folks don't realize that pre ban does exist and that ct is one of those states that does not allow the evil features on an ar unless it was built as a "rifle" before the 9/94 cutoff date. you have to make sure that the ar was a rifle and not a lower and that the rifle was on the approved list (essentially government speak for guns that they missed).
i had a bushmaster pre ban that i sold for 1500. about 3 yrs. ago while i lived in ct. moved to sc and bought a psa stripped lower for 50.00 and recreated my ar for less than 600. would i pay 1500. for a pwa or olympic lower? no thanks.
