Subject: Question about legality of Magpul PRS rifle stocks in New
Hello, I have a question about the New Jersey Assault Weapons Ban. As
you probably know, the federal ban expired in 1994, but certain states
have their own AWB that did not expire. New Jersey's is similar to the
federal ban in regards to flash hider, collapsible or telescoping
stocks, bayonet lugs, etc on semiautomatic weapons. My question is in
regards to a stock for AR-15 type rifles, known as the Magpul PRS. As
quoted from Magpul's website, the stock is adjustable for length of
pull. "Compared to the A2 stock, the PRS can shorten the LOP by
or extend it by 0.75"."
(http://www.magpul.com/catalog/index.php ... o&cPath=70
Does this constitute a collapsible or telescoping stock? It is my
understanding that the Magpul PRS is designed to be adjustable only for
shooter comfort, not for concealment purposes. The only part of the
stock that is adjustable is the butt pad (which will only adjust 1''),
whereas the main body of the stock is fixed and does not move.
Thank you for your time

Thank you for contacting the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and
Explosives. The stock in question is a collapsible stock.
