NJ resident must have a pinned stock, muzzle welded and also pinned, 15 round max for mag. Where in NJ I'm in Mercer County can give you name or gun shop who was AR's in stock under $1000, Stag or MP15's

Basically every AR needs to be post-ban configuration. PSA does not market a NJ compliant upper last time I checked with them. Bushy, Stag and Windham all do. Other option is to go with a bull barrel and lo profile gas block but no 6 pos stock...that needs to be pin to a fixed position as well. Yeah, it's real tough being a gun owner in the PRNJ...

Have you about building the lower? If so, Stag, Windham Weaponry and a few other offer a post ban configuration upper and that is what you need for NJ. Not sure how close you are to Rahway but Heritage Guild gets good reviews, I personally have never been there. If you are up for a drive there is Bangers in Winslow Twp, Glouc Cnty.

Want to purchase one already built and complete. I purchased all my guns from them back when they were firearms guild. It's a very nice place. I would recommend to anyone. Service there is great!!
