does this sound like it would fly according to atf rules for nj. a company said that they will thread my barrel with a non standard thread pattern and put thier muzzle brake on. i said i need it pinned in nj. they said that its a non standard thread so no other brakes except thiers will fit so there is no need to pin it. anyone else think this is riskey.

Why would the ATF be expected to be knowledgable of let alone enforce NJ state regulations?

JP was pitching their nonstandard thread pitches an ban legal during the dark days. You may want to inquire with them on how they handled the legalities of it. They might help.

A quote from JP's website about compensators and threading:


.750 or smaller barrel, 9x16 post ban legal


Better check you state specific requirements, though, as they can supersede or be more stringent than the national laws.

Yep and you're in Texas where no state assault weapons ban exists. This guy's in NJ and has state laws he must abide by.

yep and its a no threaded barrel state.

I live in NY and have a preban Olympic Arms SGW lower, I had my 16" post ban barrel cut and threaded to 14.5" and had a Phantom FH pinned on and than welded over the pin, I believe this is the corect way.

I am also in NY and agree with the above, that pinning with a weld over the pin is the way to stay safe with a post ban gun situation in our continued restrictive state. What I don't understand is why you did that on your pre-ban. You could have simply threaded the Phantom on. It's a pre-ban gun. If the FH is legal, so are the threads. You can configure that Olympic any way you like.

Where in the state statutes, or administrative code, does it say the brake needs to be pinned? The pinning requirement was from the ATF and only pertained to federal regulations.

YES! Brain freeze! I missed the 14.5" statement. Was thinking 16" Pre-ban.

If NJ is similar to NY, It needs to be pinned and welded to effectively negate the fact that it had threads. It's gray but it seems to work.

My issue is that the NJ statutes and Administrative Code are silent on this specific issue. Additionally, the NJSP and Attorney General's office have not taken a position in writing on this. Nowhere does any NJ government agency say that it needs to be pinned and welded. If they want it done that way they should say so.

Again, I'm not sure about Jersey, but NY's is worded as follows;

18 22. "ASSAULT WEAPON" MEANS (A) A SEMIAUTOMATIC RIFLE THAT HAS AN ABIL-
19 ITY TO ACCEPT A DETACHABLE MAGAZINE AND HAS AT LEAST TWO OF THE FOLLOW-
20 ING CHARACTERISTICS:
21 (I) A FOLDING OR TELESCOPING STOCK;
22 (II) A PISTOL GRIP THAT PROTRUDES CONSPICUOUSLY BENEATH THE ACTION OF
23 THE WEAPON;
24 (III) A BAYONET MOUNT;
25 (IV) A FLASH SUPPRESSOR OR THREADED BARREL DESIGNED TO ACCOMMODATE A
26 FLASH SUPPRESSOR;

27 (V) A GRENADE LAUNCHER; OR

Pinning is reversible, and the threads underneath are still "designed" to accomodate a flash suppressor, but if a muzzle break is threaded on then pinned followed by welding, it is no longer reversible nor is it "designed" to accomodate..... The threads become a non-issue.

I stand corrected. It still sucks though.

Shotgun1,

I looked up the NJ definitions (NJSA 2C:39-1 w) of Assault Firearms and there is nothing stated about threaded barrels, welding, pinning ect. I'll go back to my opinion that, absent some determination from the NJSP or AGs office, a non-flash hider muzzel device is OK with being screwed on.

That my opinion and I'm sticking to it!

Mike

Mike,

AGREED! I compared NJ's wording to NY's the other day, and found it to be VERY different. With the disclaimer that I'm still not as up on Jersey as I am on NY, I didn't find anything on threads in the stuff I read.

I hate to burst your bubble but I found this

www.state.nj.us/lps/dcj/agguide/assltf.htm




A semi-automatic firearm should be considered to be "substantially identical," that is, identical in all material respects, to a named assault weapon if it meets the below listed criteria:

A. semi-automatic rifle that has the ability to accept a detachable magazine and has at least 2 of the following:

1. a folding or telescoping stock;
2. a pistol grip that protrudes conspicuously beneath the action of the weapon;
3. a bayonet mount;
4. a flash suppressor or threaded barrel designed to accommodate a flash suppressor; and
5. a grenade launcher;





Although it appears a threaded barrel and flash suppressor would be okay on a M1A do the lack of pistol grip. Go figure more stupid NJ gun laws.

If you go by that (which I don't if its not in the statute) no muzzle attachments are allowed even if pinned and welded.

Now hold on..... a muzzle break is not a flash suppressor, and if it's pressed on or pressed and pinned it would be 100% OK. If it's threaded, pinned and welded it is no longer "designed" to accomadate anything and has been found to be legal under the bans still in effect in some states.

I am faced with the same thing in CT. (With nearly IDENTICAL language in the statutes to NY. Do these guys all go to the same country club or something?)

Anyway, I read elsewhere that high-temp (+1100 deg) silver solder is suffecient to permenatly mount a brake.

Any input?

When this was a Federal issue as opposed to an individual State ban, it depended on which ATF agent you got on the phone as to what was suffecient. Some would say solder was OK, but just about all would approve pinning followed by welding.
Link Posted: 8/7/2005 5:37:47 AM EDT

(a) any shotgun having a barrel or barrels of less than 18 inches in length measured from the breech to the muzzle

(b) any rifle having a barrel or barrels of less than 16 inches in length measured from the breech to the muzzle

(c) any firearm altered from a rifle or a shotgun having an overall length of less than 26 inches


Any shorter than this, ....
