    And no, I'm not going to write a letter and ask them.

    Where's LawDog?

    Yeah I don't see the issue for the folder as long as it wasn't intended to be a shoulder stock by adding shite to extend the length of pull by some moron manufacturer. But then I'm not a lawyer and don't play one on the interweb.

    So you literally want to ask for permission in a thread who's over arching theme is STOP ASKING FOR PERMISSION?

    A very long time ago Gabe coined a term for a certain type of student. It was OG and stood for Original Grasshopper.

    Gabe can tell that whole story but let’s just say he and his cabal got banned.

    Maybe we need a nrw new term for those who wish to ask the nanny state for permission for everything.

    ON = Original Nanny


    I am sure the tribe can come up with a few ideas.
    I carry two kinds of trauma kits. One for fixing it and one for causing it.

    I don’t recall asking anyone’s permission for anything.
    If you read what I posted, you’ll see that I was agreeing with you that this thread is likely much ado about nothing for us based on the wording of the letter.

    I did mention being interested in LawDog’s opinion but mostly because I thought his take on the letter would be more interesting than the posts of legally-illiterate folks bashing sheeple-brained Fudds and getting into a froth about something that apparently has nothing to do with the SI folding brace or with sheeple-brained Funds contacting the ATF.

    This is what happens when people act like Boy Scouts. Only options are to put the shockwave PG on again, add a longer barrel, or change to the non-folding unit we sell. There may be an option to modify the folder to remain open with a drill and a welding rod, but I am not sure.

    As a side note...every single AK built by Fuller and Century and others with a folding stock is 25 1/2" long with the stock folded.
    I think the difference is that those AKs are pistols and the overall length does not matter.

    The shotguns, or shotguns that are called firearms, are different in that they can never be pistols.

    But then again, in ATF's Disneyland any thing is possible.

    No, these are standard AK carbines that people are talking about. It depends on the tang and also if the flash hider is welded on or not. I know my MAK90 is very close to 26 inches without the flash hider on it. But it could be a quarter inch short. underfolders with the tang cut off and folded will be shorter. Weld on the flash hider and mine should be longer than 26 inches.

    So, you’re still shipping your Tac-14 folding brace systems, right?
