I don't know what models you are talking about and I'm not going to look them up.

If you put a barrel shorter than 16" on a rifle lower (has a shoulder stock) you have made a Short Barreled Rifle (SBR) If you don't have NFA paperwork for this, you have committed a felony.

Sounds like you'd be creating an SBR. Not sure of exactly what guns you are talking about though.

I remember seeing somewhere that you could swap the lower receiver of an original Bushmaster (Gwinn) rifle with the lower receiver of a Gwinn Arm Pistol (think early '70's) and this would have made an SBR that had to be registered. Sounds somewhat similar.
