As an instructor at Renaissance Firearms Instruction in New York, I have significant experience with the legal featureless AR-15. I focus on just that in the video above.

Why Have a Featureless AR-15?

Due to the SAFE Act, semi-automatic rifles with the capability of accepting detachable magazines must be free of certain features; those include folding or collapsible stocks, flash hiders, muzzle brakes, threaded barrels, bayonet lugs, and several other features including pistol grips.

However, Thordsen, Spur/Patrick Henry and BoAR grips allow New Yorkers to legally own an AR-15 rifle that accept detachable magazines. The one caveat is that they are free of other common features.

Through the live-fire session in the video above, we illustrate the advantages and disadvantages of each grip option. We also help shooters decide which might be the best option for their needs based on shooting activity and hand-dominancy.
