    Havent talked about this for a long time!

    The answer is Very Folded Length specific!

    In the old days I could have visited Michigan with my Wa state CPL and taken my
    AK side folder Loaded in my car, even if I had never actually Folded it!
    It was a Michigan Pistol!!!
    And it was not/could not, be registered in Michigan as a pistol, cause Im not a resident.

    Law got changed,, now mine is too long,, by about an inch...

    I do believe, but Im not sure, that under the new law,,, an Underfolder,
    is shorter enough the it Does qualify as a Michigan Pistol..

    Thanks to anti gun AG Frank Kelly, any long gun that folds under 26" is a sbr by state law, even though with a 16" barrel and an unfolded length of over 26" federal law disagrees.

    The Michigan dumb ass pistol (midap) days are over, and the federal asinine pistol (fap) glory days are over as well with the garbage atf letter about wrist braces. So, at this time, a legit sbr is the closest thing to what you want.
    Answer every question about open carry in Michigan you ever had with one convenient and free book-

    The complete and utter truth can be challenged from every direction and it will always hold up. Accordingly there are few greater displays of illegitimacy than to attempt to impede free thought and communication.

    There are some underfold AKs that are considered pistols in Michigan and rifles under federal law.
    "No state shall convert a liberty to a privilege, license it, and charge a fee therefor.- Murdock vs Pennsylvania 319 US 105

    ...If the state converts a right into a privelege, the citizen can ignore the license and fee and engage in the right... with impunity.
    - Shuttleworth vs City of Birmingham, Alabama 317 US 262

    Where rights secured by the Constitution are involved, there can be no legislation which would abrogate them.
