    Thanks J4. I'll double check MD law. I've been told ANY FA part for an American made rifle is considered a machine gun if the same type of rifle is even on the same property.
    It wouldn't surprise me.

    Maryland seems too have some tough laws on weapons. Are you guys allowed to own 30 round mags.
    I went into a gun store in Connecticut and asked if they had any AKs for sale.
    Everybody in the store started running. Even the owner fainted. Noooo. No assault weapons in my store. Noooooooooo.
    Damn. I think they thought I was an undercover L.O. Guess your not allowed to buy assault weapons in Conn.

    if you are in a state which don't have legal m16 carriers for semi operation.

    you can do one of two things, trade it for a semi carrier, or machine the m16 carrier to an ar-15 type configuration, all this involves is cutting the part of the carrier back that engages the auto sear to the point it can't trip the sear.

    you just as well sell or trade the 16 carrier. it should bring enough $$ to buy a new ar-15 type carrier and you won't even have to mess with it.

I'd go ahead and get a new front sight block to make drilling the two pin holes a little easier, but it could also be done with endmill. You could also just drill and tap the fsb for two set screws. The only real specialized tools you'll need is barrel nut wrench, but they're only about $15-$25 depending on which one you get. Here's one on the lower http://www.gunco.net/forums/f255/ar-...ssembly-27631/
    Hi Moleman,

    Are you set up to do Park jobs? Can you anodize AR lowers? I would rather pay you, than someone I do not know....

    Let me know.

    Bellson, I do have a parkerizing setup and have been parkerizing stuff about 12 years or so. I'm still working on getting anodizing to turn out so I'm happy with my results. I have several of the 80% ar15 lowers so I'm reading up on anodizing again and have a couple more things I want to try.

    Hi Moleman- I've got a couple of 80%ers ready to start on- If you decide to do a few, count me in. Theres a place here in town that will do them but the price is $75. Thats for 1 or 10. I only have two this time so I don't know if it's worth it. He does a great job but it's only type 2- not 3 Thanks

    Didn't he realize you were looking for a military-styled semi-automatic rifle in 7.62x39mm, and not a full-automatic 'assault rifle' in the same caliber?

    p.s. A weapons store owner who can't comprehend the difference between a semi-automatic AK-47 and a full-automatic AK-47 assault weapon should NOT be trusted...

    It gets real stupid around here w/ the gun laws, among other things.
    Md has been run by socialists for a long time. We had a republican governor awhile back but he didn't do a damn thing to try to restore the Republic.
    Now we have a marxist and the same repuplican is campaigning again.

    The law on 30's is ridiculous. You are allowed to have them and use them. You are even allowed to bring them in, I'm told.
    You are not allowed to transfer them. It is a felony.
    Here's a scenario; you and I are trudging through the back pasture to set up targets. When we get to the fence, you hand me your loaded AK so you can maneuver the barbed wire easier. We are now felons. Nice huh? The part that they really love is the fact that a felon is not eligible to own firearms.
    Disqualification by an illegal law.
