FYI here is some useful info Also note that simply because a given lower receiver has a "pre-ban" serial number does not necessarily mean that the firearm was assembled prior to the ban, only that the receiver was manufactured before the effective date of the ban. In order for an assault weapon to be "grandfathered", it must have been configured as an assault weapon prior to the ban (the effective date of the ban was September 13, 1994.) If a stripped lower receiver was in a dealer's bound book at the time the ban took effect, and it is later discovered in an assault weapon configuration, it could be rather easily ascertained that it is not a grandfathered firearm. Receivers in private hands on the day of the ban are a little more ambiguous as who is to say if it was or was not in an assault weapon configuration on the date of the ban, and then later stripped? As always, buyer beware. http://home1.gte.net/bblakley/ban/

ArmaLite's official "generic" position on pre/post status of receivers they've made is: 1.Almost all Eagle Arms rifles bearing the notation "Eagle Arms Div ArmaLite" are post-ban rifles. The only exception will be on serial numbers under 30,000. Receivers with pre-ban serial numbers marked with the ArmaLite name are new receivers produced to repair legitimate pre-ban rifles. 2.Many Eagle Arms lower receivers were sold to customers and assembled outside the factory. ArmaLite has no way of knowing which of these arms were legitimately assembled into "pre-ban" rifles before the Crime Bill went into effect. 3.ArmaLite's history specialist will conduct research into the production history of a given serial number and provide a letter attesting to its factory designation and shipping date. The research will be conducted at a cost of $25.00 per firearm. The customer name CANNOT be provided due to privacy constraints.
