My local dealer has a like new Butler Creek folder that I would love on my Mini. The only problem I have is the fact that My stainless Mini is a post ban. Is it leagal to "pin" this stock in the open position? I know Butler Creek sells them welded open for post bans. I don't want to weld it if I can help it, I would prefer to put some type of set screw in it. We looked at the top and we both believe it would be possible to drill and tap a hole from the top into the folding arm. This would lock it, but would it qualify as a non-folder? Oh, the reason I don't want to weld it is that I might be able to talk my dad out of his rally nice pre-ban in the future. Thanks!:2guns:

Hi Doc, I don't think you bama boys have as much to worry about as some of the other more liberalized states. If it were me in your shoes, besides the set screw, I would epoxy or jb weld the set screw, then paint it. Where for the future if you get the preban, you could drill it out, but for the now time, it could not be folded, and looks like it can't be folded, you would be in the clear. Course it is my personal opinion only. I don't like to lie, therefore if someone ask ya if your stock is welded you can truthfully answer yes. (eventhough its JB Weld). Now if you do this you have one allowed evil (pistol grip stock). You can't have any other evils, or you will be the holder of an evil assualt weapon.

I have a pre ban 186xxx and from time to time think I'd like to convert to folder. My question "is it legal'? The reason I ask is that I've read somewhere that folding stocks are sold only as a replacement of existing pre ban equipped gun.
Am I way off base here, your interpretations will be appreciated!

Thanks, Cajungeo! Jb weld may just be the trick. Like you said, more than likely I wouldn't have trouble here, but you never know. I plan on either puting the stock on the rifle or getting a Houge over mold and putting a nice brake on it. I want to dress it up, but haven't made my mind up as to what I really want yet. A nice houge with a brake and scope would be nice, but I kinda lean toward the peep sight as I have several other rifles that are scoped. Again, thanks.:2guns:

lcm- you can't legally do what you are thinking...think of it this way, was your gun in an 'assault" weapon configuration, by definition, before the ban, i.e. with evil features? If the answer is yes then you can put the folding stock on it. If the answer is no, then you can't, because you are in essence "creating" an assault weapon by now having three evil features- detachable magazine, pistol grip, and folding stock.

ICM, if you are the owner of the gun since before the ban there is no paper trail. Let your concience be your guide.
