I am in the process of trying to find out the laws of Connecticut as far as selling a pre-ban AR-15 to someone who lives in Connecticut. Does anyone happen to know the laws reguarding that state?

No Colt Sporter or Colt AR-15 marked AR's allowed in the state.

Any other brand with a FH and Bayo Lug is OK as long as it is preban

Thank you very much!!! No it's an Eagle Arms/Armalite pre-ban upper that I was selling. The laws in my state are hard enough to keep track of let alone other states. Thank you to all of you! Twitchy

BTT. What I would like to see before buying a preban rifle in this state, is a written and sworn statement by the DOJ, ATF, etc. saying that it is legal.

I know it is, but I'd want it for extra insurance. Can't ever get too careful in this bloody state.

Your state laws sounds as messed up as the ones here in Colorado. "Assault" rifles are not legal to own in the city of Denver but anywhere else in the state is ok. Even Denver based FFL dealers are not allowed to to transfers of such firearms or related equiptment. Sure makes my head spin trying to keep up with all the "laws"!

good luck with that one...

The ATF and DOJ have nothing to do with the CT law since it is a state law, so that eliminates those letters.

Maybe the DPS or the State Police, but not sure if they know what exactly the law is either.

That's what I was worried about. DPS don't know a damn thing as to the laws that are on the books right now. Most of the state cops don't, either, from what I've seen.

One time I called the weapons unit to ask them a question and the sargent said I don't think thats legal. I asked so your not sure then. His reply That they have a state reg book on all the laws and you can ask for a copy.True story .Right now it escapes me what my question was

I purchased two bushy lowers (preban) that are verified by Bushmaster as preban and having been originally shipped as complete rifles.

As long as they are confirmed preban by the manufacturer, there is no problem.

Cool. Want to sell one to me?

Or at the very least point me to someone in CT I can do a face-to-face sale with?

No Kidding! The lawsuit is still pending and being argued over. We all know that will take forever! Maybe my kids kids grandkids will see the light at the end of that tunnel.

I just bought a RRA 20" and the requirement that I was told was a pinned flash hider and a pinned buttstock.

Fixed it for you.

My A2 flash hider had to be perm pinned, are you sure?

Blue Genes,

The CT laws states that you cannot have a FH on any semi auto that takes a detachable mag.

Also, all postban semi auto (with detach mags) must have pinned comps, no flash hiders.

What you have is either a real A2 that is illegal or a A2 look a like that is actually a comp and does not hide the muzzle flash at all. either way, it must be pinned.

Here is an excerpt of the law
A semi-auto, detach magazine fed rifle would be considered an assault weapon (as per CT State Law) if two or more of these evil features are present:

(A) A semiautomatic rifle that has an ability to accept a detachable magazine and has at least two of the following:

(i) A folding or telescoping stock;

(ii) A pistol grip that protrudes conspicuously beneath the action of the weapon;

(iii) A bayonet mount;

(iv) A flash suppressor or threaded barrel designed to accommodate a flash suppressor; and

(v) A grenade launcher; or
