AR Pistol?

I see several pistol kits for ARs, would I have to have a lower made to be a pistol? Or can I use any lower, witout the stock?

AR Pistol Lowers have to be transferred as a Pistol not a Rifle on ATF form 4473 if the Lower you want to use was on a Rifle or is registered as a Rifle it cannot be used to build a AR Pistol because it could be considered a SBR if a LEO runs the numbers and it comes back as a Rifle.
At what part of the paperwork process is it determined whether it is a rifle or a pistol? I am sorry, you probally answer this already but I do not know that much about the paperwork.
Guess it doesn't have to make sense it's just the law. No gun is worth ten years. Had an extra lower, but will just have to think of another project for it. Thanks for the info.
