If my charger incl suppressor is over 16.5" - would it technically be a rifle?

Pretty sure the suppressor would have to be permanently attached (pin & welded)

If the suppressor is still removable then technically no it is still a pistol.

It would only become a rifle it you put a stock on it. +16" barrel doesn't turn it into a rifle.

This. And long barreled pistols are not a problem.

On the other hand, if you put a stock on and failed to put a 16"+ barrel on - you'd have a short barreled rifle. And those are NOT legal.

Note- It's okay to configure a receiver registered as a Charger into a rifle. But it's NOT okay to configure a receiver registered as a 10/22 into a pistol.
