What is the law on threaded barrels on a AR? I remember reading something about pistols with threads is illegal, but what about fullsize AR's?

If I bought one with threads and wrenched on a flash suppressor am I good to go?

Threads are legal on registered AW, fixed and "featureless" detachable magazine OLL rifles. Only fixed magazine builds & registered AW rifles can use flash suppressors.

Only fixed magazine and registered AW pistols can have threaded barrels. If you have a pistol that's not registered as an AW and uses detachable mags, you can not have threads (it's a "feature")
