Battle Arms Development Paratrooper

I like the looks of it. Although that doesn’t look like solid walnut (might just be the photography though).

I wouldn’t want .300BLK and certainly wouldn’t pay $3k for it. :)

With a 7.5” barrel, it pretty much has to be .300blk or it’s virtually useless when it comes to being effective on target.

The cheek piece is likely dipped. The rest of it looks like wood. The grip is made from two halves.

I like it a lot better than black plastic.

I think you’re right. The cheek piece is essentially “simulated wood grain” like in a fancy car dashboard.

I’d expect more from a $3k weapon but you know how I roll, lol.

From the item description: 
Paying homage to the old-school WWII era weapons, the "PARATROOPER" is furnished with custom Grade A French Walnut Handguard & Pistol Grip.  To cap it off, it is paired with wood finished SS Cheek Rest (UV stablized, simulated wood powdercoat finish) for strength and durability.  The complete rifle is finished with H-Series CERAKOTE with custom blended "Parkerized Green Steel & Cosmoline" theme finish matching that of the M1 Garand, M1 Carbine, 1903A3, etc.

If that’s true they should have made the barrel longer. I had a $500 PLR-16 with a 9.2” barrel that was accurate at the ranges you would be using a SBR. With manufactures offering AR Pistols that don’t require the NFA drama; I would want go that route.

Isn’t there someone making real wood AR furniture?

      Is it still worthwhile to purchase NFA items through a Trust? If So can anyone recommend a good attorney to do the trust for me. I'm in Franklin, TN

      I bought a pistol complete lower and put a 10.5 inch upper on it. To make an AR Pistol. I didn’t put a brace on it. According to the BATF that is legal; at least TODAY that is legal.
      So my question is this: Unless you buy it new how do you know it’s a pistol lower? I bought mine new so I had the paperwork.  But I see plenty for sale used or that people built. Its my understanding that if it ever was a rifle; it can't be a pistol without being NFA SBR?? If someone just threw a SB upper on their old POS AR Rifle lower and sold it as a “Pistol”; how would you know? Or more importantly how would cops know if they stopped you and found it? Would it matter?

      I typically file for my stamps and forget about them.  When I get the call from my dealer, it is like Christmas time.  Well, I have 2 stamps that have been pending since mid august 2018, and I can not wait for them to be approved.  I called the other day to check, I was told the average time was 9 months but call back in another 4 weeks and they may be approved.  4 more weeks would put me over 12 months.  All I want is permission from the crown to take my items home that I paid to have!  Efile form 1s are at 30ish days...get it together with the form 4s, please!
