I heard that those short stocks with extending butt plates don't count as retractable stocks because it takes a tool to move it. If I took an M4 stock, and screwed the release in place so that it could never be moved would it count as a fixed stock?

Interesting premise. My question's: 1. Is an "adjustable" length of pull stock considered a "collapsable"? Mcmillan, Ace, etc. 2. How far does it need to "adjust" to be considered "collapsable"?

No, because a screw can be taken out. In order to put a preban M4 stock on a postban you have to use a compound such as JB Weld, so that it will be permanently pinned in place. The ATF has responded to multiple forum members, including me, that this is legal so long as the rifle is longer than the legal limit.

Didn't we just have this conversation? Check back a day or two there is a thread with the arguements on conversion of a telescoping stock to a 'fixed stock'.

Weld it. Then no one can argue. Personally Id just buy a shorty A2 stock.
