OK guys what is the poop on making these kritters.

Say I want to make an sbs,
can I cut down a shotgun barrel on an exsisting gun and fill out the form ( I am a SOT)

Same question for an AOW.

Or do I need a "virgin" receiver never built into a gun. (This is what I have been told needs to happen but was wondering if it's the same for sbs and aow.)

Thanks to all you smart guys!

If you are an SOT making the SBR or SBS doesn't require a virgin receiver, just fill out and file the form and put in your book and get to work.

AOW from my understanding does require a virgin receiver that has never had a stock on it.

For those of us that aren't then Form 1 approval then modifications.

That is what I thought, thank you very much for another confirmation. I asked my local ATF agent and, well it was shocking how little she knew.
