Just wondering if anybody here has any experience or knows someone who has experience with this conversion. Basically it turns a glock 17 into a carbine. I have a friend overseas who owns one and am wondering about acquring one in the future. One popped up for sale here in DFW a couple of months back.
My only hang up with this is the SBR aspect of this. Since there are so many quality pistol caliber carbines out there that don't require paying extorsion fees, I don't see a need for this.
Don't retreat! Reload!!!
It does have a high "cool" factor.... But I already have my own version of this....

I am very interested in the Roni but i am unsure if it's legal in California? Can someone please help me out?
I understand that BATF has taken a keen eye to this and those that might have one. This was a subject on a radio show several months ago and they as well mentioned the BATF. I would BING or Google it and see what info is out there.
The term "Undocumented Alien" is like calling a drug pusher an "Un-Licensed Pharmacist"
This is uber-cool, and, I imagine illegal without an FFL allowing SBR rules.
IF you get a RONI watch out because they are banned in some states and in others if not all of them you have to get a tax stamp. The same one as if you own a suppressor

my opinions are just that, mine. I try to post facts backed with facts but that is not always posable so take it for what it is.
According to the Gun Blog, the ATF is considering changes to its rules for acquiring ClassIII/TitleII 'stuff' = the most important (to me at least) is that it removes the onerous duty to get LEO sign-off...so many CLEOs have become "Richards" (in the diminutive usage) and for reasons, personal or other refuse to sign the form which asserts that there are no local restrictions on the ownership of such a firearm or device. The other changes are with regard to corporations and trusts (both of which are mostly used to get around the CLEO requirement.) The new regs would require fingerprints for principals of the corporation/trusts - I've got buddies who live in Palm Beach County here in FL and the Sheriff WILL NOT sign off on their forms (although he used to - until the WPB anti-gun mayor sic'ed here lawyers on him), so these guys purchase through a corporation...if the new regs are adopted LEOs could no longer play the Hitler/Stalin/Mao game with law abiding citizen.
