Hi bri,
Please dont convert a pistol to a small rifle and 'up the power over 6ftlb', a pistol is and always will be classed as a pistol, no matter what you do to it, but if you take it over the 6ftlb, it will become classed as an illegal firearm.
You could however SHORTEN an air rifle as long as you dont remove the stock to a pistol grip, that could then make it an over powered pistol /concealable firearm.

All very muddy and messy waters to wade through.

Ps all our legally held airguns are classed as unlicensed firearms, and as such, all and every firearm legislation applies to them, not just the airgun law section.
Crashing and burning
