SBR back to a pistol.

I am thinking of buying a gun that is a registered SBR and having
it converted to a pistol before the transfer. I don't want to go through
the SBR process. Have any of you seen this done?

IIRC the seller just has to send a letter to the ATF to unregister (deregister?) the gun as an SBR. Would obviously need to include the serial number, probably include a copy of the tax stamp.

Google it. I'm still learning about this SBR stuff.

He's correct ^. The registered owner needs to send a letter to the NFA requesting the serial number be removed from the registry. Once the serial is removed they will send a letter saying as much and the gun can be sold again as a non-TII pistol.
Takes a while. You have to rely on the mail system and the NFA's ever present delay. I sold an SBR MP5 clone years ago by sending the letter to the NFA and sending the rifle off to have a fake can permanently installed. Once the rifle arrived back to me I sent it off to the buyers FFL. About a month later I got the letter from the NFA.

A $200 tax stamp purchased to SBR the rifle plus months wait for approval. Why doesn't owner just pull receiver, keep with stamp and swap in a fresh $40 lower for you to make a pistol of it? When SBRed a rifle in past had to engrave Trust name as maker so does this SBR have additional engraving? Keeps from flushing $200 tax stamp down drain and if owner decides wants another SBR down the road pulls lower and stamp from vault and has the hard part already done, approved tax stamp and lower in hand.

It's a PTR that started life as a pistol.

Ok. I’ll delete my post. I guess I’m hyper about people jumping on someone that was trying to help and made an honest assumption. I’ll go back in my corner too. Kumba ya time.
