    Is their any restrictions on SBRing (besides the tax and paperwork) a semi-auto rifle with a detachable mag and one assault weapon feature? Like, is the SB an evil feature?

    It is perfectly legal to make a post-ban semi-automatic rifle into a SBR. It will still be covered under the AW ban, so it can only have it's one evil feature.

    Remember also that you cannot attach a pre-ban style flash suppressor to it after SBR'ing it. You can permanently attach an ATF approved muzzle brake

    You know, I've heard that but do you have a reference that says that. I thought that once you made it an NFA weapon, it no longer fell under the AWB.

    " I thought that once you made it an NFA weapon, it no longer fell under the AWB."

    It still has to follow the AWB,but as a NFA weapon it does't have to
    follow the import parts rule of the 1989 ban.I am waiting for a form
    1 to be approved for a SW-5( i know),but i have been ordering hk parts
    to swap out once it is approved.I will only be using the SW-5 receiver.
    I even have a MP-5 three lug barrel since the AWB says no threads
    the lugs are allowed(still no suppressor until next year i hope)

    Depending on what you are trying to make, you can buy a SW-5 new stripped receiver or one of the SP-89 clones they make and register it as an AOW and put a vertical foregrip on it. IIRC, AOWs are not covered by the AW ban, so you can add threaded barrels and suppressors to them.
