There is a legal way to assemble this kit. The way they suggest you assemble it is a felony. Please, if you’re a gun person, get familiar with NFA definitions. Once a rifle, always a rifle; or, in this case, an untaxed short barreled rifle.
The legal way is to use a pistol receiver; the only way to get one of those is to buy a Ruger Charger. If you have one, you don’t need this kit. FTFA:
This aftermarket kit uses your existing 10/22 receiver and rotary magazine, and assembles into a fun, fast-action custom carbine. Includes a precision 10″ E.R. Shaw barrel and an ergonomically designed warp-proof laminated pistol stock.
That, folks, is a felony.
