Possibly, but if you post the actual name instead of the acronym it may be easier to tell you
Is that the aux nat guard?

I live in RI and I have a buyer for an M4 complete upper receiver with bolt carrier and charging handle.  The buyer lives in CT.

It has an A2 bird cage flash hider(not pinned) and a bayonet lug.

Is it legal for me to sell this item to the buyer?

I have a complete rifle, but he is only interested in my upper and claims (yes I know he can claim anything he wants) his lower is a pre-ban.

Any advice here is appreciated.

I have a m&p 15/22 with bull barrel and wanted a comp that I could put on.  If I had it threaded then pinned would this be a work around to a threaded barrel? Would this configuration still be legal with a pinned stock?

Yes, because they are using the old law for rimfires

A Conniticuct member states he is LEO and wants to buy my Colt LE6920.

Is this legal?

I know what I have read from my research, I would like verification from residents/LEO/FFL's.

Thanks!

It is legal, he needs a letter from his commanding officer stating it is approved for purchase. Delta Arsenal is the FFL to call with questions, many FFLs won't transfer any ARs, including prebans which are GTG for anyone.

Hello I was looking at getting a Connecticut compliant SW15-22 sport.

But I am trying to find out if there are any compliant .17HMR available?  
I would like the added range for hunting but I cannot find any.


Thanks

There are companies making .22lr marked lowers which have been legally transferred after the ban Malloy put in. Because it is rimfire.  You then can buy a 17hmr upper and build from there as long as you are within the legal limits of evil features.   You cannot have a flash hider, threaded barrel, telescoping or collapsing or folding stock.    Rimfires are allowed ONE feature to be legal WITH a detatchable mag.  TWO features will make it against the law. So the pistol grip of an ar is that ONE allowed feature so that means no threaded barrel, flash suppressor, bayo lug collapsing stock etc.

Franklin armory makes a sweet ass 17WSM...$$$$$$

Just make sure you have an ffl tha will transfer it before you spend any money. The few shops that I knew who did it in the past no longer will.

Quick question about NFA compliance..  I have been drooling for a while over a double picatinny clamp and building a shorty 870 to go under one of my ARs. Would I need to SBR the 870, or would it get a pass as long as it's attached to the rifle?

Common sense would dictate that it would need an NFA stamp, but I figure it can't hurt to ask.

Quick question about paperwork. I came across a tacticooled mini 14 years ago..  aftermarket poly stock, pistol grip, flash hider, but it's definitely a preban.

Thing is, it was bought during a time when a gun sale was cash and a handshake. Being a preban is it still good to go or should I keep it laying low?
Link Posted: 1/27/2017 12:09:58 PM EDT
You don't need a receipt of purchase. Who was the manufacturer of the rifle? If it is Chinese it is definitely OK as they were banned before the ban. If it is Springfield, call/email them to verify manufacture date via the serial number.

I'm sorry, to whom were you replying?

If it was me, it's a ruger and definitely preban, but it's not registered with the state. For that matter, I have a revolver from the 60s that's also not registered. Not sure what the legality is

I was talking to you Beetle. Sorry missed the Mini part, thought you said M14 (M1a). As Andrapos said, no need to have registration for everything if it was legally purchased and/or transferred in state.

If you want proof for whatever reason about preban status, you can look up Ruger Mini manufacture dates HERE.

Cheers,

John

Once again, you guys are unbelievably helpful. Thanks!
Link Posted: 2/4/2017 2:25:10 PM EDT
Two questions. The questions are similar in nature but they are for two different guns. After proof reading my questions it can read like I am trying to work some kind of an angle. I am not. I have a .22lr suppressor coming in and I'm trying to figure out what is, or can be made, compatible with it.

1) An AR-15 variant built on a stamped .22lr lower is gtg so long as it can't be readily converted to a centerfire rifle, correct? Could that rifle have a threaded barrel?

2) Can a bolt action .22lr rifle with a detachable magazine have a threaded barrel?


The suppressor is a Griffin Checkmate, it utilizes a 3 lug QD attachment that threads onto the barrel. For an example; if the bolt action rifle (Savage mkIV) cannot have a threaded barrel, I would have the 3-lug attachment pinned/welded onto the barrel.

In addition to a detachable magazine, it would be able to have 1 feature. Most commonly people go with the pistol grip. In order to have threading, it would need to be equipped with a non-pistol grip stock, no bayonet lug, no telescoping or collapsible stock, and no grenade launcher.  

2) Can a bolt action .22lr rifle with a detachable magazine have a threaded barrel?


Yes! A bolt action can have as many features as you can attach to it.

I've seen another post on this before.
My question is:
How does this qualify the rifle as not having a detachable magazine?
After-all, the magazine is detachable. You just have to pop the rear take-down pin to do so. But, still detachable.

So you are saying something like a 10/22 can have a threaded barrel as long as it has its typical rifle stock and not one of those crazy tactical stocks with a pistol grip?

JoJos is threading a 10/22 for me right now, and he laughed at me when I asked if I needed to pin the QD suppressor mount on it.
Link Posted: 2/19/2017 8:54:32 AM EDT
More in relation to my Griffin Checkmate coming in. It uses this three lug QD adapter that gets threaded on the end of the barrel, and can be pinned on the end of the barrel to make it permanent (no longer a threaded barrel).

I've not looked at the laws for .22lr handguns, I assume they're the same for centerfire handguns?


Does anyone see a way you could permanently attach one of these QD mounts to a Walther P22 and still be able to take it down enough to clean it? I'm watching video after video trying to figure out how the barrel threads into a barrel guide etc. I can't make sense of how it would work.

Aside from Browning Buckmarks and Ruger MKs, any ideas for other good .22 suppressor hosts?
Link Posted: 2/19/2017 12:00:35 PM EDT
if you can get a mk4 22/45 lite, have a qd pinned, it would trump all the options that you could come up with. very reliable pea shooters.

the barrels on semis as you listed slide out of the slide. if the qd was a smaller od and the barrel hole on the slide is a larger id, you could finagle the bagle.  but thats a theory ive been thinking about.  not sure on accuracy or barrel support though.  
if my memory serves me correct, i saw a 22/45 lite at the place with a shit show parking lot. but my eyes could have been playing tricks on me.

other than that, we are limited to mk style 22's for suppressor hosts. if you can get a shop to buy a new mk series, and pin a qd then transfer it.
Link Posted: 2/20/2017 4:45:37 PM EDT
Pre-Ban Buckmarks are not too hard to find either.  Since the barrel is not serialized like a Ruger, you can just order a TacSol barrel for it.

For a decent price?

Everyone I find is like $400-500.   That's like double what I'm looking to spend on a 20+ year old .22
Link Posted: 2/21/2017 5:05:14 PM EDT
I got lucky but actually found on in the gun library at Cabelas for $250, it was in nice shape.  I think it was so clean because the set screws that keep the rear sight from moving all over the place were never tightened.  The previous owner probably thought it was a piece of junk with bad accuracy.

Most do seem to be in the $400 range, but most are nowhere near worn out.  It sucks that by the time you get the threaded barrel, you are at $550-$600 for a .22 host.

the whole mag block thing if i recall, was beaten to death here over a year ago. its not verified legal in CT to do. verified i mean as taken to court with lawyers, and is given the OK to use on new builds and new purchases, preformed at the FFL dealer by an FFL in which your buying the lower from or complete gun from.  until then, its a VERY GREY area. i do also agree its legit and good to go, but there is no legal status for this. play at your own risk.  for me, the risk is not worth facing felony charges, and i for one will not do this until the state says its legal to use.

if your in need of a brand new ar lower or whatever, you can buy from that guy in new milford selling AOW's built on YOUR choice of lower
