Has anybody noticed how cool the Nordic AR22 stock looks with no stock on and a short barrel?

I have a question for you SBR guys.
What kind of accuracy are you getting at a 20-70 yd. range??
I have a ruger 22" SS
I would love to throw my 18" back on but the accuracy on it blows, plus I busted it up. Don't want to chance back fires.

Also how short can it be w/o applying for paperwork and all that??

I dont live in the USA, but I'm preety sure that the rule is 16.5"min length until you have to get the ATF stamp and such. Thats what I've picked up on here aswell as other forums I frequent.

Hope this helps.

dont know about the USA but here we can have 12" barrel, and I beleive that the overall length has to exceed 24" to be a rifle, less than that and this one one be a long barrel pistol, we can have them, cut down buckmarks with a rear extension etc, but its different space on our tickets

accuracy is sacrificed in anything thats been shortened these are for up close stuff like shooting snakes or "room clearing" for the tactical guys lol (no offence i love that stuff too) or even just for having the bragging rights of owning an SBR as for legal length its 16.5 inches on the barrel and 24 inches overall anything smaller than that barrel and you need a stamp from the ATF to own it as an SBR (short barreled rifle) and anything shorter than the overall length gets a stamp as an AOW (any other weapon)

if your going for shear accuracy then stick with a longer barrel i have a 20 on my ruger and its a world of difference from the 18 that was on it and my mom has the youth model with the 16.5 and it was worse yet we ended up useing my old 18 on hers just to make it worth shooting beyond 30 yards

sorry but have to dissagree wholeheartedly, if you ever get the chance, try out a 12.5" VQ barrel like mine, extremely accurate I have only ever had better results with a kid barrel, in my experience it has outshot whistle pig and tacsol barrels of 16-18" length

The rifle barrel can be 16" or longer But some people do 16.5 to be safe.

The ATF puts a rod down the barrel till it contacts the closed boltface and measures.

I believe it is 26" in length for a stocked gun but folders for some reason don't count so you could have a folder that is less than that. Unless you live in a ban state where they have outlawed folding stocks.

Not 100% accurate. A folding stock is measured by the BATF in it's open or extended position. 26" Over All Length. States can have different laws concerning this.

right that is what I was trying to say I just didn't get it out there right.

Take2:

Your rifle could be shorter than 26" with the stock folded. My uncle had a nifty mini 14 like this with the folding stock, basically a mini 14 pistol. ATF measure with the stock unfolded so it was legal because it unfolded longer than 26". Unless there is state law which outlaw folders. Such as NY has now.

So, unfolded...
can't be shorter than 26" total.
Barrel has to be longer than 16"

Now, what about telescoping stocks, like m4 style??? (tapco)
Haven't measured it, but I guess it's totally possibly that you couldn't be under regulation with a tapco, so long as your barrel was the correct length.
