Legality Question

I have an 11.5" barrel Colt 733 clone with a soldered 5" flash hider to bring the barrel to legal length.  I am wondering if I can add a folding stock adapter and still be legal.  Unfolded its fine but folded, I am not sure if the total length (28"?) is legal or would it matter.  The adapter screws the 733 clone idea but it would make for an easily deployable weapon for a back pack......Damn, maybe I need to build another SBR with the folding adapter.  Ahhhh BRD.

Is a rifle a firearm subject to the NFA?

 
 

A rifle is defined, in part, as a weapon designed or redesigned, made or remade, and intended to be fired from the shoulder and designed or redesigned and made or remade to use the energy of the explosive in a fixed cartridge to fire only a single projectile through a rifled bore for each single pull of the trigger.

A rifle is subject to the NFA only if the rifle has a barrel or barrels of less than 16 inches in length. A weapon made from a rifle is also a firearm subject to the NFA if the weapon as modified has an overall length of less than 26 inches or a barrel or barrels of less than 16 inches in length.

[26 U.S.C. §§ 5845(a)(3)-(4), (c)]

This is another reason I went with a AR pistol, it’s way easier to carry in a bag with a brace and 10.5 barrel & no need to SBR it or worry when crossing state lines....
