I've recently read some posts on rec.guns regarding pre ban lower receivers being classified as post ban if they are sold stripped. Stripped being stripped I suppose (without anything?). The comments seem to suggest that the ATF regards these as post ban once this happens. Is this true? And if so, since when?

Can anyone enlighten me.

Thanks,

Double Sun

it may be true but i doubt a conviction could ever be had.

the cost of proving this type of case would not be worth it.

Troy,

Following that same logic (if you call it that) would a "preban" lower, transferred with a collapsing buttstock, and a pistol grip installed on it, retain it's status?

You mentioned "complete gun" but my understanding of the new ATF interpretation, is that if transferred with these two parts installed, it would still have to be considered an assault weapon, and therefore retain it's grandfathered status, correct?

That's what I'm wondering too. If it were sold completely built does it retain its pre ban status? Completely built meaning firing control group, grip and stock (fixed or telescoping). You know, complete!

When was this new intepretation made by the way? Anyone know?

With a fixed stock, I would think it would not retain it's preban status, since thats only one evil feature (pistol grip)

See link posted above for background on the issue.
