This could be a rifle

if I put a longer barrel on it.

Just picked up a nice '81 T/C Contender in 223. This one has a 14" barrel and custom furniture.

There was a lot of controversy about this, even a court case where T/C sued the gov. and won on appeal (it went all the way to SCOTUS). The ATF has posted a ruling on the issue:

http://www.atf.gov/files/regulations...ing-2011-4.pdf

The executive summary is that if the "frame", i.e., the firearm was purchased as a handgun, it can be converted to a rifle with a 16" or longer barrel and buttstock, and back to a handgun, as long as the original assembly was a handgun and not a rifle.

You cannot go from an original rifle firearm to a handgun configuration.

The ATF argued that "once a rifle, always a rifle" even if it was originally a handgun, but the appellate court and SCOTUS did not agree. Now it is 'if originally a rifle from the manufacturer, then always a rifle' (paraphrased - read the PDF above for yourself).

the 'ivory' actually looks nice ( and real). but it is not. It was done by a small company that does specialty painting

I've always pictured myself owning one of these with nice wood furniture, but your "Ivory" looks fantastic!

At least from what I can tell by the pictures, it is the nicest imitation ivory I have ever seen.

I used to have a 10" Contender in 7mm TCU that I used for Production class in IHMSA. Used my Dad's 14" 7/08 for Unlimited. Nice guns.

You can by rifle length barrels and rifle stock for them too. As well as barrels in multitude of callibers from .22 LR to 45/70. VERY versatile platform.
