Yankee Ingenuity Meets A Ban: Effort To Redesign AR-15 Underway


Dan Haar On April 12, 2013 Hartford Courant

As Mark Malkowski watched Gov. Dannel P. Malloy sign the gun control bill into law on April 4, he sat in his office with three military-style rifles.

Nothing unusual there, since Malkowski’s New Britain company, Stag Arms, makes the AR-15-style guns. But one of the black weapons was a bit different – it had a sawed-off pistol grip.

The de-gripped rifle was the first go-around in Stag’s effort to design a gun that’s legal for sale in Connecticut, and still has the core of the AR-15, the wildly popular type of rifle that represents fully one-quarter of all firearms sales in the United States.

How disgusting that he would try to subvert a law that the majority of CT citizens and legislators wanted passed. I hope this dirtbag leaves the state and takes his employees and customers with him.

I applaud their your efforts but this is just fighting a delaying action. If the final design is an effective rifle it will be banned as a "loophole".
Sure would be nice to be a wanna be again instead of a used to be.

Good for Stag, that would be legal in NY also. there was a prototype that basically had an 870 stock that floated around for years but was never manufactured

I handled some messed up no grip skeleton stock thing at an Armorer(s) course a couple months ago. Couple guys from NY brought it with them.

Guess it is better than nothing...

I came into this world kicking and screaming while covered in someone else's blood. I have no problem with going out the same way.

In a way it reminds me of this discussion.

When faced with a ban on the semi-automatic AR-15, some of our UK brothers-in-spirit designed an AR15 that required a button under the thumb be pushed after every shot, making the rifle no longer semi-automatic.

I hope it never comes to that here, but it just shows that ingenuity cannot be stopped.

I would totally get one of these. NY sucks! I hope they do come up with some ingenuity that uses AR mags. Ruger mini 14's are still legal here. Go stag!

Usually I think ban compliant rifles look like crap (the CA Monsterman grip comes to mind) but that doesn't look that bad at all. Though that could be the bourbon glasses telling me so.

I would get one of those, and I don't have your restrictions. IMHO, that is a nice looking rifle.

Well, I'm not so sure. After switchblade knives were banned there ware a lot of innovations that were never outlawed and that worked at least as well as the conventional switchblade, some even better: Kit Carson's flipper design, thumb stud openers, Speedsafe, and the Emerson wheel stud and wave. The Emerson Wave opener, for instance, is faster than a switchblade and is used by Special Ops. The fact is that the legislators are fighting a losing battle, for that and a number of other reasons.

Not that I want it and never to say that I agree. BUT, this is exactly why I dont fear a ban, because it will ultimatlyprevent nothing. There was a ban before. With a few parts swaped out, deleted or modified you were in compliance. The same rounds were still going down range. The ban expired, some grinding here, new parts there and they were back to what they needed to look like. I wish everyone else was as calm, so I could find so desent priced ammo to go to the range.

I kind of want one, and I don't even live in a ban state.

It kind of looks like the missing link between the M14 and the M16.

STAG, stop playing the CT communist game... Pack your bags and leave this shit hole!

How could you stay and pay these bastards tax revenue when they bitch slapped you andbthe entire industry across the face.

You wanna teach them a lesson... Screw your CT compliant rifles, move on.

Fyi, your 1080am interview was pathetic.
