Duplicate? Would say no. Which AR15 on the ban list has a stock and pistol grip like that?

The SCR got by here with its palm swell. The new Kel Tec Survivor looks like a palm swell that ate its rifle.

My opinion is that once folks see the buffer tube, they are just gonna say, ”AW”, and then cite the fingers under the action portion of the AWB.

My main question is if they actually check with every state before making such bold claims?
Last I heard and unless things have changed CT does not give any opinions on what is or is not legal. They do not approve or reject any designs. The leave it up to you and your attorney to try to figure it out.

The comments aren't looking too agreeable so far.

But it will be like teaching a pig to sing, a waste of your time, and you'll only succeed in anoying the pig.

CSP is brutally vague when it comes to advice on whether any firearm is compliant or not. They contacted us directly and asked for photos and model descriptions for our CT4-2A Other. NYSP sent a resident Trooper in for an understanding on how our CT4-2A wasn’t an “assault rifle”.

State police and state employees are not allowed and heavily discouraged from giving an opinion either way. In my personal experience unless it’s on a list, like the 1994 Clinton Ban List, it’s up for interpretation and caution. Having a good attorney on retainer never hurts.

I said eff it and contacted Cobalt via email to see if they can clarify just how they got this CT approved. I’ll wait and see if they contact me back.

That’s probably the best thing you could have done. Really sucks having to play this game every time a new product is featured.

Cobalt actually replied back to me. Apparently they are going off what they feel their attorneys interpretation of CT law is. So I guess buyer beware?

Laws unclear making them unable to follow are unjust.

If you buy the lower just carry that email with you. Cops will much more than likely never question you and if they do I doubt they will think they know more than a team of lawyers hired by a firearms company. There are some good points in that email I agree with.

No worries.  If something goes wrong their attorneys will go to prison for you.
