Obtaing A Kahr M1 Sbr... Options?
Posted 04 October 2004 - 06:36 PM
searching and talking to various people I have 2 ways to go about this and
I am not sure which is better. I am requesting input on the opinions on
First I have noticed that the 16" barrel thompson is listed on kahr's
website with a MSRP of $1041.00 but they sell for brand new at various
places at $800-$850. Now the 10.5" is listed with a MSRP of $1352.00, so
if I do the math I should be able to get that for at most $1200.00 or so
somewhere (if someone can recommend a dealer that carries SBR's I would
appreciate it). I then looked at the MSRP for the 10.5" barrel on the
website which is $175. Now let's say I get the 16" tommy and buy the
10.5" barrel that would mean about a total cost of about $1000 and I
would have a spare barrel and I don't see how having a gunsmith install
the 10.5" barrel could be more than $200 dollars, so this seems to be the
way to go (plus I would have a spare barrel). Plus I would not have to
wait 3-6 months to have the Tommy in my posesstion (would have to wait to
buy the 10.5" barrel of course).
Secondly I would be transfering the gun to my corp and if the corp was
going to dissolve for whatever reason I could put the 16" barrel back on,
get rid of the 10.5" barrel and notify the BATF that it was no longer SBR.
The other possiblity is maybe at that point in time I will live in a
county that has a CLEO that would sign the form 4 and transfer it to me
from the company.
I guess what it boils down to is if I can find someone that is Selling the
SBR's for under $1200 I will probably go that route other wise I see
getting a 16" converted to a SBR as a better choice.
Thank you for you opions in advance
