handgun mounted to ar15...
 
Hey...I was wondering, if I mount a handgun to the bottom rail of my ar, will thatt make it a class three weapon?

Never heard of that? Why would you want that? Not sure of the legality of it if was possible, but I'm sure with this communist government they wouldn't let that happen.

The handgun would have to have a weird way of kicking out the empties, but that would be one veeery comfortable vertical grip, so long as it wasn't a glock.

I think the only way that's possible would be with a hammer less revolver a sa you would have to worry about putting the slide out of battery, how would the slide move and empty rounds

Something like this?

Watch the video. :)

That thing is neat but you would need a second set of sights zeroed to it and its only a 22lr which can be lethal at close ranges but its still just a 22. Personally I'd say just get a normal front grip and carry a secondary gun of a larger caliber like a .40 sw and a bug if you feel the need but that's just me

To answer the question---yes, it would make the pistol a SBR. I know, weird, but what
you are doing is attaching a buttstock to a pistol. In a strange way--but it's still a
buttstock.

Yep, attaching a buttstock on a pistol would require registering the pistol as an SBR. Don't know why someone would want a handgun caliber on a weapon they already fired more effective rifle ammo.

Possibly, if you attached it in a holster that prevented operation of the handgun, just to have your sidearm immediately handy in the event if running out of ammo or malfunction.

Well...my main purpose for the idea is for large hog hunting...I thought having a .40 sw or a 45 attatched to the bottom rail for quick close range shots for unexpected chargers, would be a good idea...I'm in illinois and we are the bastard child of the gun laws...

Too bad on sillinoise. :( They don't allow rifles on hogs, right? An SKS comes with a built-in backup, that spikey bayonet.

Maybe a .357 in a chest holster?
