What is the difference between some preban ar15's that have the bayonnet lug and flash suppressor as opposed to the ones that only have a flash suppressor, no bayonnet lug?

The difference is "Political Correctness" Colt did this to make thier rifles less evil and more politically correct.

Thanks for the info. I recently purchased a preban AR15 - my first one. It has a flash suppressor, step barrell, but no bayonet lug. I really love it. My collection mainly exists of preban HK rifles/pistole. It is a pleasure to put this one in the collection.

There you go. That's what we like to hear.

The BIG difference between pre- and post-ban is you can change anything you want on the pre-ban. The bayo lug is cosmetic. If you have a pre-ban without a bayo lug you can still add a 4-position stock, for example, and still be legal. However, I wouldn't do this until I had checked the serial # and confirmed that it was in fact a pre-ban rifle.

pre 1989 had bayo lugs and ak's had pistol grip. 1989-1994 no pistol grip on chinese ak's, had thumbhole stock(MAK-90); ar's etc without bayo lug but could add later. After 1994 even less features. After next ban: probably no barrel. Who knows. I'm not a lawyer but that's my understanding. 1989 ban was signed by George Bush. Initially, it stopped sale of all AW's for about 6 months, and then was lifted when it did not decrease crime. Bayo lug restriction remained due to large number of civilians bayonetted every year(sarcasm).

sorry, but no ban on AR bayo lugs in 1989 (domestic). It was a ban to restrict certain configurations on imports only.
