Which is why, as posted above, the “Shockwave” guns are sold with that birdhead grip. That grip puts the OAL over the 26” min. A standard pistol grip makes the gun too short and would be categorized as a AOW, with a $200 tax to manufacture, a form 4 to transfer and all the waiting for your stamp to come back.

WITH the birdshead grip, cash and carry just like any handgun.
Just add the birds head grip to the cruiser......Problem solved.

No need. The Crusier guns are sold with 18.5” barrels and already come in over 26”OAL. THE “Shockwave”guns come with 14” barrels and need the extra length of the birdshead to make OAL

The Ruby Ridge show is still on Netflix IIRC. I have watched it a couple of times. It is told by Randy Weavers daughter. And it may be on Youtube if not. Another good and related show is the Oklahoma City Bombing and the story of Tim McVeigh.
