OALOAL, or Overall Length, can be a very important measurement for firearms. Most states have parameters around how long or short certain weapons can be. For example, the standard AR-15 has a barrel length of 16” which is actually the minimum length for a rifle barrel. If you attach a shorter barrel to your AR-15 without the proper paperwork and tax stamps in place, you are technically breaking the law! To use a short barrel on a rifle platform you need to officially make it a Short Barreled Rifle, or SBR. This involves a $200 tax stamp.
