 Looking to purchase my first AR-15 and live in Massachusetts

I live in Massachusetts and am interested in an AR-15. My thoughts are to buy a classified preban that was shipped right from the factory for ease of questioning the law, the few extra hundred dollars is worth my piece of mind. I found an Eagle Arms AR-15 that has a serial number under 15000 and I would check with Eagle Arms before purchasing to confirm the manufacture date. The barrel is E MP 5.56 NATO 1/7 and the lower is stamped Coal Valley, IL CAL. 5.56MM. EA-15 SER. 14xxx.

I would like a preban so that at some point I could put either a flash suppressor and or a collapsible stock on it / use it in some other type of a build. I would also like to add optics to it at some point as well, so that handle would need to go, and I am unsure if it is removable or if a new upper is needed.

I have read a few threads about Eagle Arms but would like some honest feedback about my "idea" and about this firearm in general and what an appropriate price is for it - this gun has under 100 rounds through it. If there is a better option out there without being that much more expensive please let me know as well. I do not want to get into any situation where there could be a question as to if the firearm I have or create with the lower is legal in Mass or not - I am just not willing to take that chance.

(This is my first post so take it easy on me please)

You may have better luck in the "hometown" forum and post the same question under Mass. You can also check out the Model 4 from Stag Arms. I bought one of those and love it. I think they are around 1000 now. Not sure about the pre ban stuff. Best bet is ask in the hometown forum. Good luck.

Well, we massholes elected Scott Brown didn't we? That was a GOOD thing....<><....:)

if you can get the preban for a good price buy it, if you don't buy it let me know and I will buy it. How much are they asking for the Eagle preban?
I also am stuck in the people's republic of Massachusetts, where liberal socialists and Marxists rule, for now anyway, let the tea parties begin....<><....:)

Thank you, I will try posting in the local forum. If anyone has anything to offer regarding quality of Eagle Arms it would be appreciated. Thanks again.
