Wasn't there a German pistol (a Luger?) that had a wooden scabbard where the gun was holstered/stored? It could then be attached to the grip and shouldered like a rifle. Would this be classed as an SBR, despite the fact it is a pistol? Or would the holster/stock be a "brace"? The pictures I have seen in the "stocked mode" shows the shooter using their left hand bracing the pistol under the barrel in front of the trigger.
Im a little sketchy on the legal details, the High Power was originally configured as you described, with 1000 meter tangent sights (later changed to 500m)! I believe that if you had one as originally configured with the original scabbard/stock, it is legal as a C&R pistol. Replacing the stock with a replacement reproduction stock was somehow not legal. I think FN produced some commemorative models in the 70s.
Under C&R rules, I think they would still be legal. Its unlikely one would be used in some kind of mass shooting, given the age, cost and rarity. They were also made in this configuration by Inglis of Canada during WWll. An Inglis reproduction stock seem to be going for $145, NFA rules apply at Sarco.
I do not have one... probably never will though it would be a fun set for the collection.
These were popular with the Germans after they captured Belgium.
