See the ATF's new proposed rules for determining whether firearms incorporating stabilizing braces should be considered pistols or short barreled rifles (SBRs) here:

Factoring Criteria for Firearms with Attached “Stabilizing Braces” | Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives

On June 7, 2021, the Attorney General signed ATF proposed rule 2021R-08, “Factoring Criteria for Firearms with Attached ‘Stabilizing Braces,’” amending ATF’s regulations to clarify when a rifle is “intended to be fired from the shoulder.”

The proposed rule uses a number of criteria concerning both the design of the brace, as well as its configuration on the weapon, in order to determine whether the weapon is intended to be shouldered. For existing weapons which would be considered short barreled rifles under the proposed rule, no provision will be made for grandfathering those weapons, and the ATF will not be waiving the $200 NFA tax stamp for current owners.
