    Is a permanent (ie: silver solder/brazed) barrel extension still an acceptable option? I thought they were doing that to bump some 4” revolvers over the prohibited line at one time.

I have considered doing some but I have way too many Garand projects on the go. Adding another rifle to the mix would be a recipe for disaster here.
    That reminds me, I have a couple of Garand receivers that need to be built into rifles too.

    I called about a carbine I didn't have. Had a welded / brazed entension ..muzzle device thingy.
    No go. In the prohib pile it was to go. Swapping out barrel didn't matter, serial number says prohib.
    Phew. Glad I missed out on a mess of paperwork. Imagine if I had one.
    Would still be filling forms.

    Oh yea, forgot to post about extensions not being accepted anymore.(in regards to barrel length) If it's not rifled they're not counting it kind of thing.
