Re: Shortest legal barrel for rifle???
As I understand it, rifles are limited to 16inches.
It looks as though pistols are not limited in barrel length, however I think that some states may have different laws.
At least were not Canada, my wifes custom 16.5 inch barreled 10-22 was under their 18.5, oddly enough a 16.25 inch chipmunk was ok since it was factory original..... As long and as tedious as atf rules are to wade through it could be worse.
