The legal definition of a short barreled rifle is a rifle with a barrel of less than 16 inches, or an overall length of less than 26 inches. Ownership of short barrel rifles is regulated in the United States by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. Short barrel rifle owners must register their weapons with the BATFE and pay a $200 tax fee before building a short barrel rifle or taking possession of one. Although this restriction was put into place by the National Firearms Act of 1934, modern short barrel rifles are a long way off from the weapons targeted by that law.
Modern short barrel rifles are often semi-automatic rifles. You can find magazines and parts for short barrel rifles on this page as well. While there are some retro "Tommy" guns here you're more likely to find modern lightweight carbines made of polymer and other short barrel rifles with modular designs. Swap out stocks and other parts to create the exact type of short barrel rifle you want to shoot.
