Can I legally put a bayonet lug on a Springfield Armory M1A?

    Springfield's M1A Standards come with a flash suppressor with no bayonet lug. I want to replace it with a NM flash suppressor with a bayonet lug from Fulton Armory.

    I don't live in an AWB state. Springfield Armory utilizes some imported parts.

    Do I have to be concerned about 922(r)?

    The gun won't have a pistol grip.

    I'm not even sure what parts are foreign made on these. I know that the following are US for sure: The receiver, barrel, trigger housing, trigger, sear, hammer, disconnector, butt stock, forearm, magazine body, follower, and floorplate. I'm not sure about the handguard, gas piston, operating rod, bolt, and a couple more things.

    Thanks.

    M1As are not listed in 925(d)3 so none of this crap applies.

    Something called an "M14S type" is on the list. I am pretty sure that's just Norincos and PolyTecs.

    Yes, I believe the M14S refers to the Polytech only.

    ^ That was in response to "Why?" for the ban on M14's only. If the "Why?" was for "Why would you want to put that on?" Then I have no response.

    Wasn't trying to hurt any of your feelings :)

    How is anyone going to know what parts are made where? Other than a receiver is "made in China" written on flash suppressors, stocks, pistol grips, etc?
