[:\] I am thinking of getting a car-15 parts kit from m-a parts, want to get the preban, so I can have the collapsible stock. Here's the question: Can you pin the stock in any position? or does it have to be pinned open position only? Looked at ATF website and the only thing they mention is not to have a collapsible stock. So as long as it is above minumum length, it's OK, right?

Unless you've got a pre-ban lower you can't legally mount a collapsible stock. E-95

I want to know why they don't make the stocks pinned in different positions.That way you could choose what length you want.

Post-ban "CAR" stocks use standard, rifle length, receiver extensions and rifle buffer/ buffer springs.

From what I understand, you can pin the stock at any length, as long as it is not "EASILY" converted back into a collapsible stock. Thus, you would need to use a strong epoxy and blind pins to assure the stock could not be collapsed or extended with easy modification.

Just so you guys know, this exact topic has been debated over and over. The general consensus is that it can be blind pinned and epoxied at any length as long as it is not adjustable. However, no one knows if this would pass a BATF ruling. Probably depend on the agent in question and his/her interpretation of the law. I know that I have no intention of testing the theory. E-95
