The way I read it, owning an 80% lower, which is not a firearm yet, is okay. Completing an 80% lower is illegal, since you are now in possession of a banned assault weapon. I'm not a lawyer, so purchase at your own peril.

The clusterfuck that is SB281 can be downloaded here:

This is the general concensus

But what happens if you put a heavy barreled upper on it which is legal in MD?

Who's to say when you completed it? Only new ones are banned. Those owned before Oct. 1, 2013 are grandfathered in and still legal.

Presumably, it meets the exception in that case.

So, it's illegal up until you install the HBAR.

Though I guess you could finish and build it out of state, bring it in as a completed HBAR, and you're GTG.


I'm not a lawyer. All my 80%s were completed prior to the law.

And we all know you are an absolutely honest person so when you tell us you paid cash for the 80% lowers and finished them before that date we'd have no reason to doubt you. Now, everyone else, waterboard 'em!!
