I'm new to ARs and all this SAFE Compliance is making my head spin. Am I allowed to buy a non-compliant AR-15, say on gunbroker for instance, as long as I remove the non-compliant parts? Or am I pretty much left to have to build my own/buy a SAFE complete.

 

Really trying to weigh out my options and I feel like the more I read, the more confused I get. I've found a few ARs online that I want buy they mostly have pistol grips and removable mags. I want to know if I can still get an FFL for something like that. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

why go through all of that headache when you can just buy a compliant AR which are sold in most places.

I'm planning on moving to a free state in the near future but wanted to buy guns now. Can the NY compliant guns be changed once I move?

DSI offers that option if you move to a free state. They will switch the N.Y. fixed model lower for a regular AR lower.

Yes. Think of AR’s like legos, you can put things on and take them off.
The only thing I’ve read is that a rifle cannot be made into a pistol, but a pistol may be made into a rifle. But if you assemble your own, how can anyone tell what it started out as?

A lot of dealers sell the gun with a mag lock in the gun followed by a small weld to prevent easily removing mag lock. Move to free state. Drill out small weld and install normal mag release

Thanks for the replies.

 

So would I be able to buy any AR15 online and have it shipped to an FFL provided I buy the necessary compliance parts aftermarket?

 

My other idea was buying all the parts separate and assembling in a free state where I have a second home, only downside is that its seemingly really difficult to get all the necessary parts together due to a lack of availability.

Your other idea is probably the best and easiest, although you only need the FFL for the receiver with the serial number.  The rest could just be shipped to your house.

If you buy a full rifle, it has to be compliant immediately. If you assemble it w compliant parts, then ship the lower to an FFL. Order the upper/other components to your home and put the compliance parts in at home.
