    Anyone consider the photo they used of the SBR they sell that was posted as the new firearm is just that And not what the new one looks like kind of like automakers cloaking the new models so they are not copied before production.

    I don't think anyone should be guessing it will come with a standard binary trigger or that some kind of hint can be gained from them photoshopping the rail.

    They did not use a real photo of it because they know it would be put under the microscope.

    It would appear to be a correct statement

    Texas, ya'll
    Using that definition, then if I take a AR-15 lower that was sold as neither a rifle nor a handgun lower and put a short barrel on it then Texas would not have a problem with it. Of course, the Feds would.

    Texas has let some strange things get in some of their laws. That's part of the problem with having lawyers and politicians write laws instead of having them written by engineers. The politicians and lawyers don't pay attention to the boundary conditions whereas we engineers, we live for the boundary conditions. :)

    Texas has a law against what they call "zip guns". But, their definition of a zip gun is vague enough that it would prevent anyone from trying to design and build a new firearm, much less any of the hobbyist machinists from building their own firearm, even from raw metal stock. The feds don't have any sort of law against "zip guns", so why does Texas have even more restrictive laws than them?

    With all the pistol braces especially the ones that collapse, I am suprised they even bothered going this route intead of desiging another brace for pistols and marketing that.

    Yep... Just look at all the free publicity that they've gotten by just the *hint* of this thing...
