Pistol to Rifle Upgrade Parts - ATF Compliance

The ATF has published their updated rule that your legally purchased M4-22 Pistol with Arm Brace is now an SBR

ATF 2021R-08F rule is now published, it states that you'll have until 5/31/2023 to be compliant. 

Here at Tippmann Arms we do not agree with this new ATF rule. We do feel it's important you know how to stay out of trouble with the government

Please let the courts settle this issue.

Tippmann Arms has teamed up with Gun Owners of America to help fight for 2A rights - Please read - GOA PRESS RELEASE

  

Owners of PRO, ELITE, TRS, and MICRO Pistols

To be compliant with the new rule, you will need to remove the arm brace and buffer tube or install a 16" barrel.  

Installing a smooth Pistol Buffer Tube is nessesary if you want to keep your firearm classified as a pistol.  

Installing a 16" barrel will also get you in compliance with the new rule. You can keep the arm brace in place and do nothing else.  You now have a rifle.

You can also register your pistol with the ATF as an SBR. ATF Form 1

Owners of ELITE and MICRO BugOut Models 

You will need to remove your Arm Brace and Buffer Tube to be in compliance.  The ATF says you can not have a buffer tube on a pistol unless it's required for the operation of the pistol.  The BugOut does not need a buffer tube to operate.

You can install the Rear Pic Rail, Receiver Plug and 2 Mounting Bolts used on the Compact Pistol to make your Bug Out compliant.  It will still be classified as a pistol.

Installing a 16" barrel will also get you in compliance with the new rule. You can keep the arm brace & buffer tube in place and do nothing else.  You now have a rifle.

You can also register your pistol with the ATF as an SBR. ATF Form 1 

We are now offering a Complete Upper option in this program.  You can choose an ELITE or a PRO Upper with 16" barrel.  The ELITE has the 12" Aluminum Handguard and the PRO has the 9" Composite Handguard included.  The upper will come with the 16" barrel with muzzle brake, handguard, bolt, and charging handle.

If you want to order a Complete Rifle Upper you must request an RMA and send us your lower receiver and 1 magazine to us for fitting.  Pricing is on the RMA page.

If you are not comfortable installing these parts on your firearm you can choose to receive an RMA and send your firearm to us to have these parts installed by our service department. We'll install the parts, test the rifle and return it to you.  You'll only be charged for the parts. FREE installation and FREE return shipping and all of your old parts will be returned to you.

NOTE - To remove the M4-22 barrel you must clamp the upper receiver in a vise using a Receiver Vise Block to safely remove the barrel nut. Attempting to remove the barrel nut without the receiver vise block will damage the upper.
