do these guns have a last shot bolt hold open?

if u were to get the standard carbine how hard is it to put a collapsable stock and railed forend on it?

i wouldnt want to pay a rediculous amount for there "tactical" accessories that i wouldnt want in the end and would replace

thanks in advance

thanks guys
yea roger i know about the tactical rifle but it also comes with alot of accessories id probably throw away (red dot sight light laser i think?!?) and i see a huge jump in price from the standard carbine to the tactical model and i can get an inexpencive buttstock and quad rail for alot less than the price jump which is why i wanted to know how to install them

why no hold open? iv had no experience with the old MACs did they have a hold open?

ive kinda fallen in love with the MPAs seeing all the good reviews both in magazines and from owners on the internet i havent really seen anything bad on them yet

a 22 plinker sounds like a cool new toy im loving the fact that so many companies are doing this these days (GSG-522 Colt/Smith&Wesson ARs etc..)

why no hold open?Lot's of good combat weapons don't have a hold open. I've never really seen the need for one myself. iv had no experience with the old MACs did they have a hold open?Originals fired from an open bolt. IIRC, the bolt stayed forward after the last round, then the weapon was cocked and the mags were exchanged.
