I went the Copper Custom route, and luckily using an extra stock I found on Ebay. Given the law changes, I'm glad I have the original stock for shooting at the range, easy to swap out. (NOT intended for legal advise. KNOW the most recent BATFE changes.) Better safe than sorry.

this is good reading on the issue of the fore grip discussed earlier and the impact of over all length measurements.

Personally I have rifles and I have pistols and have never felt a need to have something in the grey area.

You run into interesting questions like is long Mag on a Charger really a Mag or could it be used as fore grip? I have seen people use it as a fore grip.

When I did the CC build it was legal, (more than likely a Grandfather Clause not included), given my options, I can go back to stock, non impactful. Copper Custom must be confused too, as they still sell them. Regarding using an extended Mag as a grip, a good way to screw up your feed. The Bi-Pod folded back makes an ideal fore grip. Just keep the gun legal, and safe shooting.

Just as the brace is a brace and not a stock, the magazine is a magazine. Just because some people use the brace as a stock doesn't mean it's a stock. If someone grips the magazine it's still a magazine. People grip the mag and mag well on their AR pistols all the time.

"Ruger has made it easy for those looking to add a brace to one of their 22 Charger pistols, by including a rear-mounted rail. " Official entry by their very words, not sure what the Rail Mount means ??? Other than a quick release system tube or composite set up.....
