When the buyer puts the rifle together, it is his responsibility to ensure his finished product conforms to the AWB.

So go ahead, sell the lower. Do not try to violate rights of New Yorkers any more than our governor already did.
I don't think you are right here.. You can have 1 and only 1 evil feature on your ar15.. However!!!!!!!!! He now slipped in that one of the evil features is the ability to accept a detachable magazine over 7 rds.. So if you buy a lower now and build it up with a pistol grip which is the only way than that would be an assault weapon.. I have 2 stripped lowers I got before the ban and asked 3 lGS and they all said that I can't sell them..

Personally if you sell the lower to a guy in nys and the ffl in nys does the transfer, they are at fault in my eyes that they were the ones to transfer a stripped lower... If a guy from ny goes to Florida and buys on in a store then brings it back and gets caught the Florida FFL will be in big trouble..

My advice, tell the guy to wait till end of April when te gov is served a plate of his own poop on a platter by the Supreme Court...

Here this is what I just found..

You are right on the 1 or more but since its a semi auto that can accept a detachable magazine you can have any evil features.. As of now there is no possible was to make a ar15 work without a pistol grip..

Scary thing is I just read that a foregrip cannot be readly attachable... This means that a quad rail is now illegal too!!

You are correct, it's a semi-auto that can accept detachable magazine. But since a stripped lower does not have any other evil features, it's legal to possess in NYS. Once you put a pistol grip on it, it's an assault weapon. Until then, you're GTG.

Dont think the SAFE act goes into effect until April. Either way the lower is not banned outright, only the parts that you can build on to it are.
