Charlie Cacao asked Is it physically possible to put a stock on an AR pistol?

What I am asking is would I physically be able to put a stock on an AR pistol that is meant for a regular 5.56 ar-15? From seeing the buffer tubes on the AR pistols it looks as if one would have to put on an ar-15 rifle buffer tube. Is it possible to simply screw an ar15 buffer tube onto an ar pistol lower reciever without modification to anything?

And got the following answer:

All you need is to get a buffer with the holes to put the stock. If its an ar pistol it would be considered a short barreled rifle if you put the stock on, thus you need a tax stamp.

5.0L V8 lover asked Is there an age restriction on buying an AR15 upper receiver?

Well the ATF states that the lower reciever is the firearm so wouldn’t that mean technically the upper receiver is only a part of a gun just like buying a firing pin or new barrel? I just wanna know of I can buy an upper if I’m not 18. Thanks!!!

And got the following answer:

The only part that is considered a firearm is the lower reciever (unless its a registered machine gun with the drop in autosear or lightning link, then the autosear and lightning link are considered firearms as well). No age limit for buying an upper.

Moy asked Is it a good idea to build an AR15 to save money?

Hi, I don’t have much experience in firearms, but I’m really interested in getting an AR15. Would it be cheaper to build one? How long would it take? Is it hard to buy all the parts? Is it hard to find a lower reciever right now? (online probably) since I don’t have a ton of firearms experience is it a bad idea? Also about how much would it cost to buy all the parts? And do I need any special tools? (.223)
Thanks!

And got the following answer:

For an experienced builder who knows exactly what he wants, yes.

For you, no.

But let me tell you why:

1) First off, in case you haven’t been paying attention, the Newtown shooting has caused a chain of events which has set off panic buying — finding whole rifles, OR parts kits has become…problematic.

2) Second, since you admit your experience with firearms is rather limited, you would not know a good parts kit from a “factory second”. And if you don’t know the difference between an in-spec part and an out-of-spec part, you may get partway through your build never understanding why things don’t go the way it says in the manual.

3) Third, building an inexpensive AR hinges on finding a decent lower receiver for a good price. Good luck with that in THIS political climate.

4) Even though building an AR is not particularly difficult, it is still not easy for a novice. I build them as a hobby, so I know of that which I speak. It is VERY easy to screw up the project, lose parts, or damage your receiver if you don’t know what you’re doing, which means replacing expensive components pretty much negates the cost-effectiveness of the build.

5) Finally, if you don’t know how the finished product is SUPPOSED to look and function, you have no idea if you’ve done it right or not — and with firearms, this is not a safe thing.

That all being said, a parts kit is going to be almost nonexistent, as hard to come by as the whole rifle itself. You do need a couple of special tools, and although I have done a build with nothing special in particular — it wasn’t my first build and it wasn’t pretty.

I take about two hours to build an AR-15 from parts, taking my time. I’ve done it in as little as 45 minutes, but I don’t really like working that fast because it’s easy to forget things if you’re not detail-oriented (which kinda takes the fun out of it for me, so I go slower because it’s a HOBBY).

Bottom line: I do NOT recommend you build your first AR. I recommend you BUY your first AR from a reputable manufacturer, and then, after thorough study of a properly-assembled rifle, you acquire the tools and the kit, and THEN try it yourself, with your already-assembled rifle as a functional template.

And of course, in this political climate, your “savings” from a build is pretty much nonexistent.

Sorry.
