    Looks like fun. But there’s one simple problem, or maybe two. If you attach a shoulder stock to a pistol with a barrel less than rifle length, it becomes an SBR (short barreled rifle) under the National Firearms Act. This is why Thompson-Center warns you not to put an Encore pistol barrel on a stocked rifle receiver. In fact, the mere session of this kit along with a pistol that fits in it might constitute constructive possession of an SBR. Without a tax stamp, you’re heading for felony-land. No more guns for you.

    And even without the shoulder stock, this kit has trouble written all over it because of that cute little foregrip. A pistol with a vertical foregrip becomes an AOW (any other weapon) which also requires a tax stamp.

    • avatarj_rico says:

      I would hazard a guess that this would not violate the SBR or AOW provisions as the shell is not actually attached to the pistol but is gripped in the shell just like being in a holster. Which would make this a shooting rest.

      • avatarChris Dumm says:

        Anything which attaches to a pistol which acts as a shoulder stock converts that pistol into an SBR. Those old wooden holster/stocks on Broomhandle Mausers? SBRs. 'Artillery' Lugers with the shoulder stock attached? SBRs. Colt SAAs with wire shoulder stocks? SBRs.

        This attachment actually clamps around the frame of the donor Glock, and appears to be held on by some kind of sliding clips. Trust me, it's an SBR.

        EMA's own website (way down at the bottom) indeed warms potential buyers to get their NFA permits before they order the conversion.

    They are likely relying on the United States v Thompson/Center supreme court case where the court ruled that converting a pistol to a rifle was not illegal.

  3. avatarBambiB says:

    The problem would be the BATF – which we should ban.

    Did anyone else perceive the "silencer" as a bit flimsy? Looked like it was jumping up and down about half an inch. I note no claims are made for accuracy. Could it be that the handgun is not so securely mounted that it is actually LESS accurate than without the pod?

    And what's with the full-auto intro? Looks sexy, yeah. But what exactly is going on there?

    • avatarj_rico says:

      The silencer was jumping around because it is actually attached to the barrel of the pistol, not to the shell holding the pistol.

    “They are likely relying on the United States v Thompson/Center supreme court case where the court ruled that converting a pistol to a rifle was not illegal.
    You are correct if you install a stock AND a barrel of at least 16″ on a TC then it is not a SBR but a rifle by definition.
    My understanding is that the reverse is NOT true.
    You cannot legally take a TC Rifle action and install a pistol grip & a 6″ barrel and call it a pistol. You have created another SBR since the action was originally manufactured & transferred as a rifle not a pistol.

    Everyone is discussing the legality of this device and no one has brought up how silly it is. They should remake it to accompany a rubber dart gun and sell it at toys r us. Or maybe with a BB gun. Point being it should be marketed at those who play with Transformers; I would’ve loved something like this when I was 8. That said, if you want or need a PDW get one and leave your handgun in it’s holster for when you do need it. And if someone wants to make the argument this solves the problem of carrying two different type magazines then, well, just don’t. For your own sake please don’t.

      You need to do a bit more research! Fab Defense makes a similar pistol carbine kit, which is approved by the Swiss Police. I have a RONI kit for my Glock 20 (10mm), and if you think using a 10mm round for a pistol and carbine isn’t beneficial, you don’t know much about tactical advantages. I have a carbine for targets up to 100 yards, and if quarters get tight, I can remove the pistol from the kit and sweep rooms without ever changing weapons, mags or ammo. A no-brainer! By the way, the media loved this kit at Shot Show 2011.

    Are these kits available for the bersa thunder .45 uc pro?

  8. avatarmatt says:

    are they going to do a universal conversion kit? because this would be awesome on my EAA witness p full.

  9. avatarchad says:

    You cant physically take delivery of the Roni until your ATF paper work has been completed. Yes it has to be registered as an SBR.

    • avatarRoger says:

      Not wanting to sound like a know-it-all, but YES, you can. I took delivery of mine without a tax stamp. Where it becomes (allegedly) illegal according to ATF is when you actually insert the Glock into the chasis before getting the tax stamp. They have to be physically separated or you risk a felony weapon charge short of giving the fed money which, for some reason, makes it legal and safer than before you write out another $200 check.

    is ther aconvertion kit for a40 cal to a357 mag??

  11. avatarchase says:

    When you use a 16 ” barrel you do not need a tax stamp. I have done sevrral stocks on glocks with 16 ” barrel. Atf ok with that
