I am writing a paper on the AWB and need some info that I cannot seem to find. Does anyone have a list or table that list ALL the models and styles that the AWB banned. I remeber having that table of banned items when I was building my first AR but I can't seem to find that anywhere on my computer. If anyone has that I would greatlyappreciate it.

It wasn't brands that were banned, it was features. Colt & others simply dropped most features & they kept making a few of them.

CA, OTOH, HAS banned them according to models & brands, IIRC. Check their state DOJ web site for better info than I have/know.

Actually, the Federal Ban specificaly named several Specific Models, as well as banning any rifle that had more than 2 of a list of features. Here is the list of what was banned:

The term ''semiautomatic assault weapon'' means -
(A) any of the firearms, or copies or duplicates of the firearms in any caliber, known as -
(i) Norinco, Mitchell, and Poly Technologies Avtomat Kalashnikovs (all models);

Worthy to note is that the AWB was also redundant.

Firearms like the FNs and the Steyr were banned from import 5 years prior to the AWB.
