Hello everyone...recently I've become very interested in AR-15s only to be saddened to learn that NJ seems to prohibit them to some extent.  Does anyone know which variations I can legally purchase and own in this state?  I know I remember seeing something that looks awfully similar in gun stores but Im not sure what exactly they were.

First welcome to the board!!

Basically any AR that isn't stamped AR15 on the receiver and in post-ban configuration is legal. No bayonet lug, no flashider and no folding or collapsable stock. You can have a muzzle brake.

Where are you from?

If your looking to buy one I can put you in touch with a dealer in Freehold who can order you one. Any make or model. He will only charge you $25.00 for the transfer and $15.00 for the State backround check. Also if you order one from out of state there is no sales tax to pay. Why pay retail?

Hey everyone thanks for the info!  I am moving into Hamilton Twp. in mercer county.  Although I grew up in West Windsor Ive been living in Raleigh NC for the last 4 months.  A job opportunity came up that I could not pass up so I am on my way back to NJ.  The SEBR looks great, I just need to decide exactly what I want now.   Thanks again!

Any firearms which are substantially identical to any of the above firearms; any semiautomatic shotgun with either a magazine capacity exceeding six rounds, a conspicuous pistol grip, or a folding stock; a semi automatic rifle with a fixed magazine capacity exceeding 15 rounds. Any magazine with a capacity greater than fifteen rounds is prohibited, even if there is no semi-automatic firearm to accompany the magazine unless the person has a registered "assault firearm" and the magazine is used for DCM sanctioned shooting matches.

A part or combination of parts to convert or assemble a firearm into an "assault firearm" is also forbidden.

Any "assault firearm" not registered, licensed, or rendered inoperable pursuant to a state police certificate by May 1, 1991, is considered contraband.

Any "assault firearm" which was not owned prior to May 1, 1990, must be licensed. Application is made to the Superior Court for the county in which the person lives or conducts business. The fee is $75. The court must find that the public safety and welfare require the issuance of the license and the person must be qualified to obtain a handgun carrying license. For practical purposes, no one will be issued such a license.

If the owner of an assault firearm which has been registered dies, the owner`s heirs or estate shall have 90 days if unable to get a license to either transfer the assault firearm to any person or firm lawfully entitled to own or possess such firearm; render the assault firearm inoperable; or voluntarily surrender the assault firearm. According to the state police, removal of the firearm from New Jersey to a state where the gun would be legal is also allowed.

If we can get AR clones that are essentially the same as an AR15, couldn't he get the MP5 clones as well as long as the names dont match? On that matter, does "Avtomat Kalashnikov type semi-automatic firearms" blanket-treat everything (regardless if its called an AK, an MAK or a WASR/etc?)? Or can my PCR get a red-nemesis in the near future?

Mags. are blocked to 15 rounds. No bayonet lugs, flashiders or folding stocks.

Welcome to the board!



The sad thing about the SEBR is it says "AR15.com" on the receiver...wouldn't take much imagination on the part of a police officer or DA to have it classified as one of the banned "Assault Weapons" in this state.
