    OAL on an AR15?

    Just wondering if the OAL is taken with a collapsible stock fully extended or fully retracted, as the 3 firearms officers I've asked have given me different answers.

    Cheers

    I'm 99% sure they've stated that they measure with the stock fully extended. I've got a folding stock ACR which is fully functional and well under 762mm when the stock is folded and it is legal.

    I'm not 100% sure, but if it can be fired when collapsed & its under 762mm its a pistol .... ?

    Ah that would make sense as Gunshitty has been selling Scars and ACRs under Ecat with folding stocks, I was just wondering if side folding was under some silly exception

    Should probably not raise that to objection so they don't reclassify side folders :p

    Police hq has said that for e cat(not a cat) stuff they consider it with the stock extended/unfolded

    I have a few that have been inspected a few times that if folded/collapsed would be under length.

    fully extended, to the tip of the barrel,
    muzzle devices don't count as added length

    From memory the latest interpretation is that something on E cannot be on B, so the collapsed length doesn't matter as long as extended is over 762mm.
