Don’t push the 13.5” LOP. You’ll be in butt stock territory. Which then you now have the possible intent to use a pistol brace as a stock, which then would possibly make your “other” an SBR in the eyes of Johnny law.
Stay under 13.5 LOP to not flirt with that line. That’s a no no.

There are letters about this from the atf to manufactures of pistol braces about constructive intent and length of pull restrictions and “shouldering”. Read up.

Isn't the point of short barrels and short braces/stocks to be short?

Bottom of second page under the picture, and on the last page.
I know they are talking about a specific brace, but it does include a generalized paragraph which containes a statement, of how and what they consider a stock vs a brace based on lop.

Also here are some more letters for reference as well.

thank you very much. that explains perfectly . What i am surprised is that  the measurement is taken with the trigger all the way back.
