Default Changing description of SBR

Whats the rule on changing a permanent description of an SBR. I have a AR in 10.5" 300BO, that I want to change to 556.

Everything must be done legal, I don't like pushing the line at all, no do I wish to carry a 300BO with me to the range when I carry the one in 556. Plus I wish to pull the barrel, so I can't switch it back.

Without going into all the rigmarole, I'll just say that buying a .300 BLK upper is likely gonna be your cheapest legal option.


( keep the .223 upper from the description )

Then do I have to carry both uppers with me when I go to the range?

From what I understand, you are only subject to inspection by the batflyers, and if called upon for such an inspection, if you present the weapon in the condition described on the NFA form, all is good.


Many SBR owners have multiple uppers for their SBR'd AR15.

Nalioth is correct. I have a 12.5” SBR HK that at one time I ran an 8 inch barrel on. I retained the 12.5” barrel at home. I switched back to the 12.5” barrel. So keep the original barrel.

There is no penalty in the statute or duty to inform of changes made.
