Would you buy a shoulder stock for your pistole?

Lets say, you could get a shoulder stock for your pistol that was around $100 price tag and was legal to own and use with your pistol without having to SBR it and pay the tax stamp.

Would you get one? For hunting? Just for accuracy and plinking, maybe?

I have yearned for one on a classic for years and while I can't say whether or not I had any experience with one years ago on modern pistol I can say that I am convinced that, theoretically, they are a great aid if they are properly designed.

No. Unless it was a full auto machine pistol. (MAC, G18, 93r) I would much rather a pistol caliber carbine. IMOYMMVMTFBWY

Thanks for the replies. I would appeiciate more opinions. Remember, no tax stamp. No SBR. Just a stock you could use on your Glock.

Wow! That is awesome, I would love one like that. I'm sure it's out of my price range, but what did you pay?

They work wonders!

Saw an episode of "The Rifleman" a few weeks back. Lucas McCain was pinned down, his foe had his rifle. All McCain had was a revolver, and could not hit his foe.

He saw a piece of board tha bhad a hole in it just large enough for the handle of the revolver. He stck the handle in the hole. Then he found a stick which he put in another hole for the rear sight. He put this contraption to his shoulder and hit his foe on the next shot.

What MORE proof do you need about the effectiveness of a shoulder stock?????

Had a friend who had a Browning HiPower model fitted for a shoulder stock..he had the pistol and was looking for the stock, when he sold the pistol. HAD a friend because he sold the HiPower without offering it to me first.....

The rifleman without his rifle? He shoots his rifle from his hip. So when he dose not have his rifle( that he shoots from his hip) he make a rifle out of a pistol and shoots from his shoulder?

Or instead of buying another gun, just buy a stock to play with on your pistol.

In the C96's case...the stock serves as a holder for the weapon in a holster arrangement for field use.

What I paid for it is really irrelevent to it's current worth now but...if memory serves me...this combo set me back about $1600 when I bought it from a collector friend some years back.

This 1916 example has some rare police markings and came with the documentation supporting that this rig was brought back to the US by a returning GI (his name and address included) in November of '45. There is also a document from the ATF dated in 1969 that this pistol/stock is legal and in accordance with the Gun Control Act of 1968.

While I don't shoot it...a good working, original example of a Red Nine was always one of my lifetime "dream" weapons and as such is naturally a favorite in my collection.

The early shoulder stocked Mausers and Lugers were a "system" much like the PDW concept being developed today. Interesting if somewhat limited in application. A sort of "They are very useful for the person who has a use for them" kind of thing.

The real general application was in the things like the "H&R Handi-rifle" and many of our gun makers, including S&W had models out that did the same thing before the horrid NFA. A single shot pistol, especially a .22 capable of doubling it's effective range with the attachment of a shoulder stock, was a wonderful idea in more "civilized" times. I don't particularly see it as boon to CCW but even in the 60's the idea was bandied about for LEOs in the face of the impending insurrection that was feared at the time.

To add to that post. in the 1970's two "innovations" appeared in the market. "rest" of sorts that resembled a small pistol rest with a shoulder stock. It was billed as being "legal since the gun was not mechanically attached to it" it had a "back rest" that you gripped nd held the gun against.

Another was a wrist brace like a bowlers brace with socket in it. The shooter carried , basically, a buttplate with a rod attached that had a ball on the end that fit the socket in the wrist brace.

As you can tell, neither idea rose to great success.
