Looking to verify the pre/post status of a lower marked SGW/Olympic. The AR15 Legal list isn't 100% clear, and Oly doesn't answer their phones, due to the earthquake. Any suggestions? Thanks

"Most" SGW marked lowers are preban. However..... What is the serial number, I can help. GEF

Also note that simply because a given lower receiver has a "pre-ban" serial number does not necessarily mean that the firearm was assembled prior to the ban, only that the receiver was manufactured before the effective date of the ban. In order for an assault weapon to be "grandfathered", it must have been configured as an assault weapon prior to the ban (the effective date of the ban was September 13, 1994.) If a stripped lower receiver was in a dealer's bound book at the time the ban took effect, and it is later discovered in an assault weapon configuration, it could be rather easily ascertained that it is not a grandfathered firearm. Receivers in private hands on the day of the ban are a little more ambiguous as who is to say if it was or was not in an assault weapon configuration on the date of the ban, and then later stripped? As always, buyer beware. Here is a good site to check out status http://home1.gte.net/bblakley/ban/ RON
