But that's not a chance I'm willing to take. I have some jolly roger base plates for Glock mags I use at the range, but I keep my CCW and home defense shotgun stock. I'm not saying 'don't do it' but why take the chance?
Great real world answer. Keep that stuff off your SD weapons just in case. Massad Ayoob has much courtroom experience with how prosecutors handle such things and his basic answer is the same - why take a chance, you never know how a jury will react to you so why give the prosecutor anything to use against you?
The biggest issue with assembling an AR isn't so much getting the parts together right - it's getting the right parts together.
