6, not sure if your last post was directed towards me or not. If so, I don't think that it would be affected by an ATF ruling if being used for carrying comfort and did not change the guns functional usage. I wonder about putting one in the end of the buttstock. That would ensure that it was not going to be shouldered as well.

Nope, my comment was in response to drtlfe's comment that "..I would be careful cutting down a stock without something in writing.... "
Even though it may take 2-3 months, I would recommend sending the stock to ATF and getting a lletter.

If the stock is approved, I can't see how any sling attachment would matter, but you could send it with the sling attachment in place. I would be hesitant to send it in with anything that could be easily detached and, possibly, lost.

Thanks. That notwithstanding, in theory or opinion where would be the best place to add the swivel.

I confess I don't use a single point sling, so I'll leave that answer to more knowledgeable people.
However, I will say I find the Mare's Leg shoots best for me with a cheek weld on the stubby butt stock. A sling which allows that cheek weld with the sling tight might be an aid to accuracy.

I have used a sling quite a bit on an axiom Blackhawk stock and a sling. In that you push away. I was thinking of putting a flush mounted push button swivel in an end. I think that a regular screw stud in the end if I ever decide to go through. I really think that would help prove no plan for shoulder usage.

Looks like fun, but it is NOT a Mare's Leg.
It's a whippit.

The question would arise with an after-market receiver. You would have to have proof that it was sold as a handgun. Handgun sales have different restrictions than rifle or shotgun sales. You must be over 21 and I really don't remember what else.
Not true. Receivers are sold as an "other, receiver." As long as it's not built as a rifle first it can be a built as a pistol. Some state laws vary, but in a nutshell that's the federal law.

You must be 21 to purchase a pistol but can be 18 to own one. Pretty rudimentary stuff.

You don't have to prove squat...unless committing a crime with your gun, in general, nobody cares.

You could also by a 80% Ruger 10/22 receiver, finish it and build whatever you want....no S/N no problems....TacticalMachining.com sells them and the jig to do finish machining....

Thanks

I have been playing with some old stocks I had. Trying to blend and sand with different stains to look old. They are ok I guess. I am definitely not a professional... If these were ever mounted in a charger, the long one would have an LOP of about 7" and the short one about 6.25" LOP. Both would obviously have pistol grips and not rifle buttstocks and would have a shorter LOP than most commercially available mare's legs. I found only one commercially made mare's leg that was shorter than 7" which comes in about 6.75".

Doubt it'll make much difference, but I'll repeat- Not a Mare's Leg.
The Mare's Leg initiated as a cutback levergun & that's its traditional form & usage.

If you look up what Clyde Barrow did with BARS, you'll see a cutback semi-auto is infinitely more of a whippet than a Mare's Leg.

The term Mare's Leg is not generic for any rifle shortened at both ends.

Yeah, I know- but such things bug me as much as the Clip/Magazine thing does others.

Which is not to throw cold water on the concept, you even have me considering it on the Charger here.

I thought a whippet was a cut down shotgun (notoriously the Remington 11).

Actually, my short one is a modified birdshead pistol grip if we were going to get serious as a birdshead gripv was my inspiration.
