Zäck Stock – The Detachable Handgun Stock

Are we being trolled? Can this “system” actually be in development? Look closely at the renderings above and below and you’ll notice what might be a start of a revolution within the firearms industry. And by that I mean that people may be revolted at what they see. Zäck Stock has gone live with a website displaying two designs depicting an AR15 with an handgun attached/embedded handgun in the stock.

Engineering and designs aside, I have a question: Who asked for this? Why did they ask for it? And could  they be the enemy to all things good and true? Because the Zäck Stock appears to have taken two good weapons and created a pile of parts capable of shooting the user in the hands, face, gun and practically anywhere else imaginable.

What’s wrong with a quality holster? What’s wrong with a solid butt stock for that matter? I’d say we should head on over to ZäckStock.com for an explaination, however there are currently no details about the Frankenstein-esque build. All that appears on their site is references to three Ohio based law firms who apparently handle “licensing” of the design. Obviously, anticipation of brisk business has required the need for three legal teams.

I’m honestly looking forward to this release. I can’t tell you how many times I have looked at my collapsible Stock and whispered to myself “I wish you were a handgun”.

Personally, I would have named it the Gunstälk.

Disclaimer: My reaction is based solely on the mock ups pictured here. The actual designs and resulting products may be worthy of a full and detailed review.

    If California could build their nightmare this would be it…

    • Russ Kell

      PRC version has the barrel facing the opposite direction.

      • uncle bobedy

        Good lord that is hilarious!

    • It would have to be in the hands of a poor Black Republican to be true Cali Nightmare Fuel. The very idea of the same set of laws applying to the Hollywood Elite as apply to Those People is what truly gives their legislature sleepless nights.

  • Dr. Longfellow Buchenrad

    When the weight of your sidearm is in the holster its not on your rifle. There is that, but since when do people care about rifle weight when hanging goodies?

  • USMC03Vet

    Mall Ninjas, meet your new God.

    • Edeco

      Blasphemy. I shalt have no other gods before NcStar.

      • Zack mars

        He must repent! 15 “hail tapcos”!

    • noob

      pull the trigger on the pistol and your rifle will meet its maker (as in it will need serious repairs)

  • Vitsaus

    Some one is trying really hard to maim as many rednecks as possible.

  • valorius

    This is dumb, but i always thought an adapter that adapted a semi auto handgun into performing as your VFG would be kinda neat, and marketable. I just never bothered to pursue the idea besides sketching it out and showing it to some buddies who thought it was cool.

    • Zack mars

      Hello NFA

      • valorius

        I don’t think NFA would apply when the handgun IS the VFG, only if a handgun has a VFG.

        • Zack mars

          Nope, atf logic is that a pistol on a rifle now has a stock, and is thus an sbr.

          Several companies have built their own version of your idea, and they count as SBR’s.

          The zip .22 pistol was advertised as being able to be mounted on a rifle, and was also coblvered by the NFA

          • lucusloc

            This is correct. Pistol on a rifle is a SBS. It seems that if the pistol cannot shoot while in that configuration it does not trigger NFA, but I think that is largely dependent on how it is attached.

            In other news the NFA is dumb, full of holes, and needs to be struck down based on vagueness alone, let alone constitutional infringements.

          • Porty1119

            Not if you put it on an AR pistol!

            Yo dawg, I heard you like pistols…

          • Anonymoose

            And then only if it’s over 26″ OAL.

          • valorius

            You might be right.

    • Evan

      NFA aside, how would the pistol cycle? I could also see some serious ejection issues. A revolver might work though.

    The thing you need to carry your pistol is called a HOLSTER!

  • Don Ward

    My grandfather didn’t fight in World War 2 for me to live in a world with a firearms part that has a Gehrdang SCHWA in its name!

    In America we don’t use unstressed central vowels. At least not until the 1950s. And you know what else started in the 1950s in America?


    Using a Schwa.




    • Edeco

      Hey, we have no official language in this country and my ancestor Heinrich Edäco was lurking in this continent in 1692.

      • Disarmed in CA

        Well if Heinrich hasn’t learned English by now I suppose we’ll give him a pass

    • Evan

      That’s an umlaut

  • Malthrak

    Someone here would buy one.

    They might not even do it as a joke.


  • gendar
    • Peter Nissen

      Yup! You’re right. You never go full retard Zäck Stock – do you hear me. NEVER!

  • Creepermoss

    Legend has is, that once this pistol with a stock is drawn from it’s sheath, hundreds of BATFE agents sprout spontaneous erections.

  • Mmmtacos

    There’s a GIF of a guy shooting a C96 with a stock and he pulls out a C96 from the stock so he can shoot since his other C96 with the stock ran out of ammo.

    So yeah, this idea is technically like 111 years old cause you know some dude at Mauser did that back then.

    • tsubaka

      wait isn’t is alex from TFB TV?

  • Disarmed in CA

    If a pistol is for fighting your way to your rifle…

    • noob

      You’d hope that the distance you have to cover is between 7 and 13 inches.

  • Kulibin762

    So how do you charge the rifle?

  • Giolli Joker

    Helluva forward assist.

  • Iggy

    But I already own this nerf gun…

  • Raginzerker

    I’m glad the AR market has been so innovative reccently…

  • Iblis

    Why not make a hard shell container for a pistol that mounts under the stock? That would be so much easier. Protected from the elements and easily accessable. It would not look like a pistol, just extra plastic under the stock.

  • Old Tofu

    how about under the front so you can use it as a forward grip and shoot both guns at the same time?

  • Sasquatch

    Just stop. Stop please you have wasted enough money.

  • nadnerbus
  • SteveK

    INNOVATION is GOOD! Sometimes it looks a bit “nutty”, but overall, GOOD.

  • Rock Island Auction

    “Flexible butt hinge” *snicker*

  • Bill

    Yikes. Just because you can doesn’t mean you should. Look for CA to pass a law outlawing this thing in its mockup form (or maybe outlaw the possession of pictures depicting it).

  • Rogertc1

    The ZIP Gun by USFA failed.
