The Gun Store, LLC is owned by a friend of mine.
They are selling "Other" firearms, that because of the way CT law is worded, have been ruled by the ATF as not an AOW.

https://www.facebook.com/thegunstorellc/posts/16446611722238 06

They are nicknamed "taters" by some because the first one that came in had a muzzle brake the size of a potato

Must be OVER 26 inches
Must have a barrel OVER 12inches, but Under 16
CT law states that the max length for a pistol barrel is 12", which is the lynch pin in this classification byt the ATF
Must use a pistol buffer (not designed to be shouldered) but braces are OK
Must HAVE a Vertical Foregrip (since pistols cannot?)

Currently TROY is making them for the retailer, and the are stamped on the bottom of the receiver on the trigger well "Classified by the ATF as an ''Other'' ".
Not required, but done by TROY, is the permanent front hinge pin; probably to keep someone from creating a situation in which they have a configuration that is in violation of the state law.

I asked about someone making their own from an 80% receiver, and they said that the state could press charges, because during the process of manufacture, the receiver itself once complete would be in violation of state law. Because TROY makes these out of state, they are ok because they are in compliance when they enter the state. So I posed the question, what if I made it out of state, and then brought it tinto the state? Well, then it would be considered an AOW and fall under the NFA. These particular 'Others' get around that because the ATF has ruled that they are OK for CT, as long as they remain in CT, and not an AOW because of the wording of the state law. I still don't know why a Federal agency would give a f**k what state law says, but I'm not going to complain about it in this instance, lol.

I feel safer already.

Laws are dumb.

Can still make from an 80%.  Install the buffer tube and pin the upper in place before milling.

Tack weld a washer to the end of the front pin, so it can't be removed.  Tack weld the steel castle nut to the end plate, so the buffer tube isn't coming out.  You could even tack weld the castle nut to the bbl if you wanted to.

With the upper permanently pinned to the front lug, milling the lower will be more difficult than normal, but not impossible.  Video the welding, then video the entire milling.  When the lower is complete, it is already in legal pistol/other firearm configuration.
