    Default Any reason NOT to SBR my Stribog SP9A1?

    I've got a Stribog SP9A1 that I absolutely love and I'm considering SBRing. I was dead set on doing that when I first got it but the SBA3 was surprisingly comfortable so I haven't. The benefit of it being a pistol is that I can take it across state lines (going to see my friend who lives in West Virginia often), have it loaded in the vehicle with me, etc but were it an SBR, it would be more comfortable to shoot but that's all. I have the form 1 kit from the BATFE on my end table but it's a lot of work for what doesn't seem like a huge improvement. What do you think?

    Hope this is not Chris's blood ...

    If you go the nfa route, you have to get govt permission to travel between states with it. If the goal is to have it as a truck gun, I would leave it a pistol personally.

    She looks like a keeper!

    I have a Scorpion in pistol form, and can't justify it as an SBR for the same reasons that you listed, fortunately for me I have a Sig MPX that I bought as a factory SBR so I have the best of both worlds.

    Keep it as a pistol I say.

    Everybody knows MY stance on begging the g0v for permission and having paper trails, but going beyond that - even if I wasn't anti-SBR... what's the point? "SBA3 - mission accomplished."

    I just got an SBA3 for a pistol and while I've yet to shoot it, it shoulders REAL nice - to the point it may even be more comfy than my carbine stocks. (Magpul MOE and MFT Minimalist)
    I have a pistol with a Shockwave Blade and it does the job, but it's absolutely not as comfy as the SBA3.

    Maybe one day the president will say that he doesn't like braces and ban them too, but until then...

    I'd SBR it, because I SBR everything and I wish I had one of those to SBR.
    LOL.

    Once you shoot it with a stock, you will forget about the $200 bucks and whatever it cost to get it engraved. It's worth it.

    You can take an NFA item across state borders. You just have to inform ATF using their form. And you can also have an SBR loaded in a vehicle, since it's a firearm.

    For me, I like SBR's that are 'clones' of the real deal, so I would only do it if I could get a Stribog stock. They were available a few months ago, but OOS now. I toyed with getting one (and a stock), but decided on a Zenith 5RS. I kind of regret it, as I'm having issues with that.

    Precisely why Iím ditching the SBA3 on my Scorpion. Currently waiting on my form one. If braces go the way of bumpstocks, thereís going to be an insane influx of form 1s, and Iíd rather be ahead of that wave.

    What's your Z5 doing? My Feb 2018 production model runs flawlessly.
    Sorry but I'm all out of pity right now, please try later.

    Is it required that you get it engraved as well? I was never really able to get an answer on that in my NFA research. I thought you only needed to engrave it if you intended to sell it. I already have labeled this a keeper for life along with my Beretta 92 pistols (92FS, 92A1, and M9A1).
    Hope this is not Chris's blood ...

    I actually had one of my friends shoulder the Stribog with the SBA3 and my Rainier Arms AR-15 with a Hogue stock and she likes the SBA3 better. Probably the shape of the cheek rest. I prefer the Hogue stock but not by much.

    I prefer the AR stocks. I don't care for folding stocks in general. Regarding the Zenith, I hate paddle magazine releases and guns that don't have last round bolt hold open (MP5 clones, AKs to name a few) so yeah, I can see why you'd regret that decision. Sorry to hear it's not working out though. I've had my share of firearms that turned out to be huge disappointments for various reasons; Ruger PCC most recently.
