  1. Agree with this completely I don't have a pistol brace because I care about paying the $200.. I have a pistol brace because filing NFA paperwork is annoying.. and additionally.. keeping something like my Scorpion as a pistol has other added benefits over NFA.. I can bring it to any state that honors my carry permit.. and keep it loaded in the vehicle like a pistol.. technically I can do the same in PA with a SBR.. but a pistol with a brace is less of a gray area..
  2. you hit the nail on the head.. will there be further restriction? may you not be able to SBR one day? sure.. all possible.. will they take SBRs on a federal level? unlikely... so moving to a more regulated category IMO at least.. moves the gun out of the "look at what everyone is doing" category..
  3. I know its not an option in NJ.. but I am seriously considering getting a stamp for my two "pistol brace guns" I almost feel like NFA items being already restricted are less likely to take center stage..
  4. I mean if you absolutely had to.. you could cut off the brace and leave the extension chunk on the back and use it to mount any sling you wanted.. I got these they work really well.. https://hbindustries.net/store/shop/cz-scorpion-evo3-ambi-thumb-safety-selectors/?attribute_configuration=Pair+(Left+%26+Right)
  5. that's the biggest concern I have with the whole brace opinion thing.. there used to be this thing called a bump stock.. and the original opinion is they were fine.. then one day.. they magically weren't..
  6. Comments made about NFA are not relevant.. federal law.. my comments come from reading NJ law literally word for word.. is it illegal to possess parts that can be assembled into an “assault weapon”.. per my reading yes.. is a AR stock a stock? Yes.. does it stop being a part once it is on a rifle? No.. If you take a flash hider.. and put it on an AR.. it’s still a flash hider.. a single individual part.. when you say “no you are wrong it’s ok” that’s fine but what in the literal law makes it OK? Unfortunately nothing I am reading.. Your comment about the vertical grip is an incorrect comparison.. the law is about having parts that can be assembled INTO a firearm.. it says nothing about it being illegal to have a gun that can be prohibited in the removal of a part..
  7. you are only reading half.. 2C 39:1 w (5) A part or combination of parts designed or intended to convert a firearm into an assault firearm, or any combination of parts from which an assault firearm may be readily assembled if those parts are in the possession or under the control of the same person. I like to read and understand the law as it relates to guns.... if that does not interest you this thread is not for you.. I am simply thinking out loud about a potential problem with the law as it is written in regards to these new guns..
  8. An assembled rifle is literally a collection of parts.. the definition could not be any more fitting.. as stated.. when the government does not define something the standard definition applies.. yes... a rifle is a rifle as defined.. but it does not change the fact that it is made of components.. or PARTS... the government offers no guidance on the matter so there would be no reason to think otherwise.. part /pärt/ noun plural noun: parts 1. a piece or segment of something such as an object, activity, or period of time, which combined with other pieces makes up the whole. "divide the circle into three equal parts" 2. some but not all of something. "the painting tells only part of the story"
  9. I think the point is arguing that a gun is not parts readily available for your use is a stretch... a battery does not stop being a battery simply because it is in your laptop.. a piston does not stop being a piston because it is in an engine.. a stock does not stop being a stock because its on a rifle.. a bolt carrier does not stop being a bolt carrier because its in a rifle..
  10. now you are getting carried away.. lets not forget who the jury will be.. insert prosecutor standing in front of "non-gun" people popping out two pins and swapping others.. and then talking about how you possessed illegal assault weapons of war..
  11. you are on shaky ground here.. why would they approve it? because the weapon in itself is not an assault weapon nor does it have the capacity to be converted into one.. if your average soccer mom went out and purchased one of these.. and it was the only AR she owned.. no problem.. legal within the law.. the gun in itself is legal.. my concern is when you have other ARs present.. is NJSP going to follow your home from the range and raid your house? will it ever matter? no.. of course not.. well unlikely at least.. the question for discussion is.. does possession of a standard AR15 carbine AND one of these new guns put you in position to be charged with 2C 39:1w (5) A part or combination of parts designed or intended to convert a firearm into an assault firearm, or any combination of parts from which an assault firearm may be readily assembled if those parts are in the possession or under the control of the same person. my concern with the verbiage is that it specifically says any combination of parts... from which an assault firearm may be readily assembled.. yes it is true a standard ar15 is a rifle.. which by most rational people is a combination of parts.. an AR upper and lower come apart with two pull pins.. my concern is that most rational people would come to the conclusion that having both guns means you absolutely do have an assortment of parts that could be readily assembled into an assault firearm.. there is no machining involved.. no welding.. no additional parts needed.. you have enough parts in your possession to readily assemble a gun that would be prohibited.. which by definition sounds like it satisfies a violation of the law...
  12. So it is technically illegal but no one cares? or there is some reason it is not a violation?
  13. So hopefully I am wrong.. but.. a discussion on FB lead to something.. YES NJ says the new non-NFA firearm things are OK and are approving them.. but I see a problem... maybe this was covered already but.. If you have a normal AR and one of these new sub 16in ARs how are you not guilty of: 2C 39:1 w (5) A part or combination of parts designed or intended to convert a firearm into an assault firearm, or any combination of parts from which an assault firearm may be readily assembled if those parts are in the possession or under the control of the same person.
  14. you can get stencils by the millions on eBay or amazon... one color down..then stencils.. next color down.. then stencils.. third color down.. etc.. wait till dry and carefully peel off stencil.. I didn't care too much about it being pretty.. I just wanted to break up the shape of the gun so I used various thickness string. but same idea..
  15. oh wait we are talking camo? LOL
