Default AR pistol tube questions

What's the Real Deal on tubes vs. stocks? Ability to accept a stock or "Intended" to be fired from the shoulder? Both? Where does the "ability to accept" a stock begin and end? I've seen some people paracord wrap the tube and call it good which seems sketchy. And of course most manufacturers use dedicated pistol tubes with reduced ODs and no depressions for the stock locking mechanism. Is that just a CYA measure, or law?

This probably goes back to the "cane tip" discussion, but what's to stop someone from putting a long tube on a pistol and attempting to shoulder it (aside from the resulting bruises)?

I know AR pistol discussions have been done to death, but Calguns tends to have a better handle on gun law and NFA issues.

Like most things gun related in California, there is no "letter of the law" that tells you what you can and can't do. It all comes down to your comfort level and your willingness to possibly go to court and spend a sh*tton of money to defend a grey-area position. Gun manufacturers use dedicated pistol tubes to be safe and that's generally what is advised. I don't see anything wrong with paracord wrapping a pistol tube or even using the CAA stock-saddle thingy, because those methods actually help you "cheek" the weapon, but don't help with "shouldering" it.

As always, YMMV, but in general, don't do something you're not comfortable defending in a court of law.
