Registering a rifle as an SBR

I want to get a 14.5" AR carbine, and I already have a 16" AR-15. Can I register it as an SBR and then install a 14.5" barrel?

You get permission from BATFE to make an SBR. Once you get that (Form 1) you can make the gun; it was already registered when the Form 1 was approved. Note that you, and only you, can make the SBR. If you use a gunsmith, you don't need the Form 1, but the gunsmith must be licensed as an NFA manufacturer and you must take/send the gun to him; he will alter it and return it on a Form 4 after BATFE approval of the transfer.

since we're talking about an AR here, the creator needn't be a C2, you think?
the barrel is simply an upper. the creator just needs to ensure that the short
barreled upper has a matching lower which has already been
one. in other words, no SBR with two short bbl uppers. this, or no AR lower
at all in their possession. am i off base here?
