The stock comes off completely, and appears it can be fired without it.

Why's that legal and say, a Vector Uzi with a quick detach stock, isn't?

My understanding is that the law asks that a weapon be at least the minimum length of 26 1/2 inches. The ban never mentions a removable stock, only folding or telescoping.
The pistol you mentioned is illegal with a stock simply because it is technically considered a pistol. Also, the Uzi is specifically mentioned in the AWB of 1994.

A vector Uzi isn't a pistol, it's a rifle, with as many evil features as the OA-93.

Figure it's that minimum length thing you were talking about. The Uzi is well below that with the stock off.

I bet Oly sells exactly 0 of these.



Are you serious? Zero?
I bet they do sell some.
The only negative is the high price for a curiousity.
But it is cool looking.
Like an MP40, with that front grip looking like the MP40 magazine, sorta.

So, it some how their fault the government screwed us.
They came out with a requested and most likely profitable product.
It is the tyrannical .gov we should voice our anger towards.
I'm not a fan of Olympic by any means, simply have not been able to trust them to function more than 75% of the time.
I understand how the law against the armor piercing ammo for pistols law also sucks. I shoot steel gongs and sparks are nice.
Whose fault is the ammo law, I'm guessing it is not a weapon manufacturer.
