Found it
« on: March 18, 2017, 08:43:12 AM »

Finally found it which no one was able to help with. The palm swell grip, its still a grip to hold the rifle. They say "Any grip" in the laws and the laws do not exclude the palm swell, though seems Connecticut is saying its not in these questions asked.

11. Q: I have a rifle which is a semi-automatic center fire and has a curved portion of the stock directly behind the trigger guard which extends very slightly below it. It has none of the other banned features. Is this stock considered a pistol grip which would require me to register it as an assault weapon?
 
A: No. The type of stock you are describing is considered a “palm swell” and not a pistol grip. However, if the stock has a thumb hole, it qualifies as an assault weapon and must be registered by January 1, 2014.

So if someone could make an AR that's  not a copy or type, use Stags new stock. Maybe legal

Change trigger setup, I dunno. There has to be something you can change so it's not an AR copy

If one reads the various discussions (or searched for "curved portion") on the Ares SCR (and at least one other thread) they'd see that the issue of the "palm swell" and link to the SLFU FAQ's question 11 has been posted and discussed in the past...  :wink:

Potentially, a government is the most dangerous threat to man's rights: it holds a legal monopoly on the use of physical force against legally disarmed victims.

Yep, it has been. I'm the one who always questions. Not meaning to start arguments, just shooting off questions and trying to understand these, hopefully to be removed, illegal and in Constitutional laws.
