    AFAIK, this does not require the actual text of the ruling to be finalized.

    Here is the question: I have several AR-Lowers (or AK for that matter) and several AR Uppers. The lowers are both 'rifle' lowers with conventional stocks and 'pistol' lowers with braces. I have one pistol lower without a brace. The uppers are both rifle uppers with 16+ " barrels as well as pistol uppers with sub 16" barrels. All pistol uppers have red dots on them, no scopes. All rifle uppers have scopes. I do not have any NFA-approved items and I am not submitting NFA forms at this time.

    The question is, in their disassembled form, am I legal ? Ie. I could obviously assemble SBR configurations which would be illegal. I could also assemble legal items (I do have one un-braced pistol lower). Does any of this make a difference ? Could I just leave everything unassembled and be legal ?

    First, until a statute or regulation has been actually adopted in its final form, it’s pointless to try to assess whether something in particular, especially if complex, is “legal.”

    Second, the OP’s question is sufficiently complex and unique to the OP, that he should consult his own lawyer.
