Since the ban applies to semiautos, could you build a rifle with all 5 of the "evil" features (FS,B.Lug,Pistol grip,C. stock, and removable magazine) if the rifle was a pump-action? Just wondering. Vulcan94

VA-gunnut, I have to agree with you on that, but just wondering if it was possible to do an "end run" around the ban. Vulcan94

I wasn't talking about ignoring the legal aspects, just if the rifle was pump-action only the semiautomatic assault rifle ban would not apply. Does anybody in the legal field care to take a stab an this question? Vulcan94

I'm not a lawyer, but a pump, bolt, lever, etc. rifle can have all the "evil features" you want (under federal law) as long as it meets the NFA minimum overall length (30 inches with stock folded IIRC), minimum barrel length (16 inches), etc.

In order to be restricted as a SAW the rifle must be semiautomatic and have a removable magazine. They are not features. If you permanently convert the action to something other then semiautomatic or permanently alter the magazine so it's no longer removable you are no longer restricted to adding the other "features" under federal law. The minimum overall length is 26" under federal law. All of the above may be restricted by state or local law.

I think DPMS used to make one. The question is: Why would you want one.

DPMS did make a pump action AR 15 right after the ban - I have the article somewhere.

1) Would removing the gas tube and capping the Gas block count as non-semi automatic or would that not be permanent enough 2) What is required to convert an AR-15 to Non-Detachable Magazine A La SKS.
