best cheap substitute of an MP5
I want one
I like it.
saw pics a few weeks ago looks nice, wish they went with cheap sten mags though. But I already have a 16" 9mm upper no rush for me to buy an AR pistol
Love it. But you have to be 21 to get it, right? Because its considered a pistol?
Fack me in the ass.
dont care for the buffer tube sticking out either looks kinda dumb, I think I'de rather pay $200 and do an SBR
So what's the advantage of having it classified as a handgun as opposed to a rifle?
No stock, forward grips on handgun, if its classified as a SBR you can put whatever you want on it.
Pics of said SBRs?
Hmmmmm, what kinds of paperwork do you need to own one of those? Damn a Surefire or any suppressor on that would own.
File a Form1, and $200 tax stamp.
so whats the purpose of that thing protruding from the back
It can be a pain to clean but I dont consider it that bad, I mean there are other 5.56 rifles I'de rather have but whats available for under a grand besides the AR? mini14 sucks, 5.56 ak's so so and mag issues. I'de love to have a Galil, FNC, SCAR, FAMAS, SA80 etc but prices are outragous, some you aren't imported and none of them have the advantage of being able to use multiple calibers.
Its the buffer tube normally hidden by the stock
No advantage other than you can get it without having to file it as an SBR. You can't put a stock on it though... Well, can't legally put a stock on it.
thought bushmaster discontinued the Car15 lineup. or was that the bullpup.
They did away with the bullpup and their 308 ar.
can you put a stock like that over the back of it?
one guy did a review on his over on ar15.com. says it's shitty. if you are gonna get one, i'd wait for a while until they make the improvements.
no. you cannot attach a shoulder stock to a gun registered as a pistol... EVER. the thing on the back is the buffer tube where the bolt recesses when a shot is fired, it is in no way meant to be a handle while shooting.
could you pay $200 (register the weapon as a short barreled rifle) and attach a stock?
no. if the lower is registered as a pistol, it has to stay a pistol forever, no stock ever attached. you'd have to buy a rifle lower and register it as an SBR, which is cheaper anyway.
