I know you will be able to have evil features like flash hidder, folding stock, new production hi cap mag's, and a bayonet lug, but, can I then thread my barrel? Also, as it stands now you can put a drop-in auto sear into preban AR15's; will you be able to do the same with all AR15's if the ban sunsets, or can you only put the auto-sears into pre-1994 AR15's?

Edited to add: As I understand it, the DIAS is considered a machine gun by itself, so you can put it in a postban and while the DIAS is in the post ban it can have all of the evil features you want including a seven inch barrel, because while the DIAS is in it it is not a semiauto assault weapon, it is a machine gun, which is regulated very differently than a semi auto.

Correct. There are basically 2 classes of transferrable MGs: Pre68 Transferables - These were manufactured "as" machine guns and include vintage Thompsons, Stens, MP40s, original M-16s, original AK-47s, etc. The receiver constitutes the machine gun. In 1968 the importation and registration of machine guns was banned. Pre86 Title II Transferable Conversions - These are guns that began life as a semi auto and were legally converted to and registered as a machine gun by virture of a registered sear or a reconfigured and registered receiver. These include AR-15 to M-16, HK94 to MP5 and semi AK47 to full auto AK47 registered conversions. Most modern registered MGs are actually Title II conversions. Very few genuine MP5s were imported prior to 1968 (thus being transferable to individuals and not dealer only pre may samples) and are worth 4x as much as the 10,000 sear conversion MP5s. But back on topic, IF you have a registered M16 conversion sear you can put it in ANY ar15 pre or post ban. Once installed the rifle is now a registered MG and can have as many named features as you like. It actually makes sense to install in a postban (with the correct preban configration upper) and save the wear and tear on the preban rifle.

Can you? Yes to all of the above. But, [b]will[/b] you be able to? That's another question. I think there might be a problem adding the bayonet lug. Since it's part of the front sight tower, and the front sight tower has to be matched or indexed with the barrel, there could be a problem... Unless you want to install one of the two-piece bayo lugs that clamps on to the barrel.

Once this ban goes away '94 will no longer be in guns owners vocabulary. All AW will be the SAME. Now, the DIAS, of course you can put it in your rifle as long as it is registered. Im not sure what the going rate is for DIAS though. The question I have is,... say I do put a RDIAS in my AR it is now registered right? So now, if I want to make the same rifle SBR do I have to register and pay excise tax for that too? Just curious....

ERm, not sure what you are asking but... The RDIAS is the 'machine gun'. It makes any rifle it is installed in temporarily a 'machine gun'. A 'machine gun' is a specific item in the NFA. A 'machine gun' is not an SBR, or a Rifle, or a Pistol, or a AOW. So while thre RDIAS is in the rifle no you dont have to do paperwork to 'SBR' (or worry about 'evil features') the 'temporarily not a rifle but a machine gun'. Now if you take the RDIAS out of a firearm that without the RDIAS would be considered something other than a 'normal' rifle or pistol (ie, if it would be considered a SBR, or a AW, or AOW - and if it would be considered a pistol it better not have EVER had a shoulder stock, in any form), you have committed a federal crime.
