^^^What he said. The AWB expired in 2004 and for many states there is no longer any pre ban versus post ban difference. As noted, several states either reimposed their own bans or the laws on the books in 1994 were reinstituted, such is the case in NJ.
In addition to 10-15 rnd mag capacity limits, a post ban gun will generally lack:
-flash suppressor - permanently affixed brake is ok
-collapsible stock - permanently pinned faux tactical stock are ok
Best source of info for your state would be a dealer or local law enforcement.
