AR pistols with 5.5 barrel if Braces are banned

What options would you have if you have an AR pistol with a 5.5 barrel (18.75-23.5) and braces are banned?
From my understanding it would be to small to make SBR in MD?

Go brace-less like the early days of AR pistols. A rubber crutch tip is not a stock.

5.5" barreled ARs are obnoxious and not accurate. Get a 10.5" 300BLK.

>29" OAL or something for SBR in MD. You could pin and weld a muzzle thing to get the length. Until they ban braces go the pistol route and even if they ban braces you can still have the pistol sans brace.

I doubt anyone will come and check out your stock at the range.

Tell that to my 5" 9mm AR pistol that shoots 4" groups at 100 yds.

That's 9mm out of a normal length barrel, for a pistol. The 5.5" barrel on a 556 is just a fireball of unused powder going 2X faster with no time to stabilize. YMMV

Yeah I know. Just being a contrarian.

I'm all better now(contrary to popular opinion).
Lunch and hugs coming your way soon.

yank the brace, deal with the tube temporarily, send some loot to your 2A group du jour, and fight to get them un-banned. Before the Sig brace there were "cheek rests" and before that foam pads, people have been shouldering buffer tubes for many years before braces. Given a few recent cases challenging agencies trying to make law, our chances are good to get a favorable ruling
