Now that the ban is over it would be silly to have a fake collapsible stock on your AR.

There is undoubtedly a bunch of them out there, but I haven't seen anyone trying to sell one. So, what are ya'll doing with them? The only thing I could see being worth anything would be the buffer and spring.

Ship them to Diane Feinstein. Postage due, of course. :)

I think they would make a very nice tactical doorstop.

Who's that guy that was making fences out of either M1 or M14 stocks? He could probably find a use for 'em....

Well unfortunately I gotta keep mine till I can manage to get outta NJ. But then who knows. On another note I was wondering if there is a way to convert the pinned bushmaster telestock into a working telestock or is it stuck open permenantly?

They go into the same dusty old box as the front sight bases without bayonet lugs and barrels without threads.:D

If I'm not mistaken, some of the manufacturers use a full length buffer tube to ensure that you can't return it back a collapsible stock.

I vote we build a memorial out of them, inscribing each with the names of people (individuals and groups) killed by "gun control."

As Redlg155 pointed out, many of the M4-style telestocks have full-length buffer tubes, buffers, etc.

I'm keeping mine - you never know when you need an extra stock, and it'll be a nice piece to show the kiddies when talking about how ridiculous gun control is. :p

Ship them to Diane Feinstein. Postage due, of course Best idea I've heard. I have a side folding welded open wire stock AK. If I can't figure out how to cut the weld that may be what I'll do. But it's got to be done fairly quickly or the stratement would lose it's impact

Joab -- I saw somewhere that a guy was buying those welded stocks, melting the weld and repainting or reparkerizing. It might be worth a shot.

Mail the anits a cinder block instead.

If I can fix this thing cheaper than I can buy a new one I'll just mail in my box of about 20 trigger locks.

Unless someone here needs them

I didn't really want a collapsible stock at first, but after handing a few ARs with the 16" barrel and collapsible stock, it feels quite handy and nicer to deal with.

Make lamps out of them?

sell them to guys in states that still have to have them. Sell them for less than what they go for new.

My Colt stock was staked on - had to trash it in order to get it off. No loss...
