Get a new receiver that's never been built into a rifle. Install a pistol buffer tube (it can't have a stock) or go with a stockless upper like the Olympic Arms OA93 or ZM Weapons uppers. The barrel cannot have a handguard, shroud or 2nd pistol grip. The muzzle cannot be threaded. Now the hard part - you've got to keep the assembled, empty weight under 50 ounces (impossible with standard parts), or you've got to make the magazine non-detachable. Currently, only the Professional Ordnance carbon-fiber pistols make the weight limit for a legal post-ban AR-15 pistol with a detachable magazine. Perhaps you could just go buy one of those?
