Default featureless inovations?

If it ever gets to the point where we have to go featureless to keep our rifles, i was wondering why the parts being introduced ( hammerhead and the new fs15 ),why would someone need to totally change the Pistol grip to one of these, if they have to one day or want to use hicap? I guess i over simplify things, all you would need is a cap for the PG and not some long stock variation and reinvent the wheel. I prefer my ar stocks they way they are, but maybe there's no money to be made in a 2 dollar PG cap.
my 2cents

What in the world are you talking about?

If you want to go featureless, you can't have a pistol grip. Not everyone wants a grip wrap, not everyone wants a hammerhead. Using a large capacity magazine is not the only reason. I don't care what sort of tool you have, riveted glove, gpik, ubbt, etc. I can still change my magazines faster by just hitting the button. I don't have a tool to get lost, I don't have to rely on specific magazines(if that's what your tool is).

What do you mean by 2 dollar PG cap? Putting a cap on the pistol grip so you can stick something in it doesn't make it featureless, nor is leaving a tool in there for a bullet button faster than just hitting the mag release.

I thought i was pretty plain, think about it, a cap blocks off anything, whether its a baseball cap or a pop bottle cap. I simple cap( block off) with nothing else attached is all thats needed to block off the PG, not screw anything else to it!
I have a preban bushmaster correctly registered and a couple dozen hi caps. I also have another post ban ar and ar pistol. I prefer the large cap but dont want to sacrifice the PG until i am forced to, so i use a BB for now on my post bans.
Maybe to be sure i should be clear(er)
Remove the pistol grip and put a little block off ( cap) where the PG was. Ex its REMOVED and no hammerhead or fs15 sticking out.

There are much better ideas than shooting without any grip at all

Wow......genius idea. Have Larue make a lower with a built in rail on the bottom of the lower reciever and a grip that uses e larue mount system. Snap off - snap on.

Wait...

So you want to remove the PG, and then just put a cap to hold the safety detent and spring. What is it that you plan on holding when you actually shoot? Such a device existed(and sucked) because you didn't have anything on the rifle to grab. No one makes it these days because it's moot considering monsterman, hammerhead, u-15, etc. Why would you want a featureless rifle with no place to grab onto at all? That's just... dumb.

edit: It was called the SRB, you can find a little info here: http://gunwiki.net/Gunwiki/HistoryOLL

http://www.ar15.com/forums/t_8_11/345895_.html&page=1 you can find some pictures there.

Oh boy.

I have to wonder if you're aware of what an AR-15 actually is.

If you remove the pistol grip, and replace it with a cap that does nothing to hold the safety spring and detent, where is your trigger finger hand going to go? You do realize that a "weatherby 7mm mag deer rifle" doesn't rely on the forend to hold the rifle, right? Since you either didn't bother to click on the links I provided for you, let me copy/paste an image.



Does that look anything like the weatherby you mentioned with regards to somewhere to place your hand? I supposed you could hook your thumb over the buffer tube if you're some sort of giant-handed monster, but now your thumb would be in the way of the CH while having to reach past the forward assist to pull the trigger.

Here is a weatherby rifle.



Do you understand now?

so if you put a hammerhead on you would have the same thing to hold on to, nothing as its facing back

What? You grab the hammerhead.

https://www.exilemachine.net/shop/pa...rations-2.html

Configuration 3 allows you to get your thumb over the top. Configuration 4 doesn't allow your thumb over the top but you can still use your other 3 fingers wrapped around the bottom.

Are you just trolling or something now? You're commenting on things and making silly statements and it's like you've never understood how to grip a "traditional" stock on a bolt action hunting rifle.



Compare that to the SRB image I posted above. If you still can't figure out the difference...

Slap a pic rail adapter on it, flip it upside down, leave it as a single shot, call it a tactical mini key.

I just wish someone made a featureless stock with ergonomics similar to an AR pistol grip. Something similar to Thordsen's stock, but with the grip more like an AR one.

Sure, except for the ergonomics could be better than a brick (hammerhead) or angled brick (hammerhead). I'm waiting to try the Thordsen one.

Now, how about an AR pistol grip with the rest of the stock attached to it? One just needs to wrap the thumb around it, without a thumbhole (since there'd be no hole).

I guess I need to clarify my statement a little better:

The whole point of these grips and stocks is so it's not like a basic AR pistol grip, so we can have featureless builds without getting arrested and going to court to defend AW charges.

are you not aware of how "pistol grip" is defined for the purpose of the AW law? there's a reason grips and stocks for featureless ARs look the way they do.

So what you are saying is you want a better contoured hammerhead?

Solar Tactical grip wrap. You get used to putting your thumb up instead of around pretty quick.

Soooooo, has anyone tried to design something U-15-like, for sale?

I am SURE that someone great like Exile Machine could come up with something...

Any thoughts, Exile?

I think you mean 556 vs 762 or gp vs di.
