Need your opinion.

Me and my friend saw this post ar15 in our local gun show,

1) Screw on baynet lug adapter (do not even know where he got it) which allow baynet be used.

2) Screw on muzzle brake (but it shall look like A2 Bird Cage Flash to me).

3) Fixed CAR Stock.

Can we still say this rifle is legal?

Bayonet lug? No! Non-pinned muzzlebrake? No! Fixed collapsible stock? Yes! Survey Sez! NO!

Well, at least that last thing isn't a bad deal for him.

Yes, the rifle is 100% legal.

How do you figure that?

Question... If you have a non threaded barrel, does the muzzle break need to be permanently attached? Why?

Because it is not illegal to make an AR15 type firearm with the features described. Colt, Bushmaster, etc., just about every major manufacturer, do it everyday. Of course, the 1994 Crime Act (along with various state and local laws), regulates WHO may OWN/POSSESS the firearm, but the firearm itself is 100% legal, and that was the question asked.

It could possibly be legal. A screw on mb is LEGAL if the barrel isn't threaded. The non detachable bayo lug can be detached for legality. The stock is non collapsible and legal. CRC

No, you do not need to have a brake/compensator permenantly attatched if there are no threads under the barrel that could accept a flash supressor/grenade launcher. I remember seeing a company that used a different thread pattern than the norm. I'm not sure if they ever got it off the ground. In either case you can buy a brake/compensator with set screws and be perfectly legal affixing that to a plain crowned muzzle.

No it does not because a post ban barrel can not accept a flash hider or suppressor based on the std. 1/2 28 TPI threads.
