Have an extra lower, and was considering setting it up for bipod/bagged pistol shooting. 5.56 or Grendel in probably 18" length, so I can use for both rifle and "pistol" configuration. What lower parts are others using for a bench pistol?
do not think you can switch it back and forth. Has be listed as either pistol or rifle and stay that way.

I had a custom LR pistol built and we had to list the action (700 clone) from the mftr on the 4473 as a pistol in order to do that.

Pretty sure that they ATF considers a rifle converted to pistol an NFA item and that requires registration and $200 tax stamp.
