Gas piston upper

And a really really short bolt carrier? Or do the GPU's not even have a bolt carrier?

a folding stock AR *could* be legal, you just need a fixed mag and something to keep it over 30"...

I'm curious how they did that. That rifle looks pretty freaking sweet!

If the overall length was over 30 inches it would be legal. 26 in Free America.

Actually, having a gas piston does not get rid of the buffer tube.
It just gets rid of the gas inside the receiver.
The ZM guns have springs on the side of the upper receiver, much like an Olympic OA93.
With that type of receiver, you could run it direct impingement or gas piston operated.

i was thinking more of a custom stock so i can use preban mags. something real conventional.

i think it would be sweet!
