S&W M&P15-22 "Compliant" model

S&W are now selling a version of the .22 AR-15 patterned M&P15-22 that is compliant with Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maryland, New Jersey and New York law.

It has been made compliant by fixing the stock so it cannot be adjusted and supplying a 10 round magazine. The MSRP is still $499.

The pistol grip and removable magazine prevent it from being California compliant. .22 Rifles are exempt from California Assault Weapon laws.

    Is it possible to replace the fixed stock in The S&w AR 15-22 CT compliant model and replace it with a Ssar-15 Bump fire stock?
    Will it be legal, technically this is not a colapsible stock

    What the heck does having the convenience of an adjustable stock have anything to do with a weapons lethality? Some people need to adjust the stock. What the heck?
