Pre-Ban AR15 Receiver and AWB Compliance

Postby penumbra » Thu Aug 26, 2010 7:34 pm

does having a pre ban AR15 (lower) receiver matter at all (in CT)? can you build the rifle with "evil" features? or must your build still comply with the AWB?

If you have a confirmed preban lower you can build a rifle in any configuration such as collapsing stocks, threaded barrels, flash hiders, suppressors, bayonet lugs.

As long as the barrel is 16" or 14.5" w/ permanently attached device you are good to go.

Down the road you also have the choice to SBR (short barrel rifle) the lower for barrels shorter than 16". This is part of the NFA Act and costs $200.00.
