The whole problem with this is a real criminal won't get caught up with this crap, it will be the unsuspecting novice or someone that thinks they know the law like Seventeen.How many times does this question have too be debated?
Yes you can, the Blue Label Colt is pre-ban because it had:If I owned a Blue lable colt Match H-bar w/o Bayo lug, but with flash hider manufactured in, lets say.. 1991 or so... I can't put a tele-stock and bayo lug upper on it? Interesting.
Come on now... There is no need for any "spots" on the form. The factory invoice will tell how a new weapon was configuration when shipped. And the average dealer will also remember if he sold a 10/22 with a folding stock because it would sell for considerably more than one without a folding stock.sold in a pre-ban form. I fill out a few of these and do not remember any spots that ask if it is an a pre-ban or assault form or if it has a folding stock.
There is no gray area it is a felony to "change it into a pre-ban configuration". If the ATF can make their case is another thing, but it is against the law not a gray area.Yes, you are not supposed to change it into a pre-ban configuration if it was not already in that configuration.....this is a grey area,
