yea i am well aware you cannot put a folding stock on the vast majority of AR-15s

im looking for a folding stock that uses an ar-15 mount for use on my 22lr
it would be awesome if it was collapsible AND foldable

i know ace makes some but are there any other companies?

Isnt that one of those things you just need a tax stamp for?

I don't think essentially turning a long barreled rifle (16"+) into what could be considered a pistol (folding stock) would require a stamp. I certainly may be mistaken though.
there is a spec for overall length as well.......

No, you do not need a tax stamp nor would it help you.

What you need to put a folding stock on a standard AR is a different way to manage cycling the bolt other than with a buffer tube/buffer/spring.

Minimum rifle length is 26" with stock collapsed/folded.
Measure in it's shortest configuration not extended.


As for the OP's original question.
Here is a folder, Stock - AGP Side Folding Stock Complete Kit [SAK0401] - $132.00 : Spikes Tactical
Here is a collapsible folder, (ARRB-M4M-FS) Ace AR15/Sig 556 M4M Folding Stock Set
That is state law, not federal law. ATF measures the length unfolded and/or extended.

Think I'm kidding? then how can keltec sell their SU16C? length folded is 25.5", listed right on their website.

Kel Tec CNC

Here's an excerpt from a letter from the ATF that was posted on THR in 2008:
As background, 27 CFR Sec. 479.11 (Meaning of Terms) states, in part:

The overall length of a weapon made from a shotgun or rifle is the distance between the extreme ends of the weapon measured along a line parallel to the center line of the bore.

Based on this description of overall length and its correct measurement, ATF has taken the position that firearms having folding or collapsible stocks are properly measured for overall length with the stock fully extended.

22LR AR's don't need a buffer tube, spring or buffer.

That's why they can use folding stocks.

And has nothing to do with tax stamps
