Hypothetically speaking- if the ban were to sunset. Are we able to remove the pins from post-ban tele-stocks to make them functional, my question is not as to the legality but are the look alike telestocks actually functional if the pins are removed?

I can only speak of the Colt fixed telestock that I recently removed from my new M4 carbine: No, it cannot be made to retract even if the pins are removed. It lacks the mechanism to move, and there is a buffer tube extension that goes all the way to the end. Visualize a long buffer tube with the shell of a retractable stock bolted directly through it and you'll get the idea.

you'd have to get a new one, and toss the old one away. New telestocks only cost about 70 bucks anyway though. What i strongly suggest you should do is ditch what you have RIGHT NOW. I sold my post ban fixed stock on ebay for $80, and bought an ACE ARFX-E stock. Reason is that if (and hopefully) the ban expires, that stock won't sell for a penny. Replace it with something you can still sell in case thing turn out good for us. IMHO

Precisely the reason I went with a 20" A3 with A2 buttstock. The only thing i need to do to make it "correct" is add a threaded barrel with bayonet lug.

I don't think the WHEN is necessary pulpsmack, is it? The real sentence is ...that if the ban expires... The portion within the parenthesis is an additional comment not part of the real sentence. hehehe Grammar Police strikes again! [;)]
