I had been working on trying to get down to just a few guns, but now, time to go shopping! I recently learned that WA state is planning a ban and that people who buy before it hits will be grandfathered. First move, I ordered a couple more AR lower receivers. Not sure what I will do with them, sock drawer until I have a use. Next I'll order an AR10 lower and sock drawer that as well, in case one day I want to build one. After that it gets less clear. High capacity mags and "assault rifles" (defined with language similar to the Federal ban) will be banned if the legislation passes. So help me put together my shopping list. I need to prioritize what I can afford within likely the next year, and then I'm probably out of luck. Let's start with mags. I don't own a Glock (I own a SIG P320) but I'm going to buy Glock magazines just in case. Any other mags I should pick up? Presumably I can still pick up the pistols post ban. And then we come to semi autos. If it's based on an AR, has a pistol grip, etc, it's gonna get banned. Even m1a is gonna get banned. I think my list starts with a few AR lowers (done) followed by an AR10 and then? M1A? What should I buy? I would like to pick up one or two modern semis, maybe a piston driven AR, a SCAR, or something, but I need to be picky. Here's what's getting banned: (30) "Assault weapon" means: (a) Any of the following specific firearms or a copycat weapon, regardless of which company produced and manufactured the firearm: (i) AK-47 in all forms; (ii) AK-74 in all forms; (iii) Algimec AGM-1 type semi-auto; (iv) American Arms Spectre da Semiautomatic carbine; (v) AR15, M16, or M4 in all forms; (vi) AR 180 type semi-auto; (vii) Argentine L.S.R. semi-auto; (viii) Australian Automatic; (ix) Auto-Ordnance Thompson M1 and 1927 Semi-Automatics; (x) Barrett .50 cal light semi-auto; (xi) Barrett .50 cal M87; (xii) Barrett .50 cal M107A1; (xiii) Barrett REC7; (xiv) Beretta AR70/S70 type semi-auto; (xv) Bushmaster Carbon 15; (xvi) Bushmaster ACR; (xvii) Bushmaster XM-15; (xviii) Bushmaster MOE; (xix) Calico models M100 and M900; (xx) CETME Sporter; (xxi) CIS SR 88 type semi-auto; (xxii) Colt CAR 15; (xxiii) Daewoo K-1; (xxiv) Daewoo K-2; (xxv) Dragunov Semi-Auto; (xxvi) Fabrique Nationale FAL in all forms; (xxvii) Fabrique Nationale F2000; (xxviii) Fabrique Nationale L1A1 Sporter; (xxix) Fabrique Nationale M249S; (xxx) Fabrique Nationale PS90; (xxxi) Fabrique Nationale SCAR; (xxxii) FAMAS .223 Semi-Auto; (xxxiii) Galil; (xxxiv) Heckler & Koch G3 in all forms; (xxxv) Heckler & Koch HK-41/91; (xxxvi) Heckler & Koch HK-43/93; (xxxvii) Heckler & Koch HK94A2/3; (xxxviii) Heckler & Koch MP-5 in all forms; (xxxix) Heckler & Koch PSG-1; (xl) Heckler & Koch SL8; (xli) Heckler & Koch UMP; (xlii) Manchester Arms Commando MK-45; (xliii) Manchester Arms MK-9; (xliv) SAR-4800; (xlv) SIG AMT SG510 in all forms; (xlvi) SIG SG550 in all forms; (xlvii) SKS; (xlviii) Spectre M4; (xlix) Springfield Armory BM-59; (l) Springfield Armory G3; (li) Springfield Armory SAR-8; (lii) Springfield Armory SAR-48; (liii) Springfield Armory SAR-3; (liv) Springfield Armory M-21 Sniper; (lv) Springfield Armory M1A; (lvi) Smith & Wesson M&P 15; (lvii) Sterling Mk 1; (lviii) Sterling Mk 6/7; (lix) Steyr AUG; (lx) TNW M230; (lxi) FAMAS F11; or (lxii) Uzi 9mm carbine/rifle; (b) A semiautomatic, centerfire, or rimfire rifle that has an overall length of less than thirty inches; or c) A conversion kit, part, or combination of parts, from which an assault weapon can be assembled if those parts are in the possession or under the control of the same person.
