  1. Out of state long gun purchase?

    I recently purchased a rifle from a gentleman in MD. First time I have bought an out-of-state firearm. It was shipped to NH because it was not AWB compliant, and modified to ensure compliancy. The shop in NH took care of the transfer and I brought it home. Since the shop already did the...

  4. LEO Purchase: Two years before you can resell?

    I purchased a weapon as a law enforcement officer. I would like to sell/trade this item but was told when I purchased it, that I could not do so till two years have passed from the purchase date. I cannot find this specific law anywhere but I am not willing to wing it and hope for the best...
  5. WWII GI bring-back: 1935 Beretta?

    So my in-laws are migrating to Florida finally and I am helping pack and they suddenly exclaim, "Hey, you like guns right? What's this?" Out comes this old Beretta that has been kept in a sock for 60+ years. She swears up and down . . . "I was told it was a Luger!, and its a .22 cal!"...

    I am in the process of gathering the essentials to build my first AR. I have a pre-ban lower and intend to have all the "evil" features allowed.

  8. Custom AK Handguards/922R Compliant?

    Very recently I bought an AK, its is in terrific shape but I am not crazy about the cheap synthetic looking furniture it came equiped with. Its my understanding that it usually is just slapped on the weapon to ensure its 922R compliance (redirect me if I am wrong). I have a friend who is an...

  10. Human silhouettes issue

    So I discovered a really outstanding deal on targets, both paper/cardboard even plastic and 3-D type. Alot of military type stuff, some of you may be familiar with. Unfortunately M.G.L 140 Section 131a states: "Such club shall not permit shooting at targets that depict human figures, human...

  12. M&P Mag question . . .

    My buddy just picked up a NIB S&W MP9 yesterday at Four Seasons. He is also cashing in on the two free magazines promo that S&W is currently running. On the mail in rebate, you have to check the box next to what mags you want. There are a few options, and a few of them are high cap options. Can...
  13. AR help

    So I was changing my stock pistol grip for a new Hogue overmolded I just picked up. Simple enough, took off the old, made sure not to lose my safety spring blah blah blah. I set the new grip in place and tighten the nut, and it somehow crossthreads and I strip the first couple of thread...
  14. Free Floating Forearm Help

    So I picked up a new Bushmaster O.R.C recently and I am finally financially ready to upgrade this thing. My first order is adding a tactical forearm.

Also looking for some idea's and techniques/materials needed to...
  16. AR-15 Mag Dates? Pre vs. Post

    I recently visited a shop which will remain nameless and found some AR mags manufactured by Okay Industries and Center Corp. Now I was told these were "pre-ban" but I noticed they were stamped on the side of the magazine with what looked like a date, something like this: 33768 9-05 I am...
  17. Updating Pre-ban AR Mags?

    What if any are the legal issues regarding updating and altering pre-ban AR magazines. For instance, I recently purchased some and they are pretty worn out.

  18. LEO Exemptions??

  19. AK Compliance??

    I am searching desperately for an AK. I would love to find a pre-ban but am not opposed to a new one for the right price either. My question is, other than the normal MA AWB laws pertaining to the AK, is there a federal compliance also that the weapon must meet? I have noticed in alot of...
  20. Pre-ban lower with post-ban upper?

    Thanks for everyone with your help with my GSG-5 question, I assumed as much but can't hurt to ask. Especially here in good ol' MA. Another question that has been nagging me lately, and I haven't really been able to find a clear cut answer is this: If I were to purchase a pre-ban lower to an...
