Hi guys.
Im asking here for a friend of mine and even though Im not too optimistic about an answer I thought Id give it a try.
 
Here is the thing. My friend does alot of target shooting at his range with his 22. cal Drulov 75 pistol. Now he wants to modify the gun, making some sort of foldable, small, compact, shoulder stock to the grip of his gun. Why he wants it Im not sure of, maybe because he is well into his 60´s and not as steady as before? But he is stubborn as hell and really wants to modify his Drulov in as clean neat way as possible.
 
Here is a picture of the Drulov as it is now and below a picture of the idea, but he would really just accept my suggestions if its a collapsable stock. Now guys, anyone out there with ideas?

In the US that would need to be BATFE approved and would make the gun a short barreled rifle.  Failure of approval would be 10 years in jail and 10,000 dollars, not counting court cost.  Once the gun is modified, it can not be legally unmodified.  That does not mean it is legal in his state.  It is the same thing as getting a sawed off shotgun, machine gun,AOW or silencer.  He would need law enforcment sign off or a corporation or trust set up.  He should consult a lawyer who specializes in that area of law.  He should use somebody who already has the license to make that sort of thing rather than do it himself.

I'm not saying that it could not be done.  I don't think it is worth it.  He should buy one of the Buckmark rifles.

You sure about all that Silver.  You can buy these for your pistols and they require no special permissions and paper work to use them.  http://www.mechtechsys.com/index.html

Differant stuff... Note the barrel lenght.  Try something that replaces the mainspring housing and it get wierd fast.  Somethings are grandfathered and some are not.  Various C&R stuff like some of the Lugars, Broomhandles and some Hi-powers are legal.  Others, you can have both the gun and the stock and it is legal as long as they are not together. That's why you want the lawyer!

Shooter4,
 
Not only did you post this in the wrong forum you posted it on the wrong site.  Please do not ask question on how to do something that is illegal.
 
Silver,
 
Thanks for quickly clarifying the legalities of this.

Good Catch Silver.  Supertool some frames can start as a pistol frame and legally be converted to a rifle but you cant go the other way rifle frame and build a pistol on it. EX. AR-15 recievers and TC encore recievers. The end product to be a legal rifle has to be 26in overall  and 16+ in of that has to be barrel, with shotguns it's 18+ has to be barrel.  Total length in the shortest configuration (stock folded or collapsed) must be over 26 in.  I've seen dealers mess up by putting a factory 20 in barrel on an encore frame with a folding stock which is illegal because it falls about an inch and a half short of the 26in total. Laws are made for Lawyers by Lawyers to keep Lawyers in business.  The simple answer is dont do it just go buy a 22 rifle the end result will be far better and cheaper.  Once a pistol frame is converted to a rifle I doubt you can go back the other way and have it be a pistol again.
