Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

What does it mean SBR?

SBR = Short Barreled Rifle One of our ridiculous U.S. guns laws requires that "normal" rifles have a barrel length of 16 inches or greater. If you want to have an SBR, you have to first get approval from the government by filling out forms and paying a one-time tax stamp to get it registered. A lot of people here have semi-auto versions of originally full-auto firearms but they tend to sometimes look a little abnormal with a longer than normal barrel. (Good examples of this are the Thompson, and the UZI). That's why some owners will consider it, but not worth the cost and effort in my opinion.

Thanks for explanation. I remember the "strange" UZI with long barrel.

Some of us live in states where you can't own them, even if you own a house. In my case I can't even own a semi auto remake, because I can't even own a SBR.
very true, and a shame you can't own a SBR let alone a MG. but I was directing my post to steamer. Az. allows ownership of MGs, as well as all the other NFA weapons
COOL IT WITH THE BOOM-BOOMS!! OVA-DAY!!
