Well darn. Thanks for the insight. Don’t want to have to cut it off for the occasional service.

I would be worried that would remove the hand grenade functionality.

I have a question:

Is a Colt AR15 9mm Carbine preban legal and will the state give you a AWB form so it can be SBR'd?  Thanks.

A friend wants to know.

All things being equal, yes, provided it has a barrel length over 16". I have not personally gone through the process of registering a preban but I looked into it extensively. The big pin in the whole operation is you need to pay colt for a letter certifying it's manufacture date prior to the 1994 (September something) assault weapons ban. Then once its registered you can send off the form 1 to SBR. I have also know people who just did the form 1 and never did the CT reg and it was just fine, but I dont know that I would go that route.

It may not be transferrable, though, if it just says "ar15" on the receiver with no other markings. That part gets more complicated.

I don't think this is true.  Granted mine isn't a Colt, but I bought a PWA sn 25xxx, in CT, private sale, got the proper authorzation number from the state and everything, then I went to the State Police with my copy (of the 4 copies) of the DPS-3-C, and a filled out DPS-414-C (assault weapons certificate application).

They took my papers for a minute, came back to the window with an ink pad, had me roll my thumb print, embossed the certificate and handed it to me.  I don't see why it would be any different for a Colt.

They also did not ask for a letter when I registered a colt a little while back, even though I have a letter.  They did not even ask

Since 7.62x39 ak style rifles are a no go, can we purchase preban 5.45 ak’s? What about 7.62x39 ak style others? I know I’m late to the party, but I have the itch to add one to the collection. An in state gun store is working on bringing in 9mm ak style others, so I can always go that route if need be.

There are pre ban norincos in 5.56. Dont know about others in 7.62x39 but I assume they would have to pass the AK test. Dont know about 9mm ak's either though if it worked that would be cool.

The commissioner's letter linked in the preban firearms section at the beginning of this thread is no longer supported by the DESPP and has been taken off their website.

Is there any remaining clear documentation to send to a skeptical out of state seller to verify prebans are still legal?

It is legal for the shipper, as CT law doesn't include them.

It should be ok for the 07 to import, pursuant to CGS § 53-202w(d)(6) & (e)(3)

Pistol lower:
Fixed mag not >10 rounds

Rifle lower:
Fixed mag not >10 rounds
OAL not <30"

Other lower:
Should be gtg, provided you don't meet NFA

Correct. I’m looking to build 2 pistols and a handful of rifles strictly as range toys and do not want to go the sbr or preban route as they will be built with spare parts. I just cannot find an ffl that will transfer only the lower. They will sell a fixed mag “other”, but that is not what I want.

Most shops charge a premium to build others for you and not every barrel is over 12”. Just was trying to find a cheaper way to get lowers for these, but looks like I’ll have to go the other route and sbr some more pre bans.

I have an other with a 12.5 inch barrel. If I bought another upper in 300 blackout and swapped it onto the lower would that be good to go as long as the upper has a vertical foregrip and a barrel length greater than 12 inches? Also, is there a limit to how long the barrel can be or is it only that it can not be shorter than 12 inches?

Current advisement is between 12 and 16.

You could have multiple uppers,

but the warning of constructive possession state or federal wise should be mentioned I guess. As long as you can make it a legal configuration you should be ok

Question for the informed.

As a Correction Officer, the statute reads that I need a letter from my Commissioner to PURCHASE an AR.  If I build one, am I not purchasing.  Legal?

Do I just call SLFU to clarify?

The bolded is what I'm referring to.

The sale of "assault weapons" to me, without written consent from my commissioner is not legal for the Transferee.

I know I’m late to the party on this one, but have you tried Comgraf’s web site for fixed magazine lowers at CT Legal AR’s? Obviously the availability of CT others has made his product niche around here, but he does have fixed mag lowers available on his site with a dealers list. Of course they are a little more costly.

[Last Edit: ThatGuy01] [#35]
As long as you have the suppressor permanently attached to the barrel (thus, unthreaded) it shouldn't be an issue. DWilson MFG in Wisconsin does great work with Rugers, if you have a Ruger upper and a can you want to combine he can combine them and do the weld job on the spot.

Thanks for the replies. I have a target mkii cut down to 4.5” with my srd22x, but I’ve always wanted something integral. Chances are I’ll get another mkii and just cut it down to 2” and see if I can get a shorter can. The gemtech qda is a nice option and as much as I want to go with a full volquartsen pistol, it just makes the oal too much with can.

I have been going over the various CT guns laws and I have a few questions related to 3D printing firearm receivers/frames.

1. Can I legally 3D print an AR style "Other" lower receiver or pistol frame in CT?
2. Do I need to obtain a serial number from the DESPP before printing the receiver/frame?
3. If I do need to obtain a serial number from the DESPP, how is this accomplished? I looked at the "DESPP-0419-C-Unique-Serial-Number-Application-and-Gun-Manufactured-Completion-Notification" form and it does not indicate how to contact the DESPP to get a serial number.
4. Do I need to embed the receiver/frame with "three point seven ounces of material type 17-4 PH stainless steel" since it is made of polymer? Is this the same for AR style "other" lower receivers and pistol frames? Or does adding other metal components like uppers or slides meet the requirements for it to be detectable by a metal detector. I'm probably mixing up the CT state and federal laws.
5. Any other law(s) that I need to look at?

Also, can I legally build an AR style pistol if it has these features?
1. 3D printed AR style lower receiver.
2. Pistol grip.
3. No gas system and barrel gas hole permanently plugged.
4. 7.5" barrel, probably chambered in 300 blackout.
5. Pinned muzzle brake.
5. Rear section of bolt carrier removed so pistol does not need a buffer tube. Bolt carrier would be drilled and tapped to receive a bolt handle. The receiver's buffer tube opening would be capped off.
7. 10 round magazine that would be permanently attached, probably by welding a nut to the magazine latch. I'm making the assumption that the magazine needs to be permanently attached, but if it could be removable, that would be better.

Thanks,
IM

I believe you mail on the bottom half after you complete it. Top half is if you buy an 80% receiver from a gun dealer.

That's not limited to ARs any homemade firearm needs one of these unique serial numbers now
