After shooting Uncle Sam's standard issue M16s for 20 some years I'm getting into my own AR addiction and have seen numerous posts for pre ban AR15s. A friend of mine has a full size A2 from peak ban days and it couldn't have a bayonet lug or flash supressor if I recall. You know those scary looking things not being on there really keep bad guys from doing bad things. Anyway is that the only things they did during the ban besides stop allowing new magazines that held more than 10? So now my new rifle has those things back on it. I guess it's a post ban. So what does a preban have that my new rifle doesn't? :huh: Thanks in advance for your enlightenment.
