other advantages...

You can laser engrave the plastic, it looks good and will work fine (and be legal). If you don't like that idea, you can engrave the barrel.

How would engraving the barrel be legal? The barrel is easily removable. I would think the receiver needs to be engraved, because it is the "firearm"

You thought wrong, Only the serial number needs be on the receiver. Other marking can be on the barrel.

Actually Yes, that is good to know. Maybe it is possible then. I sure would like to do it. It would be a fun little plinker.

Because if you read the law, it says you can engrave the barrel...spells it out real clear.
