I originally posted this in the wrong forum. Is there a cutoff date on all PWA lowers designating them as pre/post ban, or do all post-ban lowers have the year of production as a prefix in the serial number?? I have been told that any PWA lower without the production year prefix is a pre-ban. Is this correct? If not, what is the cut off point in the serial numbers?

I am not certain, but I think all PWA lowers are preban....then they became RRA. Sgtar15

this is in the articles section under "legal" from the preban serial number list: PWA (360) 438-3983 35222 and Below - Pre-Ban (Note:Some lowers are cast not forged. Out of business) Post-ban have a year prefix in the serial number. Rumored to have only sold lowers. but as Troy has rightly pointed out on other posts the only way you can be sure that you have a legal preban is if you have a letter from the factory saying it left there as an assembled preban and therefore grandfathered or you have a paper trail proving that it was indeed a rifle before the ban. For practical purposes however the above info is good enough... hth
