I don't believe that would matter.
If you have a 12 gauge, with a rifled barrel, you can't cut it to 16", using "the barrel is rifled, so it's a rifle" argument. It's chambered for a shotgun shell, so it's a shotgun. By the same token, the rifled 12 gauge is not a "destructive device", even though it is a rifle in excess of 50 caliber, because it is chambered for a shotgun shell so it is a shotgun.
The pistols, like the Taurus Judge, that are chambered for 410, are legal because they are chambered in a pistol round (45 Colt) and 410 shotshell will work in them. If you shoot a 45 in a standard 410 barrel it would rupture the barrel.
But, yes, 100 Bullets is very wrong. The only one that can register a gun with the NFA is the manufacturer.
Cakes is also wrong. "Permanently welded shut" will not meet ATF's requirements for making it "in-op". That would involve torch-cutting the receiver in a couple or three places, and pieces of metal being missing, so there is no way to ever put it back together.
