Just received a local flyer for an LGS advertising 12.5” and 11.5” ar type “weapon” for sale. They show them with ar pistol style braces instead of a stock, and flash hiders are now ok in this configuration. Does not seem to qualify as a rifle or a pistol, similar to the Mossberg Shockwave.
Has anyone else seen this setup in NJ? I feel like I am missing something here.
Yes they are currently legal in NJ and available in many gun shops. There was one change to the original approval, the muzzle device has to be pinned and welded.
Similar situation in CT.
Neither a rifle nor a pistol--classified as an "other" because of the brace.
After making some calls today and digging around the internet, it seems this is real. Not actually an SBR per say, but a work around that both the ATF and NJSP approve of.
While I am glad to see a few manufacturers find and exploit a loophole with our ridiculous laws, these things are stupid expensive in the current state of AR prices and availability.
At least us NJ folks can partake in a little SBRish fun now, if your willing to shell out what 2 standard ar’s cost.
