Sorry if this was answered in other threads...I didnt see any. Are civilians able to buy LEO marked AR's? I know we can buy LEO marked magazines and such....so I was just wondering. Thanks everyone!

Yes. The markings mean nothing. If anything, the markings make your AR more "collectible", so make sure to hide it way back in the safe, so that it never gets touched. Oh, and don't forget to save the box it came in.

I know that we can but I think that it's a terrible idea. I know sounding like a harbinger of doom is frowned upon on these boards, but what if they change the laws again?

thn the laws will be changed to be what ever they wil be.
the point is they will be new laws. who knows what they will be or what they will say.

If they change the laws again and it has a grandfather clause, they will have to come up with specific and ban relevant wording that will be applied to all new LEO only equipment. It will have to be different than the old language. I'd bet date specific stampings will also come into play, just like they did on mags.

Yep, purchase away. I have several LEO pieces.

If another ban goes in, the markings will have to be different.

I hate the use of "civilian" to seperate those non-military citizens into law enforcement vs. non-law enforcement employees. I know some will think I'm nit picking, but words mean specific things!

We are very careful on this board to use the proper terminology when it comes to our beloved weapons - as well we should. It prevents misunderstanding and promotes clear communication.

When it comes to LEO's and the rest of the non-military population, we're ALL civilians.

N/A to present day NOLA.

This is the very reason I've never taken my "Law Enforcement Only"-marked spatula out of the box.

Seriously- I like to laugh at all the LEO stuff now that it's all over with. So much worrying over such worthless crap. We did see a large increase in drive-by bayonettings as a result of the lifted ban though.

There will be a small number of "collectors" who will be foolish enough to pay a premium for LEO marked stuff. It won't be me, though.

It's a F-ing sad and scary truth. It has me slightly worried of the trend.

I hope every LE knows AWB sunset and would not make a big deal when seeing those LE Only markings. Or just sit in the pit for a few days until they check out the law!

It was always legal to own a LEO marked lower, it just had to be in a postban configuration during the ban.

Me neither. I don't need LEO, ponies, or anything else stamped on my rifles.

I am seriously considering the purchase of an ADCO unbanned
6400C. The will be no LEO stamp, and no bayonet lug.
I will not have a "real" 6920, but I cannot bring myself to
give a damn.

I'm with you. I don't have a bayonet lug on any of my rifles. I don't miss it one bit.

I shudder when I think about what "gun laws" could be proposed and maybe enacted if this country is foolish enough to elect Hillary Clinton President.

I don't care about the gun, all I want is the bayonet lug.

Read that again: The marking itself was never illegal to have on your rifle, so long as the rifle was
in a configuration that was legal to own at the time.

Yes. Truth. Look it up.


Bushmaster's flunky wouldn't believe me....though I won the argument hands down by quoting
the actual text of the law.

There is also a letter from the ATF stating it is legal.

Geez, I sure was hoping to see a bunch of affirmatives. Otherwise, I'd be quite the felon.

This is why I like the forward thinking (or reverse psycology) of the geniuses at RB Precision and Superior Arms.

A LEO/Mil can't touch my weapon. It's restricted.
