Then just submit SBR paperwork and $200 and 8 months later you can put on a proper rifle stock. Beautiful.

See what I wrote "Nice compact AR15 pistol". No need for SBR paperwork. The thing about SBR is (beside the paperwork, wait time, and tax stamp) that you HAVE to notify the government each and every time you cross any state line with the gun.

I will stay with the pistol. No SBR for me any time soon.

From your link,

I am leery to use it from the shoulder.
Sorry, you might have misunderstood what I meant. You're not supposed to shoulder any of those. Even the buffer tube, I don't think you can shoulder it. When I say good to go, I mean it's legal to use as a brace and not as a stock, despite the fact that it looks like a buttstock.

And they still didnt have the fucking sense to include a mounting rail.
It's a pocket carry, anything you mount will increase the footprint of it and decrease it's main reason for existing.. .. WTF are going to mount?

From my research, you "can" use the bare tube of the AR pistol from the cheekbone of your head. I read at least one article from Guns and Ammo or was it Shooting Time just a few months ago.

Yeah, you can use it as a cheek rest. They sell these, I think they're pretty slick but I prefer the look of the shockwave. Plus the hope that some of the NFA stuff gets loosened up a litte.

$100 USD for a cheek rest and that is a sale price? Yike. I don't make that kind of money as a typical ATOTer/internet high roller...hehehehe.

This is more like it, price speaking = https://bloodandbrass.com/products/caa-sst1-m16-ar-15-stock-saddle-blk?variant=40060253703

Cheap cheek rest (mine is similar to this):



I love the look of the shockwave too, saw a few of them on sale at one of the gun show a month ago but I did not like the fact that I can not use it anywhere nears my shoulder or cheek so no go for me (for now).

You can cheek it.. you just can't put it to your shoulder. Link to the ATF weighing in..

OK, fairly obvious you have NEVER looked at pistol accessories in your life.

I picked one up about a month or so ago. It's a very nice shooting pocket gun. It feels much better in man sized hands than the previous LCP or Bodyguard does IMO. Trigger is far better as well. My only real concern is I'd like to have a safety, it would make me feel more comfortable carrying with one in the pipe. It's not had any hiccups with any ammo I've fed it, really solid so far.

I agree with him, this is a pure pocket carry pistol. Anything added to it will make me less likely to carry it under any condition. I'm not going to be firing this if I'm able to get to any other gun I own (well, except my .22 plinker pistol). I imagine if i'm ever forced to use it, it will be at a distance lasers, lights, etc. are irrelevant.

My understanding is Viridian? already has a laser for it if that's what you were interested in. I assume it just clamps flush around the trigger guard.

While I'm not going to debate with you what I have or haven't looked at.. you haven't answered the question of what you were looking to mount on a gun designed to be a pocket carry. It's hard for me to see your point when you won't say it.

For those still looking into possibly getting an AR-15, you might give this one a look. It needs a rear sight and a magazine but for a mid-length AR-15, I don't know if you'll find one much cheaper. Oh, and you can probably find a coupon code that might make it even a bit cheaper if you look around a bit. Just thought I'd throw this out there as another option for folks to consider. :)

AR15 prices are dropping like a rock if you are watching Slickguns.com. I've been debating between these three, but will probably hold off until summer reaches North Idaho. Or if I find a reasonably priced Kentucky or Pennsylvania muzzleloader first.

Slickguns.com is your friend.

Edit: and if you are looking for an S&W M&P pistol there killer rebates that started today.
Such as: S&W M&P Shield 9mm $225 after rebate + $21.99 shipping
