Mech-Tech CCU
#1
Honestly, this could go in "pistols" or "rifles"... you be the judge.

Came across an ad/product mention in a magazine and was intrigued. Take a look at the website below. This is something for all Glock and 1911 owners' wish lists:

If you ever wanted a pistol caliber carbine, this might just be the way to go...

I've seen similar products before, but not this specific brand.
The "basic unit" seems cool, but then they list all of the things you can add on... like a rear stock and vertical foregrip. Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't this make it an AOW? If so then the price of the basic Glock @ $349.95 + a $200 tax stamp? For $550 I could buy a super-overpriced keltec sub2000 that takes Glock mags and still have my Glock on my hip.
My guns have killed less people than Obama's ATF has.

From their FAQ:

Do I need an FFL (Federal Firearms License) to purchase this product?

No. The CCU is not a firearm and will not fire without a pistol lower in place. The CCU is simply an accessory such as a scope or grips. For State and local laws you are advised to become aware of them relative to where you live. As far as Mech-Tech is aware, the CCU in and of itself is legal in all States. We do know that in the case of California the combination of the CCU and a pistol lower becomes illegal under current law. If and when Mech-Tech becomes aware of any other special circumstances such as California, we will publish this information. Again, the customer has the responsibility to determine the legality of the combination in their circumstance.

I saw that, but I wasn't sure it applied to the advanced kit. So since the barrel is 16"+ it's not considered an SBR or an AOW?

guess not... it's just like the KelTec Sub 2K, only you supply the lower which is the "firearm" of the setup. It's a neat idea, but not very cost effective.
