Huntertown Arms makes a very nice, inexpensive modular (read multi-caliber) can. They're made of 3 sections. The center section is the serialized part, and is literally just a threaded tube designed to accommodate a threaded base cap in whichever caliber/pitch you want. The 3rd section contains the baffles. In other words, you can convert it to the correct barrel/caliber by changing thread adapters and end caps. It takes all of 2 minutes to do, and only requires 1 stamp. You can purchase the adapters and end caps over the counter without a stamp.

SBR is a whole other NFA stamp. If you can remove the can and end up with something that can still shoot with under a 16" barrel, you've got to get a tax stamp. No exceptions. The work around is that you have the can permanently attached in a way that only the end cap can be removed with a remaining barrel OAL of 16"(for maintenance purposes). Obviously this type of attachment method would negate the usefulness of the Kestrel model.
The "Best Tactics" to use are the ones which allow you to shoot the other guy before he shoots you. Whether your pinky is fully extended or not is a matter of aesthetics, not tactics.

Never fuck with a guy who wants to die in battle.
