    building AR's only takes a few minutes. great modular weapon system (I have them in 5.56, 6.5 grendel, and even 50 BMG). minimal tools are needed, no 922r issues, just some $$$ and a little time. every now and then people bring them to our build parties for a little help and I have them up and running in no time at all.

    and the best part is it's really hard to screw it up... lol

    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...

    Yes he knew. It was a rather large gun shop in Milford Connecticut.
    He flat out said "No" assault weapons. No. Nada.
    Maybe one of our Connecticut members can tell us the law up there.
    I really dont know if you have too go through an act of Congress to own one up there.
    But I was just asking and did not bother the guy after he said no.

    Here yah go. Guess the guy was correct. No assault weapons in Connecticut.
    Sec. 53-202b. Sale or transfer of assault weapon prohibited. Class C felony. (a) (1) Any person who, within this state, distributes, transports or imports into the state, keeps for sale, or offers or exposes for sale, or who gives any assault weapon, except as provided by sections 29-37j and 53-202a to 53-202k, inclusive, and subsection (h) of section 53a-46a, shall be guilty of a class C felony and shall be sentenced to a term of imprisonment of which two years may not be suspended or reduced.

    And I always thought AR stood for Armalite Rifle and not ASSAULT RIFLE!

    AR does stand for Armalite... and a true "assault rifle" is capable of select fire. (Political definitions may vary..) So the owner was right, no assault weapons in his shop... unless he has a class 3 license?

    Centerfire Systems has the complete rifle for $599. I bought my first Colt AR-15 in 1979. Fun gun to shoot. I have put together three, easy build.----Carolyn
