Would there be anyway to do a AR pistol in the simular configuration like the
Spikes ST15 - 22 caliber Rifle SBR Class III
http://www.spikestactical.com/z/images/large/Feb07%20042%20(Small)_LRG.jpg

I wouldnt want the folding Stock of course because it than wouldnt be a pistol any longer but see how there is no buffer tube is these possible?
Thanks everyone in Advance

Sure. You don't need a buffer for .22lr.

You couldn't do the front VFG without a AOW tax stamp, either.

Spikes sells the receiver plug for use on .22lr AR pistols I think. One of the drawbacks with a CA .22lr AR pistol is that you can't take advantage of the detachable magazine allowed on .22lr AR rifles.

That's a good question but I think it has to do with the safe handgun law and the fact you would need to dros as a single shot and the whole mag outside of the pistol grip thing.

Detachable magazine pistols with magwells outside of the grip are assault weapons. Does not matter if it's a rimfire or centerfire. Sorry.

Because the mag. is located outside the grip. Like a Tek9

ahhhh... thanks all for the answers heres my final question when DROs the gun can i still be able to use a bobsled to DRO's it since its only a .22lr and i was looking at Umlaut Arm's they make a Grendal and a Beowulf Pistol Upper how nasty would that be :)

It has to be a functional single shot pistol when DROS'ed. So do it in .223 first then you can covert it to .22lr or 9mm later.

so only he .22lr conversion takes an internal buffer?

The Ciener type of .22lr AR conversions have a recoil spring that's held completely inside of the upper receiver. A buffer tube assembly is not neccessary. If I can find a SIG 556 folding stock for a reasonable price, I'd like to have a .22lr AR folder.
