    So the AR would be a 'spike"? I take it the rest are standard semi-auto pistols which would be legal.

    tomarrow I'll look up the assault weapons act in ct which has certain criteria. Too many of certain features = prohibited assault weapon.

    Yes it looks like your standard M4 with rails. The lower receiver is manufactured by Spike's tactical. Rest of it is hodge-podge.
    I guess if it was a colt lower it wouldn't be kosher? confusing!!

    So since your m-4 rifle has a pistol grip, and a detachable magazine, you may not have a flash surpressor, bayonet lug, or folding or telescoping stock. I know of no test case on whether an adjustable stock as featured on the m-4 is considered "telescoping" but since it does not completely collapse I'd argue that it is simply multi positional and not telescoping and therefore allowable under the statute. I've never heard of anyone getting arrested for that gear in Ct.

    Because any "self-respecting" LEO would only charge these inane assault weapon bans when the weapon is actually used in a crime....of course LE attitudes vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction so shooters beware.

    Personally....if I was ever sent to your backyard range to check on "shots fired" and you were not using obviously illegal weapons...all I would ask for is a few rounds to test fire. ;)

    Its happened. The cops were more interested in talking guns than hassling us. They were pretty cool.
    And lo, Kano looked down upon the field and saw the multitudes. Amongst them were the disciples of Uesheba who were greatly vexed at his sayings. And Kano spake: "Do not be concerned with the mote in thy neighbor's eye, when verily thou hast a massive stick in thine ass".

    Lame. I cold take off the flashhider pretty easily, and replace the stock (just to be safe; however, in federal law as well as other state law, I believe the telescoping stock means exactly the stock on the M-4) but taking off the bayonet lug would mean I'd either have to get a new front sight post or grind it off.

    Yeah an M4 stock is one of those items. A solution is to set the stock to a desired length....drill a small hole through the stock and bottom of the extension tube and glue a metal pin into the hole to permanently pin the stock in place.
