Default Massachusetts compliant 15-22

Iím pretty sure that Iíve read about this before, but my searches have come up empty. If you can help I would appreciate it.

My son, who lives in Florida, has a Mass compliant 15-22 ( got it cheap from CDNN ). Weíve located the pin that holds the buttstock in place but before we remove it we need to know if it will operate in the same manner as non Mass compliant 15-22s. Will it then function like everyone elseís. We want to be sure it wonít just collapse.

Please chime in if you know for sure, or if you can direct me to a source who might know.

The shoulder stock is adjustable as its built by Smith and Wesson. There are 5 or 6 locking lengths positions so you can set the length to whats best for you. There's a spring loaded lever on the bottom of the stock to lock it in place at each separate length. You may know all that but I put it in here just incase you dont. So now in Mass - just like here in Conn no one can buy a adjustable shoulder stock. So a pin has to be added by Smith and Wesson to lock the stock in it's longest position. Removing the pin has no effect on the shoulder stocks NORMAL operation meaning that without the pin you can adjust the shoulder stock to any length you want. I've seen pin removal videos online and it looks simple enough. It has no negative effect on the rifle at all. Believe me.

Thanks for the information. I looked on you tube and found several videos on how to do it. I thought it probably would be easy but wanted to be sure so I wouldn't screw anything up. Anyway, I've removed it and all is good.

I pulled the pin from the stock on my 15-22 the instant I got it home, it now functions as it should.

Yeah, I kind of feel foolish now.I donít know much about rifles and I didnít realize it was as simple as yanking it out with a pair of pliers. I thought that Mass compliant models might have a different buttstock , one that wouldnít operate like those sold elsewhere. Never too old to learn new things.

Massachusetts is one screwed up state. Having the stock adjust to a comfortable fit is somehow bad and must be banned. This makes no sense what so ever.

I have seen "MA compliant " 15-22 stocks glued/non adjustable . Not sure if that was done by the selling shop or S&W.
As others have said, just pull the pin and see. You can always put it back after adjusting the stock.
That said, you might also call G.O.A.L. in MA and ask for a legal opinion. Last I heard, .22's no longer fell under the feel good MA assault weapon legislation. i.e The stock issue may be OBE anyway.

Thanks for the response, but thereís no need to get a legal opinion from Mass. Note in my original post that we live in Florida and bought the pinned rifle based on its price. CDNN had great prices on them last year about this time.
I yanked the pin out a few weeks ago and the rifle is now adjustable.

Many thanks to those of you that offered assistance.
