I'm looking in to a new barrel for my Ruger 10/22, are threaded barrels ok if they have a muzzle break. I would not be breaking any AWB laws. it has no pistol grip, flash hider, collapsible stock, bayonet; just a muzzle comp/break.
Am I ok legally? (can't find much anywhere)

Legally what you've described is not an "assault weapon" so you don't need to worry about the AWB laws. From a practical perspective a comp will make little to no difference on a 10/22.


Semi-automatic rifles able to accept detachable magazines and two or more of the following:
  • Folding or telescoping stock
  • Pistol grip
  • Bayonet mount
  • Flash suppressor (or threaded barrel designed to accommodate one)
  • Grenade launcher

You only have one (threads) so it doesn't apply.

I'm just adding it for looks. With the hope of some day getting a suppressor (I'm dreaming, I know, but let me have my dreams)
