      I'm confused. Pre-safe you were allowed to change out a OEM muzzle brake, compensator or flash hider for a different one. Right?

      If it was registered, I thought there are no restrictions other than the mags and whatever rules existed before (like min. barrel length).

      My only concern with pin/weld is the gas block is now permanent lol.

      If i ever have a problem the barrel/gas block and muzzle device is screwed

      It was always pinned and welded, so as far as I understand it the SAFE act registration didn't change that.
      Two piece gas blocks are available, but how often do you plan on changing it?

    A few questions:
    Is it a stripped lower? Why would you register a stripped lower that isn't built yet? I didn't even know you could.

    Or is it a complete lower? What "features" does it have? Don't they describe the features on the registration, at the time of registration? Isn't that so the feature set cannot be changed nor added to?

    The muzzle brake is on the upper. I don't understand. What exactly do you have?

      Even if it is registered, you can't have a collapsible stock and a flash suppressor. Weren't those the rules pre-unsafe? I'm so damn confused.

        Not a lawyer - but I believe a registered AW under unSAFE is an AW regardless of how many evil features it has.

          If you have a registered lower it can be built with all features. It cannot have any nfa features (sbr, suppressor). A stripped lower could have been registered, as it is legally considered the firearm. While i am no fan of registration, you may as well make the most of it and have all the dastardly features you can.

            Doesn't the registration contain a description of the weapon, and its features, at the time of registration? I don't know but some people posted samples of registration forms at the time.

            The form didn't have that much detail but you can modify it in any event. Once it is 'evil' it's ok to make it 'more evil' as long as you don't make it 'really really evil' by chopping the barrel into an SBR.

            Also, mattyj513, a lower alone is not a firearm in the eyes of the Laws of the State of New York. While I'm sure lowers could and were registered under SAFE, technically they were not evil assault weapons unless they were built into a functional configuration. This is one of the several important points of distinction between Federal and New York State law and leads to a lot of weird results.

            Yes I'm aware of the nys and fed distinction of a firearm when it comes to lowers. Opens up another large grey area in regards to compliance, aws, and constructive intent. Technically you could take a nys deemed aw ar15, remove the upper, and even if the lower has a pg and collapsible stock it isn't an assault weapon, as without the upper attached it is incapable of semi automatic fire and thus exempt. Wouldn't want to defend myself in a liberal ny court over any of this.

          Was this a stripped lower that was registered (with NYS)?

            As I understand it if you registered your rifle as a assault weapon , you can have every evil feature.
            I have even called the state police many times, and asked them that same question.
            Every time they say yes.
            If you upper has a pinned muzzle break, you can unpin it and change it to a flash hider.

              Depends on what your betters say.
              id send an email to Cumos office asking what you were allowed

                If it is registered ...you can have ALL features regardless of what features it had when you registered it .... IT'S NOT AN ASSAULT WEAPON IF IT'S REGISTERED .

                      It legally is an assault weapon, but you're allowed to have it.

                      Hence it being called "assault weapon registration"
