With or without pinned mag I think technically you would be creating an AR type Assault weapon. If it were that easy every gun shop in CT would be selling AR's with bullet buttons or mag locks.

edit: Here is the line of the law that is relevant.

"Rifles. The bill expands the banned weapons to include the following semiautomatic centerfire rifles, or copies or duplicates with the capability of any such rifles, that were in production before or on the effective date of the bill........."

We have an earlier thread where the AR MR2 is discussed. I would suggest reading that for more information on how such a product may be a no go here in CT under the new laws.

The problem is you are creating an "assault weapon" post 4/4/13 the minute you turn the unregistered Stag .22LR lower into a centerfire semiautomatic rifle. The AR-15 is banned by name. In addition the Stag .22LR has several parts removed or replaced (supposedly the gas tube is removed and buffer tube is blocked or modified) so one cannot simply stick a centerfire upper and or use a centerfire BCG and have it fire normally.

Buffer tube has aluminum piece of round stock in it.  , gas tube is there, 22 cmmg bcg.  I had not seen the thread that was previously discussed.   I want to be a law abiding citizen and follow the rules so that's why I asked this question seeing I can get around it. And it's not an stag-15.  Lower says stag 22. No where on it is ar15, as well as it wouldn't be an assault rifle since it has no detatchable magazine anymore, and it does not have a fixed magazine of 10+rounds.  So all that said, I don't see how this would be illegal. Unless it falls under the "assembling" part of the law?

The rifle is banned by action as well. Upper and lower receiver. The only way this would fly if the mag was permanently attached to the lower

Doesn't matter what is marked on the lower. It's still an ar lower. The law bans all features of a center fire ar
