If you were to take a post-ban AR and permanently attach a legal silencer, would that rifle then be an assault rifle and therefore illegal under the 94 law?

The BATF seems to think so. . . . They'll throw you in jail for it, even if there isn't a law that says so.

Yep....

www.gem-tech.com/m4-96d.html

Small print: "POST-BAN WEAPON NOTE concerning mounting the M4-96D or other sound suppressor on a so-called "post ban" assault weapon: BATF has ruled that a sound suppressor functions as an efficient flash hider. Although a non-slotted bi-lock can be permanently mounted on most .223 caliber weapons, attachment of the suppressor itself may place the user in violation of federal law, depending on the type and number of other cosmetic changes to the underlying semi-automatic weapon (pistol grip, folding stock, etc.)."

Than's alright, I just read a number of debates over at www.biggerhammer.net/stoner/wwwboard/

Quite a ways down....

See all the posts about using a silencer on the SR-25 Mk 11 Mod 0! Note, this is obviously a POST BAN but yet guys are talking about getting a silencer for it. Just so long as they don't get caught I guess?

I discovered the thread too late to add much, but worth the read just the same!
