thanks in advance , botica

A folding stock by itself is legal.

However, if you possess a handgun and an unattached folding stock designed for that handgun, you may run afoul Federal & state constructive possession laws regarding SBRs.

Other than that, they are legal to own by themselves.

Issues may arise when you attach it to a certain types of firearms.

Generally per Quiet's advice above, yes.

Notable exception is the "SlideFire" SSAR15 stock (and the AK version too) that facilitates bumpfilre/more rapid firing (according to even their own promotional literature & sales videos).

These devices are considered 'multiburst trigger activators' and are separately illegal even when not attached to a gun and even when no gun is possessed.

yes. legal on a fixed mag rifle as well as long as the required 30" OAL is maintained.

Hi Guys, I just saw this and wanted an opinion. You obviously cannot operate the rifle while in the folded position. Thoughts?

I don't see how a stock that retains the buffer prevents the weapon from firing at least once in the folded position. It seems to come with a new design buffer, but how does it prevent the hammer from falling?

Dave, that's an excellent point that escaped me. Looking forward to other opinions but it's looking more illegal* by the minute...


*IMO when used on a CA configured rifle

That one is piston driven, with it's operating spring extending forward over the operating rod housing. The spring "pulls" the bolt carrier back into battery. So, no need for a buffer and spring in the buttstock.
