Ok, I know that flash suppressors, bayonet lugs, collapsing stocks, hi-cap mags, and threaded barrels would make a return if the ban sunset. What else have I been missing all these years?

That's about it. You would also be able to make AR pistols weighing over 50 ounces again. The prohibition on importing "non-sporting" firearms would still be in place, so many guns like H&Ks would still be locked out unless they meet the "minimum parts count". That allows "American" copies of guns that cannot be imported.

States like **********, that have their own "assault weapon" ban would still be left out in the cold.

pistols with foreend grips

Those too, if vertical foregrips. AOWs. "Shrouds" around the barrel would come back though.

Pistols with a stock! (?)
I think we can just dream on.:( It sounds like it will never sunset. GWB says he supports extending the ban.:( :(

GWB says he supports extending the ban. Well, they can't "extend it" because it sunsets. However, call me cinical, but I just can't see them not re-inventing it. It will probably be done subtly after all the hub-bub is over.

when HK opens its US plant, then they are no longer importing

a US, AR mag fed, G-36 would sell well

(02) How does the law define the term "semiautomatic assault weapon?"
The term "semiautomatic assault weapon" is defined to include 19 named
models of firearms and semiautomatic rifles, semiautomatic pistols, and
semiautomatic shotguns that have at least 2 of the features specified in the
law. Frames or receivers for firearms are not regulated as semiautomatic
assault weapons, since they could be assembled as a firearm other than the 19
named models of firearms. Likewise, frames or receivers are not semiautomatic
assault weapons under the "features" test of the law because they do not yet
have the features necessary to bring them within the definition.

I have a California specific question -

If the AW ban sunsets, then can I buy like AR uppers with flash suppressors, bayo holders, and slap on a collapsible stock? Basically can I take my AR and configure it to "pre-ban" status?

Nope. All of the state laws still apply.
