Felony under federal law.. At least 1 yr or more in prison, unless deal is made with prosecution. (BTW, a sawed off shotgun does nothing for shooting the gun. It only provides better concealment)

Actually, that answer is only partially correct. First, you can have a shotgun with a sawed off barrel in any state if the barrel is still more than 18 inches long and the overall length of the shotgun is 26 inches.

Second, if you saw of the barrel to less than 18 inches or the overall length to less than 26 inches, it becomes a class III or NFA weapon. Those are legal to own in 38 or 39 states. You must apply to the ATF for approval and pay a tax fee. If you do this without ATF approval, that's when it is a felony.

Third, sawing the barrel off does in fact change the way the gun shoots. Generally speaking it will make the recoil heavier because the gun will be lighter, and it creates a wider shot pattern for buckshot or birdshot.
