Good evening, Ashebourton:
May I ask why Bren 2M is considered a "pistol" ? Thanks and cheers.
In the US, rifles with a barrel length of 16in or less with a buttstock are considered a "short barreled rifle" or SBR which are illegal to own unless you pay the federal government a tax stamp allowing you to own that type of weapon. So to skirt the law, manufacturers remove the buttstock and add a buttplate thus legally catagorizing the weapon as a Pistol. What owners of Pistols can do is add an arm brace (which looks like a buttstock) to "add" stability while shooting, however, they can still be used like a typical buttstock.
