    I know that "Pre-Ban" firearms (such as a Colt AR-15) were still allowed to be transferred after the 1994 ban went into effect and that these guns can be identified by serial number.

    But since the Ban sunsetted in 2004, does it even mean anything anymore when it comes to "Pre-Ban" guns?

    is there still pre-ban post ban gun laws? you bet, in the great state of NY the citizen have to buy old and over priced "pre-ban" mags if they want something over ten rounds. why? becuase the NY "politrickers" can't trust thier flock with more than 10 rounds, bayonet lugs, threaded barrels or flash suppressors. if you want any of that stuff in the great state of NY you have to buy over priced firearms that were made and or imported before the infamous 1994 date. Why? Because the great leaders feel those are unsafe and evil looking features. Really they are doing the people of the great state of NY a great service of forcing them to pay inflated prices for old products that have been hanging around since before the ban. anyone who has been around guns for a short period of time know those feature being eliminated aren't going to save any lives or stop any crime, but that is only my opinion.

    The term "Pre-Ban" only is significant in a few states where the state has a ban on particular firearms or accessories. Outside of those areas, it is a marketing thing and means little to nothing other than the rifle is Pre-1994.

    I've seen some guys at shows lately selling "Pre-ban" that are brand new and when people ask, they tell you they mean buy them now before there is a new ban.

    So they are like no ban pre ban lol. At first I was irritated by these guys, but idiots were rushing to their table with handfuls of cash paying 300+ more for the same stuff at a decent price 4 or 5 tables away. So I think I have to blame the buyers in this case lol.

    Pre-ban can mean a lot of things.

    Aside from some state AWBs still in place, there is also a ban on "non sporting" imported arms (aka: 9.22r) still in effect. So if you see something like a pre-ban AK or FAL then that may be what they are referring to.

    Tell us where you live, and the answers can be directed more to your situation. They are not the same for all of us.
