Can I put a PDW stock on an AR pistol?

One absolutely could finagle a PDW stock on a 16-inch barreled AR-15, but it would look weird as hell. PDW stocks are typically considered for barrels shorter than 10.3 inches, with some even less than 7.5 inches. The TL/DR version is this: A PDW is all about compromise and bargaining.

What is an SCW stock?

Can I put a stock on an ar15 pistol?

As we mentioned before, pistols can’t have stocks. Only rifles have stocks. So even if your gun has a barrel shorter than 16” and is shorter than 26” overall, if you put a stock on it, you have a short-barrel rifle.

Can an AR pistol have a folding brace?

A brace is legal for a pistol because it is not a stock so doesn’t make the gun an unregistered short-barreled rifle.

Can you put a stock on a pistol with a 16 inch barrel?

Some manufacturers produce firearm receivers and attachable component parts that are designed to be assembled into both rifles and pistols. The same receiver can accept an interchangeable shoulder stock or pistol grip, and a long (16 or more inches in length) or short (less than 16 inches) barrel.

Why are short barrel rifles illegal?

Short-barreled rifles, with barrels less than 16 inches, are regulated under the National Firearms Act, meaning they’re subject to greater restrictions and regulations than long-barreled rifles. That’s because shorter barrels are more dangerous because they can be more easily concealed in a jacket or bag.

What is the shortest AR?

The shortest barrel you will find on most AR-15s is 7.5 inches, but this two-inch-barreled gun is not most ARs. For reference, the military’s M4 carbine sports a 14.5-inch barrel, which many believe offers the best combination of accuracy, velocity, and portability.

What is the shortest barrel allowed on an AR 15?

The vast majority of AR barrels fall between the 14.5″ military M4 type and the 20″ M16 size, with 16″ being currently the most popular for civilians. You can buy 14.5″ barrels, but for most of us, it would require a muzzle device at least 1.5 inches long, and permanently attached, to meet the legal 16″ minimum.

Why is an AR pistol not an SBR?

The difference between an SBR and an AR pistol boils down to one thing; a Short Barrel Rifle has a buttstock while a pistol does not. The AR Pistol is 100% legal for any non restricted American to own while the SBR requires special paperwork for every rifle issued by the ATF.
