That's legal if you already own it, it meets minimum overall rifle length, and you plan to register it.

The pistol grip will be the one "feature" that would classify it as an AW.

It's perfectly legal as long as it meets OAL requirement of 26".

With that being said why not put a collapsible stock on it. Just as short collapsed, much more comfortable and adjustable.

Franklin Armory offers a product like what you're describing, the XO-26. Somewhere in between a pistol and a rifle, but legally (at least federally) it's neither rifle nor pistol. I have no idea how this would play in New York State.

Linky to the XO-26: PRODUCTS

I've messed around with AR pistols. Concerning the FA XO-26, you're losing a lot of ability to handle recoil in exchange for a shortened barrel. A 5.56 rifle recoils more than you might think when you suddenly don't have your shoulder to brace it on.

Wanted something that looks cool,and a spray and pray comando style gun.Hold it at waist level and let it rip so no worries about the kick.I just ordered 2 of these from midway and hope they slide over a 4 psition colapsable stock tube.

ACE Replacement Foam Overtube ACE ARFXE-ARULE Buttstock

If not I found info on plasti dipping them as well,will try that if it fails.And if the registration law isnt repealed I will be part way legal to getting one of those hammerhead stock kits.

Foam won't fit over a carbine tube. Mine was super tight to get onto a rifle tube without the boss that's beneath a carbine tube.
