I know that you can shoot a 1921 and 1928 with out stock, but is the same for a M1? I removed the stock for cleaning and thought it would be fun to shoot the gun that way.


Thanks for the info

As the TSMG recoil is relatively low, for some really expensive fun you can shoot one without a stock in each hand. Gotta watch the brass from the one in your left hand though.

Just a note for the semi boys on that idea. When you remove the stock from a 16" barrell semi the gun now measures 29 5/8" OAL. In MI your rifle has to be a minimum of 30" OAL to be legally owned and used. If your rifle falls between 30" and 26" OAL it must be registered as a pistol and is treated as one in regards to carry and fireing. You must carry your green card with it. I'm going through that process now after PK redid my A1. On the bright side you can pull the stock put in a L drum sling it under your coat (if you have a cpl) and go up to the local 7/11 on sunday afternoon to get some milk for dinner.
