I have been a loyal Larue customer for the past 3 years. A couple days ago I submitted a $2k+ order which included some LMT SOPMOD stocks. Larue refuses to ship me the stocks because I live in CT. Collapsible stocks are not illegal in CT. Several local gun stores sell collapsible stocks as they allowed to be installed on pre-bans. I am disappointed that Larue has a policy that is more onerous than the actual law. I politely called and made my case to a salesperson and was told there was nothing he could do. I hope that by posting this, Larue can reconsider how they treat AR enthusiasts living in ban-states.

Another one of these threads.

Lets see...their ass on the line if something goes south, not yours, regardless of the law.

Did you order a rifle in this purchase? Cause if you did, they pretty much spell it out for you on the website.

Well, at least he isn't complaining about not getting enough free stuff with his order.

Larue's business practices and decisions on things where legality is involved is their choice and should be respected. They didn't base that decision on your opinion of the law, they based it on what was best for their company. I respect your dissapointment in the matter but that doesn't mean Larue treated you as a customer poorly and coming on here to publically try to shame them into selling you one isn't in the best interest of yourself or Larue. Check the EE or try another vendor. Hope you find one and end up happy though brother.

Seems like some basic "Put yourself in the other guys shoes" kind of thinking would have gone a long way. If I was LaRue I wouldn't sell to you either. If you don't like it go complain to the ATF and CT government.

Yeah, check out the EE.

You can probably score them cheaper anyway.

Why not look for a B5 Stock as they are the same thing anyway and a helluva lot cheaper. Buy one used, or have someone you know in another state get you one. There are so many ways to get this done. If it's spelled out on Larue's website, then you can't expect them to risk their ass.

I can understand the frustration, grkmec.

However, LaRue's business, LaRue's ass on the line, LaRue's rules.

I did not order a rifle through them. It was strictly a parts order. No lowers involved. Guys, I get it, they are a private business and they can set whatever policies they want. All I am saying is that I didn't expect it from them.

YZH stocks are evidently the exact same as LMT and sell for $20.
I would not pay $200 dollars for a polymer stock made from $2 worth of materials anyway, sort of crazy when you think about it.
The military orders their SOPMOD stocks from Xenia Ohio now and pay $12 a stock rather than ordering from LMT.

http://www.ct.gov/despp/lib/despp/slfu/firearms/assault_weapons.pdf Paragraph 3.

Now, I don't know if you bought a whole rifle or did you order several of the parts together, but the company may be trying to cover itself by not shipping to you any particular set of items. I don't have time to look up the definition of constructive possession, but my guess of what their thought process is, is on the act of facilitating constructive possession. Then again, what do I know

I have to agree. It's unfortunate for all parties involved but untimately if LaRue could be held responsible I can't blaim them.

I respect mark's refusal to sell a potentially questionable item to a ban state.

The 10.00 of profit he makes could cost him his ffl, his freedom and hundreds of thousands of $$$ in legal fees!

Frankly, I would not sell anything to a ban state. Move to a free state or change the law. I know, that's a bad attitude, but mark has contributed a lot of money to California to get the laws changed there so he is trying.

Well said Sean. You're my Attorney and we've talked about this before. If it ever "hits the fan", I'm glad you're on my side!

I feel for those that live in "Ban States", but YOUR Laws are something YOU have to deal with ... or move. Simple as that - really it is.

Simple solution ... order the stocks elsewhere. Hell you could probably order it from a vendor in your own state and have it by the very next day.
