Is it legal to shoot a bullet-button equipped AR with the retractable stock totally removed? As long as the total length is over 30", I would think that would be ok, but I don't know for sure.

Thanks.

If your AR is over 30" without the stock, how long is it with your stock extended?

(I think it is legal, but I'm not a lawyer. The only requirement I have seen is the 30" OAL, not that there specifically has to be a stock)

As long at it has a barrel over 16" and has an OAL of over 30", I can't see why having a stock on or not would matter.

But there may be some weird area, where it make be considered a pistol if it doesn't have a stock.

Yeah I don't know. I do know that I definitely wouldn't have a forward grip on it with out a stock. Unless someone here can definitely prove i's o.k.

I mean who knows if it's even illegal, but you could be asking for some problems from a totally uniformed LEO. I mean they may not even be uninformed, this is one of those, no one has done it, so there is no precedent for it.
