Question 1, I want to discuss the NJ legality(assuming everyone would agree its federally legal and still considered a rifle) of putting a pistol brace on an AR rifle.
Assume a 16" bbl (pinned brake obv.).
Curious mostly about fixed braces, specifically the tailhook mod 1(https://gearheadworks.com/product/tailhook-mod-1-4/).
Built on a stripped lower, so it would initially transfer as other.
NJ law says that a rifle is designed to be shouldered, and in my mind that makes a brace questionable. However, If I intend/build a rifle to be shouldered and fired with two hands what do we end up with?
Question 2, I want to discuss the federal legality of swapping uppers on that lower and ill give a situation. If illegal, pinpoint at what point it becomes illegal.
Assume a state where AR pistols are legal (Not NJ).
First build an AR pistol, lets say a 12" bbl upper with same brace and lower from Q1.
Swap only the upper to 16" bbl to build an AR rifle, (then potentially bring the rifle back to NJ if Q1 is legal).
Go back to state where AR pistols are legal and swap back to 12" bbl to build a pistol again.
This should be federally legal as I read it. Rifle first, rifle forever, pistol first, you can switch back and forth. (https://www.atf.gov/file/55526/download)
@USRifle30Cal Les said it was built in 03, setup for 185 grain semi wad cutters, it should have a 13 pound spring install, They said for me to shoot reg ball Ammo I would just need to replace spring to a 18lb. I can finally picked the gun up tomorrow. I ordered two boxes of ammo so I’m gunna try it an see what it’s got.
@Pizza Bob I’ve always Wanted a case hardened revolver, so I figure why not build something that’s pretty cool that I can shoot, I know I’m gunna dump money into it but it won’t gain or lose valve, an it will be something that’s built to what i like. I have a couple pythons that I won’t shoot, an just picked up two mint 29-3’s one of which was worked. I will reach out to them an see if it’s something they would want to take on. Thanks
and lack of info from LEOs... no information on shooters and no info on type of rifle except "high powered rifles".
Are they preparing the semi-auto ban in Trenton tonight so they can vote on it tomorrow. Famous line: "Never let a crisis go to waste".
