The only one that I had seen in an ar15 pistol type format was the olympic arms, but lately I've been noticing the RRA pistols as well.

Heres a pic of one

Is there anything 'physically' stopping you from putting on a fixed or retractable stock onto one of these?

Where I live theres no law stating that you can't have a fixed stock on a .223 pistol. Legal matters aside if your from the states, is there something that the reciever is missing to attach one? Or is it just a matter of replacing the buffer tube with one that supports a retractable stock?

thanks

Not sure of the physical limitations, but wouldn't a stock on it make it a rifle then? And it would be a SBR and subject to those rules.

He's in Canada. They don't have as many silly rules there.

No idea if it'll work or not though.

Yes, simply replace the buffer tube and add the stock.

Of course, here in the US, putting a stock on a pistol would constitute construction of an SBR without BATF approval.

The buffer tube for a pistol is different than one for a 6 pos stock or similar. You just need to find a stock you like, pull off the buffer tube and replace.

Careful, if you have never done it, the tube body holds a pin down in the frame. If you just back the tube out and have the upper off the gun, you will have a peice of metal flying around the room.

open the upper and look at where the tube meets the lower. see the pin? See how the body of the buffer tube holds it down? Thats the one.

With the upper off the lower, you can push thatr pin down, remove the spring and then you cna back the body out, making sure you hold onto that spring loaded pin.

Then reverse with new stock.

Except that whole universal registration(of owner and gun) thing, though I suppose it's better than NJ, atleast for handguns.
