It would probably pay to do a little research, and see how much your Pre-Ban Lower Receiver is worth VS the complete Pre-Ban gun in States like NY, and NJ where the Ban is still in place, but buying and selling of Pre-Ban Lower Receivers and complete guns is still allowed.
Then, you would have a boat load of money, and be free to build an new gun with a OLL and an upper with whatever features you want.
I thought about that - just difficult because I'm here and I'm not likely to go back for a bit. Also, since the rifle was purchased in VA, then taken to NY after I left the Navy, then stored in CT - I'm not sure what hoops I'd have to jump through as far as registration goes - especially since I'm now a CA resident.
I suppose I couuld make some bank right now if I mailed all the parts back and tried to sell it at a gun show there. Tempting.
