    No it doesn't but it does limit the other features he can have. Read the stickies regarding the NY AWB.

    Technically it doesn't as long as he doesn't plan on having a pistol grip. I can't see that happening though!

    Sorry, I should have been more specific. I just assume that everyone knows the laws to the AR15's. This whole rifle will built up to NYS law. I was planning on showing the process through the build. The collapsible stock will be pinned, bayonet lug will be cut off, muzzle break will be welded. Still confused on the whole muzzle break/flash suppressor thing though, what i can and can not have. But that can be figured out as i move along.

    In general a FH will have an open end. A muzzle brake will have a hole in the end about the size of the bore. Since the ATF doesn't classify them any more you kind of have to go by what the manufacturer markets them as.

    Thank you very much For clarifying. Can you have either or as long as they are welded? Or is it one or the other? Im excited.

    Flash hiders are on the list of evil things so if you have a pistol grip on your gun you can't have one. Pinning it on is what "removes" the threads on the barrel (also on the list) with either muzzle device.

    If you are looking for a real nice stock at a good price point, it is hard to beat the new Rock River Operator stock. We have used it on a couple of builds, and our customers have loved it.

    Cerbeus, when you're looking at lower parts kits take a look at Rock River's 2-stage trigger. It costs a bit more but I really like it. Also, if you order from RRA's website you can upgrade the standard pistol grip to an Ergo grip for a couple bucks more. I find the Ergo grip to be very comfortable. Allstar might be able to save you some cash.
    Keep us posted on you're build.

    We are starting to see this happen more and more in New York. Replace the pistol grip with something that's not a pistol grip and you can have a different evil feature. In this case the bayonet lug:


    The pistol grip replacement here is the Exile Machine Hammerhead.

    I prefer having a pistol grip before any other "evil" features. Just my opinion.
    As far as I'm aware NY has not approved the use of any magazine lock to remove the detachable mag stipulation of the AWB. But I could be wrong.

    Pistol grip is definitely a popular feature. We are selling into NY so there are folks who want to go with zero evil features or choose a different evil feature. Most popular evil feature next to the pistol grip has been the collapsible stock. But there could be guys who have a nice bayonet collection and want to show those off. It's great to have options.

    Thanks for the comments and advice everyone. Its much appreciated! I'm actually going to just get the basic parts kit for now then change out the grip to a more comfortable one and the trigger to the gold PACT trigger i think.

    I was actually looking at that rock river operator stock. I'm just not sure yet. I see a few like that one that sparks my interest also.

    Im trying to think about what upper what i wanna go with. I'm also debating on getting the lower, barrel and upper Duracoated in a olive drab and having everything else black. I was looking for a color reference and i found one just like what i wanna do but i want a different olive. more like the third picture olive more extreme not so muted/close to the black.

    Allstar, do you guys weld the muzzle break on the barrel also? and how much around? I'd love to come out there but its like a 3 hour drive..

    If you get whats in the picture, you'll get the reciever extention (buffer tube). If it doesnt come with a tube it should say what size it need to fit with. Both size tubes have the same size threads, either will screw into you're reciever.

    You can buy the buffer tube and stock completely seperate or together. You just need to make sure both are commercial or both are mil-spec...
