Yes, an NFA firearm may have the evil features IIRC.

<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>(O6) If an NFA firearm has 2 or more of the features specified in the law for semiautomatic assault weapons, will the firearm be regulated under both statutes?

Any firearm that falls within the definition of "semiautomatic assault weapon" and the NFA definition of "firearm" is subject to both laws.[/quote]


<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>(O1) What restrictions does Federal law impose on semiautomatic assault weapons?

It is generally unlawful for a person to manufacture, transfer, or possess semiautomatic assault weapons after September 13, 1994, the effective date of the law. See the exceptions listed in Question O5.

(O5) What exceptions from the prohibitions on semiautomatic assault weapons and large capacity ammunition feeding devices are provided in the law?

Exceptions are provided for semiautomatic assault weapons and large capacity ammunition feeding devices--

(1) lawfully possessed on or before the date of enactment;

(2) manufactured for, transferred to, or possessed by governmental entities or law enforcement officers employed by governmental entities for official use;

3) transferred to licensees maintaining on-site security at a nuclear power plant required by Federal law, or possession by an employee or contractor of such licensee on-site for such purposes or off-site for purposes of licensee-authorized training or transportation of nuclear materials;

(4) transferred to law enforcement officers by the officer's agency upon the officer's retirement; and

(5) manufactured, transferred, or possessed by licensed manufacturers or licensed importers for the purposes of testing or experimentation as authorized by ATF.[/quote]


So the answer is that SBRs built on post-ban frames or out of post-ban firearms are still subject to Crime Bill restrictions as well as NFA requirements.

Hope this helps.

YEAH, all you are building is a SBR not a PREBAN.
All preban rules apply....
