If a Thompson Center is purchased with a shoulder stock and a long barrel on it, it is a violation of state law to replace the stock with a pistol grip and/or the barrel with a short barrel. If a Thompson Center comes into this state with a pistol grip on it, all license and safety inspection requirements apply. A Thompson Center pistol may legally be converted from a pistol to a rifle; however it cannot be converted back.
From the link that DrTodd posted:
I didn't know the bolded part. I thought that since it was originally registered as a pistol you could return it to it's original configuration....MSP says no. Are they correct, did this change, did they misinterpret the law, or am I just remembering incorrectly?
