Is this whats comeing?
It is a goofy-looking contraption, and a very odd way of adding a shoulder stock to a pistol.
It might appeal to the black gun segment of the market.
Looks like they are going for the "PIMP" bidness to me.
This is basically a polymer version with more tacticool styling of the mechtech conversion. The difference would be that the mechtechs all have a 16" barrel integral in the upper. This appears to be geared towards the person who has a Glock 17 or 19 or other hi-cap pistol already, and wants to play G.I. Joe dress-up accessorize with it.
I don't see a real need to bedazzle your Glock or Sig or whatever like this. For the cost of the host gun, then the kit you are knocking on the door of any number of other things that shoot rifle cartridges and have more range and shootability. Also the thing that is the big snag with this CAA thing is the fact that you can't make a pistol into a shoulder stocked weapon without crossing into NFA-world unless you buy the even more expensive model with the longer barrel. You will also have a $200 tax stamp and background check plus signoff from a local chief law enforcement person or a judge, filing a form 1 and all other pertinent things, then a lengthy wait for the BATFE to get to processing your paperwork. They'll get right with you directly though, as they probably have a backlog of Gunrunner/Fast and Furious files left to shred.......
This is the tacticool craze gone too far. I see form before function here. There are much more simple, less stylized, and more practical shoulder stock/carbine conversions for handguns out there already.
