I don't want to muddy this up anymore but if I put a bayonet lug on my "compliant" rifle, it is then "illegal" and I would be arrested.
Also, I have always been curious as to the number of "gun related incidents" that involve law enforcement.
Living in NJ, we have strict gun laws, so strict that if your grandfather brought back from WWii an M1-carbine and it wound up in your house, you could be arrested (and probably would be).
This happened to a local law enforcement officer a few years back. The "media" story over this event curiously disappeared and I am unsure what eventually happened.
This could be considered an "illegal" gun and just possessing it is "the" crime.
