Actually, i'm pretty sure that you can only have 1 of the features that makes an AR an "assault weapon."

So you have the pistol grip on your AR?

Good, because that is all you can have.

you can get a permanently attached muzzlebreak, fixed stock, though. Not collapsible, nor a removable flash hider.

Doesnt leave much to make the rifle unique. Guess I'll buy a monkey as an ammo feeder bet no one has one of those and no way thats illegal......yet.

I never saw the benefit of a collapsible stock on a civilian weapon. IMO they look ugly and throw-off the balance also. If you're clearing buildings or involved in CQB drills that's a different story - but for hunting and target shooting they make absolutely no sense.

No, you can have two "evil" features in New York State. The pistol grip and detachable magazine are the two you typically have on an AR-15 in NYS.

A muzzle break (not a flash hider) must be silver-soldered to 1500 degrees (I think) and pinned. Stocks must be fixed (not collapsible or folding). Flash hiders are illegal in NYS unless (maybe?) they're on a pre-ban rifle.

For comfort and handling basically. I dont want to be limited with a standard stock. Plus I'm not that big of a man.

Two guys I work with both have 16" ARs with a collapsible stocks and I don't like them that much. The shortest 2 or 3 spots are too short, and the longest 1 or 2 are too long. One of the two guys is 6'3", the other is around 5'9" or so, and they both use the same spot. I've got just the plain jane A2 stock on mine and like. Just my .02.

It allows me to collapse my AR and carry it in a guitar case.

Not only size though; people shoot differently. For example shooting in prone would be alot easier if you could adjust the stock.

I'm only 5'10 and the A2 fits me fine. In fact it's actually shorter than my classic bolt gun stocks.
