I plan on building my AR 15 from the ground up but I'm having issues trying to understand all the laws that deal with assault weapons is it legal to build and AR 15 with pre ban parts (can I use barrels with bayonet lugs) I know I sound like I'm some idiot with a gun but all my dealings until recent were military related so I never had to worry about gun laws any thoughts?

What state are you in?

are you in a awb state? ct, ma, ny and several others still have awb in place. basically, flash hider,threaded barrel, bayonet lug, folding stock could be issues. ct doesn't restrict mag capacity, others require mags to be made before '94 ban.

if you are not in a restricted state, then you can dress up as you please. if not and you want to use the restricted features, then you have to have a lower that was delivered as a full rifle before the ban was put in place. basically--increases the cost by 1.5-2 times. :banghead:

To my knowledge there is no parts ban of any kind in Texas. The Federal ban expired in 2004. So, order whatever you like and assemble it as you see fit. You could go to the trouble of ordering "pre-ban" labelled items, but they're probably unnecessarily expensive.

in free states i do not understand that obsession with "pre ban" parts...like the guy at the gun show the other day who wanted 1500 bucks for a "pre ban" AK

Yeah, any non-M16 part is okay in Texas. Pre-ban, post-ban, doesn't matter.

pikid, anybody can look for a sucker when putting an asking price on something. But there is the asking price and the taking price. Depends on how hungry the seller is--and, sometimes, just how much he actually knows.

But the OP's question has been answered...
