AR-15 with PINNED stock

Hello,
I found a really good deal on several guns from a local paper but have a question for your guys.. One guns is an AR M4A3 but the dude says it has a collapsible stock that is PINNED.. This tells me it was made during the ban.. Now can I remove the pin or can I put on a new collapsible stock or ir the stock welded on? Is there any other things I should worry about with this format sine it was make during the ban, any limatations as to what I can do?? Thanks in advance! I'll post some pics of the new toys

Then removing the pins won't help you.The plastic body & latch are for looks. Will not function like a normal m4 carbine stock and the tube that house the piston/spring is longer.You can remove that set up if you had a spanner wrench easy enough.

Some of the early post ban rifle's did have regular M4 three position stocks that they pinned.Most have the other type.The plastic body will move but will not lock up.And if you collasped it the steel tube would stick out the end.

FAC Guns-N-Stuff has them and the wrench.M4 stocks are a dime a dozen. If you decide to do the job be careful.The spring will go airborn....

Yep mine's the other type with the long tube.

I got no problem with it though as I've had and seen the collapsible ones "collapse" permanetly.
