Registering Pistol as Class III for shoulder stock

Anyone know if this is possible?

I have two of the semi-auto PPs43s ordered and would love to be able to unpin the shoulder stock on one of them and make it usable, if it's legally possible. These have the short 9 7/8" or so barrel lengths.

Any info on conversion of this type appreciated.

Chris.

It would not be legal without the Federal Tax stamp.

Hi, yes I realize that. That's why I asked if it was possible to 'register' it. I'm talking a complete above board Uncle Sam get's his $200 Class III registration fee no monkey business. I'm just not sure if it's possible, or would it have to be a Class II and only ownable by a Class III dealer (ie a Sample). I'm iffy on the sample stuff..

Re: Registering Pistol as Class III for shoulder stock

I don't think I'm interested in doing this any longer. The more I read about registering a pistol as an SBR (short barreled rifle), the process seems tedious for the small return on the investment of time, money and aggravation for a little 'cool factor'. Also, one place I like to shoot is near where I work, which happens to be in a different state than where I live. I'd never be able to just bring the gun with me and go plink after work. You have to fill out a special form just to transport an NFA firearm across state lines, detailing the dates of when/where you will have the firearm. Crap, I don't know when I'll get a good 'range day' without a crystal ball. Most times, someone at work says 'wanta shoot tomorrow', and I'm like 'sure'. Not much heads up for the BATFE.
