So before anyone tells me the difference is 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine there's no need I already know that part of things. I don't know about other states but in NY you cant seem to buy a Colt AR stripped lower. Anyone know why?
Are you talking one where the lower is engraved for "Auto", or one with the extra hole? Extra hole is a no-no.
As to the Colt AR receiver, if it's Pre-Ban, and says "Colt AR-15" on it, you're fine. If it's Post-Ban, it can still be a Colt lower, it just has to say something other than AR-15 on it (Match Target, Sporter, HBAR, etc).
