View Full Version : Any legal issues with this?

Are there any legal issues if I wanted to buy an upper from someone who had it on a registered aw? It would be off a colt sporter and I would put it on a double star lower as long as this isnt illegal. Thanks.

no problems, I have colt uppers on a few of my AR's.

be carefull not to leave the flash hider on it if your doing a featurless build.

As long as there isn't a suppressor on it or a flash hider (if you will have a detachable mag) (either which you could solve by removing.)
The upper itself is not illegal and are swappable/interchangable.

His receiver is the registered AW.

Why would a flash hider be a problem. Cant you build a ca legal ar with a flash hider with a fixed mag? And if it still is a problem, if i take it off do i have to turn down the threads or can i add a muzzlebreak.

With a fixed mag yes.
