    Assuming the AW ban sunsets on 9/14, I'd like to convert my post-bans to include all of the evil features. However, I do not feel like spending a ton of money to have barrels threaded right-away, and I would anticipate another ban to be implemented soon after the sunset.

    So, it looks like I need to convert everything so they'd be grandfathered in a future ban (assuming the ban is similar to the clinton ban).

    I was thinking that I could drill out a standard A2 flash-hider so that it would slip over the muzzles of various rifles on 9/14. I would then take digital pics, printed them out, and have them notarized with a statement to the extent of "I added a flash-hider on 9/14/04".

    Do you think that this would hold up legally? Would it be better if I added a set screw to really attact it? Would duct tape be good enough? :)

    Does anyone have any better ideas on how to do the conversions quickly and easily? Please keep in mind that this is just for legal reasons and I would not actually shoot the weapon with the slip-on flash suppressor.

    It should be. I'd bet the ATF could charge you if you did that right now.

    It's impossible to tell what the requirements will be for some future, unspecified ban, even if there ever will be one.

    I sure hope as many people will fight any future anti-gun legislation as there are practicing CYA.

    Huh?

    Y'all are way too hung up on tacticality...

    IF we don't get a lot of gnarsty firearms legislation, in 40-50 years, those "post bans" are gonna be worth a lot more than the "pre ban" firearms.

    My "Martha Stewart" project for September will be a bayonet lug,
    made out of a hose clamp for less than 4 bucks.

    heck, if one is bad,
    hows about putting a bunch of bayonet mounts on one rifle?

    i can easily see staggering 4 bayonets around the barrel
    :evil:

    There's a company out there that makes a clamp on bayonet lug for AR-15 barrels of various diameters. Just get the size closest to your barrel and attach it. I would also recommend putting on a forward grip, if it doesn't modify the firearm you own too much. Some of the 'new ban' McCarthy/DiFi legislation does away with bayonet stuff in favor of forward grips and barrel shrounds.

    Bogie- Guns make poor investments. I'd suggest you buys guns as tools or toys and leave your retirement nestegg with a good financial advisor.

    I buy my guns for defense or personal amusement. I want my collectors and target queens to be as historically accurate as possible.... Is that too "tactical" for you? :rolleyes:

    Everyone else, I like the ideas. I think I'll also hose-clamp on a bayonet and a forward grip while I'm slipping on the flash suppressor.

    ...Maybe I can remove the stocks and hook them up to a door hinge, too. :D

    Wow, there's a product I'll never need! :D

    Come 9/14, though, I can see buying a collapsing stock, though! :)

    ahh, but just imagine!
    A 19.95 part that with 2 hex bolts transforms a rifle into an "assault rifle"
    The only thing more silly is to do the same trick with a 2 dollar part from home depot

    i consider the loss of the bayonet mount, symbolic of the emasculation of our gun rights

    Didn't the flintlocks at Concord have blade mounts?

    When we regain the ability to own bayonet lugs,
    we should embrace our freedom and afix a lug to every semiauto mag fed rifle.

    It is for the Children.

    has anyone heard if anybody is going to offer a retrofit kit for post ban rifles? mainly a flash hider that you dont have to have the barrel turned down for? maybe a FH that you can cut threads into the finished diameter of a post ban without having to have the barrel cut? if not HINT HINT!!!

    edit: also a "for show" bayo lug that is attached with a very powerful glue.

    Right now, the only thing I plan on is some high-caps for my 10/22, since I own no other asualt rifle. Maybe a folding stock, too. Just so I can have it in the future.
