NFA Guide for AR15s

The rules are indeed confusing, particularly if you want to dabble in the NFA world. This graphic guide should offer some help. Of course, be sure to check out the rules for yourself.

    #11 seems out of date.

    • Erin says:

      That was my thought. Last I read is it could be shouldered.

      • Bowman says:

        Check the date at the top of the pic. It’s dated June of 2016. The white letter allowing Sig braces to be shouldered came out after that.

    It is time to revisit the NFA altogether. Invalid doesn’t begin to describe how silly this is.

      “A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” – The 2nd Amendment, as ratified by the States and authenticated by Thomas Jefferson, then-Secretary of State

      Shall Not = NO EXCEPTIONS

      Every gun law since NFA 1934 is invalid.

      No discussion, no debate , no compromise.

    Shows how silly it all is, and how regulation is often counterproductive and always outdated. No way for a bureaucracy to keep up with industry, even more so when industry is flexible, adaptive, well-financed, and making in demand products. Write a rule, watch the industry overcome it with a slight modification.

    SBR laws are ridiculous in any view, given that rifle-caliber/large frame pistols are “a thing.” Clearly defeats the intent, purpose, spirit, and “need” for the pointless oversight, which comes at taxpayer cost.

    This chart brings to mind graffiti I once read in a port-a-john in Iraq the quote: “if you have to explain the name of your unit, you’re a pogue.”

    If laws governing possession of an item are so convoluted that one needs a graphic training aid for explanation, then that law is without merit.

    Has there been any movement with the current administration to reverse 41F? Or modify it in any way? Seems it only took the Obama administration an executive order to put it in place, what’s stopping the current supposedly gun friendly administration from reversing it?

  6. PPGMD says:

    Considering a sub-16″ barrel alone as constructive possession is really stretching the few cases wins that they have. AFAIK all the cases they’ve won using constructive possession involved showing the jury that it took seconds with no tools to put a sub-16″ upper on a rifle. But a barrel takes special tools, and at least 30 minutes of time.

    What if you have a partially assembled pistol grip lower, an A2 fixed buttstock rifle, an upper with no side button, 2 barrels shortened with a hacksaw, a relic flintlock blunderbuss, a hand-guard vertical bipod grip, 2 threaded flash-hiders and 4) 30 mag clips in your safe at the same time – is that OK?
