The BATFE has been known to change their minds about the legality of things plenty of times.

I have conversations with agents, and there is some discussion about all of the braced pistols, and their legality.

It's my impression that right after they move on 'firearms' designed around Shotgun receivers, they are going to move their attention to braces.

I'm simply saying, don't build what you can't afford to take apart.

I'm not trying to predict the future.

I plan to stock my Charger, and SBR it, should that come to be, but some here may not have that option, depending on locality.
Its definitely something I take into to consideration.

The thing I would warn about.... I see quite a few people building their Chargers with pistol braces and RIFLE scopes. The only way you can use a rifle scope properly is to shoulder the firearm, thus proving you are intentionally changing the way the pistol brace was meant to be used and shouldering it was your intention all along! Completely against the statement ATF released about shouldering the brace!

I personally would stay away from rifle scopes and stick with Red dots or LER/Pistol scopes.

I'm not here for the dance but you do not need to "shoulder" a rifle scope to utilize it.

There is a reason people practice proper cheek weld and proper eye relief in order to use a "RIFLE" scope properly! We both know that the only way to use a "RIFLE" scope properly, is to get a tight consistent cheek weld and for the firearms butt stock to be placed firmly into the shoulder pocket. That way when you set the scopes position on your firearm you will always have the same view through the scope.

No other way, unless you are just trying to find a loop hole! And at that point, not worth the risk. Just use a RED DOT or EER scope.

Fascinating. Total rubbish, but fascinating. The exclamation points lead me to think that you might actually believe it.

the picture is not the greatest, but my Charger has a brace adapter, folding brace bracket, brace tube and brace. The trigger is a BX, a Volquartsen extractor and JWH charging handle. The muzzle device is from S&P and directs sound forward. For a short barrel it shoots amazingly accurate.

I refer to these as "Charger-length", since the only Ruger parts are their trigger guards.
