Would this be legal in CT?
« on: February 09, 2019, 05:54:20 PM »

Looking for opinions....  If an idividual owned AR's in another state, and wanted to bring them into CT, would converting them to bolt action rifles make them good to go in CT?

AFAIK no. unless it was born a bolt-action the bare lower remains an AW forever, regardless of what sort of upper goes on it.

Comgraf has converted ARs into pump actions within CT law.

The term "easily convertible" comes to mind with that drop-in bolt.
That won't work in CA or CT.

Huh? Where in the You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login does it say that?

"Any of the following specified semiautomatic centerfire rifles, or copies or duplicates thereof with the capability of any such rifles, that were in production prior to or on April 4, 2013..."

Technically all one has to do is turn the AR into a non semiautomatic rifle. Or turn it into a non centerfire semiautomatic firearm and follow the old two evil feature rule.

No idea if the "kali key" would be legal in CT. My hunch is no. I would imagine SLFU would want it to require more effort/work/machining than just pulling out the BCG and replacing it.
Potentially, a government is the most dangerous threat to man's rights: it holds a legal monopoly on the use of physical force against legally disarmed victims.

I think it would work, but I would also disable the gas system by removing the gas tube and blocking the gas port in the barrel.  In addition, you would have to divest yourself of the old parts to avoid being in possession of "(ii) A part or combination of parts designed or intended to convert a firearm into an assault weapon, as defined in subparagraph (A)(i) of this subdivision, or any combination of parts from which an assault weapon, as defined in subparagraph (A)(i) of this subdivision, may be rapidly assembled if those parts are in the possession or under the control of the same person;" which is a part of 53-202a.
