A friend of mine(in PA)who has a Pre-ban Colt AR, wants to be able to shoot his AR here in NJ. I told him I'd look into it. He is changing the out the non-PC trigger and selecter switch for something more "PC" and getting a Post-ban NM DCM Upper. Is there anything else he would need to know that would allow him to make the transformation to a "NJ legal" rifle? Thanks -rad

what would a regular trigger and selector of an ar have anything to do with a PC rifle. is he changing it out for a match trigger? waht are the NJ laws concerning the AR weapon series?

My friend's brother Willed him the rifle. He was a Green Beret in VN and made some "mods" to the rifle. My friend wants to get it into a Post ban config so he doesn't get into any trouble.

Someone coming to NJ from PA to shoot, usually it's the other way around. A preban lower that has not been modified which has a post ban upper would be legal in NJ.Why all the bother to shoot in NJ? He's better off in PA.

If it says "AR-15" on the receiver it's banned by name in NJ. If it says "Match Target" it's specifically allowed. "Sporter" is not mentioned. Basically, post-ban configuration all the way. I'm still looking for the link to the site that describes this in detail. I'll update if/when I find it. Here's the NRA link. [url]http://www.nraila.org/GunLaws.asp?FormMode=Detail&R=NJ[/url] Still looking for the other one. Here's the NJ statutes link [url]http://www.njleg.state.nj.us/cgi-bin/om_isapi.dll?clientID=100919&depth=2&expandheadings=off&headingswithhits=on&infobase=statutes.nfo&softpage=TOC_Frame_Pg42[/url] This is what I was looking for. [url]http://www.homestead.com/njccw/njgunlaws.html[/url] . There's another link near the bottom. Note that this page does not address the new magazine rules change.

Thanks for all of the info. I think I have convinced my friend to get a 2002 LEGP instead. [:D]
