    I have a new (well about 1 year old, so almost new) Bushy A3 w/ 20" H-Bar and fixed stock. This rifle is great fun to shoot, but I think I'd like to convert it to M4 style. (I'd keep the 20" barrel and furniture in case I want to change back someday). So I came across an ad for a new 16" DPMS barreled upper w/ charging handle, bolt, the whole enchilada for $499, which, given what I've seen lately, seems fair. The ad says "just drop on your pre-ban lower and you're ready to go"... Well here's the question... Should that be telling me something? Are there BATF restrictions against reconfiguring my rifle as described? (I live in DE and could have bought the rifle in M4 config had me dealer had one when I wanted it. In fact, M4 types are sold here all the time). Thanks for any info you acan offer!!

    No ATF restrictions - that ad was probably from someone in New York, where the state law prevents them from putting "assault weapon" features on a post-ban receiver. Your state has no such restrictions - you're good to go.

    No feedback. Perhaps the question isn't clear enough... I saw an ad offering a 16" barreled upper at a reasonable price. The ad also said "just drop on your pre-ban lower and you're ready to go"... Does this mean I shouldn't be adding the barreled action to a relatively new lower? (I'm not sure about the "pre-ban" thing and I don't want to inadvertanly break the law. Thanks!
