How does Missouri measure the Over All Length of a rifle with a folding stock? Folded or extended?
The statutes don't specify: Sec 571-010
(17) "Short barrel", a barrel length of less than sixteen inches for a rifle and eighteen inches for a shotgun, both measured from the face of the bolt or standing breech, or an overall rifle or shotgun length of less than twenty-six inches;
The ATF has issued letters saying that the minimum can be met with the stock fully extended. I don't know if MO has issued an opinion.
Few 16" guns will be less than 26" with the stock folded. If your barrel is less than 16" and you have an NFA item, the minimum obviously doesn't apply.
i don't know about folding but I know if you have a collapsible stock you have to "pin" it to a position of at least min length in certain areas.
Separate names with a comma.
