Leapers UTG Compact Fixed Stock

Scored one on eBay cheap, planning to put it on a 300 Blackout rifle that's in the works.

But it arrived a week before the rest of the goodies did, so I put it on the back end of a new, unmilled 80% lower, to stay in the good graces of The Man, and slipped on a recently built 6.5" pistol upper.

Gotta say that I'm kinda diggin' it...

Nice. Did you have the barrel custom made, I think I've only found one less than 7.5 or 8" online.

Good thing about thee stock is that it is complete with the tube and buffer. Very nicely made. You might hesitate to buttstroke an ANTIFA with a collapsible M4 stock... but with this Leapers compact you can lay into the task with both gusto and confidence

I hate to be that guy...

If you're not an 07/SOT, the 80% lower being completed might seem like it is a loophole for the "manufactured as a pistol" and "manufactured as a rifle" shenanigans of the BATF library and ancient papaya scrolls and shit. However, whether you had to fill out a 4473 to purchase the lower as a firearm or if you rendered an incomplete block of aluminum through your own tooling, the end result is that you have one of the following;

- AR Pistol - no fixed or folding/collapsing/telescoping buttstock. Can be outfitted with a "brace" if that's what the part was made to be, and the brace can be shouldered, but the pistol cannot have a stock.

- AR Pattern Rifle - Any gas system length, caliber etc, with a 16" barrel allowing for all the parts used and available for use with a rifle.

- Short Barreled Rifle (SBR) - The lower receiver assembled as a rifle lower, with the desired barrel length, once the BATF ransom has been paid and your NFA stamp has been returned. Until you have the stamp with the new S/N that now has to be engraved, it would really ruin your day or week to think you're all on the up and up until someone jams you up for having an illegal SBR.

None of this is to say anything as if you aren't aware, or intended as disrespect in the event that you're all square bears with the legal side. Just trying to make it a little easier for the casual onlookers if there's any confusion about being able to put a pistol upper on a rifle lower and be immune to obnoxious government shenanigans.

Good point., and thanks for watching out.

If you'll zoom in on the picture, you'll note that there is no weapon laying there; it's a fully operable upper put onto a non-functional hunk of anodized aluminum that has a couple of parts stuck on it..

Its a dummy that looks like a gun, just to check out relative dimensions, etc. To see how it looks. But this is in no way "a gun"

All of my short barrel uppers go only on Pistol Only lowers having only a receiver extension, no stock. I make all of them myself. Rifle length uppers go on stocked rifle-only lowers.

Certainly no scofflaw here; I'm too old and tired to fool around with nonsense.

Hawkdrver, to build a gun similar to the dummy you'd need to SBR it.

I'm just about to fire off the form 1 actually, appreciate the heads up though.

I don't suppose they are turning them around any quicker than form 4s at the moment.

Noooo, those are a multi-purpose design. Primarily they're designed for pushing down one single strand of C-Wire, I guess in a conventional attack on some fortified target that learned about perimeter defense from building goat pens.

They also have the added benefit of acting like a funnel when someone unfamiliar with moving and shooting takes a mean digger. More dirt in the muzzle is like a silencer, yo!

And for no additional cost, they'll also tear the shit out of the back seats in a Camry or some gay Subaru.

If they weren't designed for these things, then I have yet to see someone use one correctly.

These work well to 'encourage' crowds to stop invading your personal space...

Worked really well when we were swamped a couple of times in OIF 1.

So the .300 Blackout is done, but for a muzzle device of some description. The Leapers stock really shortened things up; stock weld is absolutely with your nose on the charging handle. The Yankee Hill front sight cowitnesses through the MRO like they were made for eachother. Blackhawk latchless charging handle is pretty sweet and fast. Magpul slimline handgrip is tight, quiet and comfortable with no unnecessary rails all over the place. 16" 1:8 heavy barrel.

Had a query about the handguard and sight with relation to a 10.5" barrel.

So the YHM front site mounts directly on the barrel?

Yes, like the triangular USGI front sight, this YHM sight has two points of contact with the barrel, but instead of pins it uses four allen-headed machine screws to tighten down with.
