Default Legal Issues with AR-7?

Hi,

Quick question....does anything change legally with the AR7/Henry Survival Rifle being *disassembled* vs. assembled? Do any of the laws affect carry/transport/etc differently if it's "parts of a firearm inside a stock" vs. "an assembled firearm"?

ive often wondered if it was illegal to attach the barrel before the stock cause for a few seconds you have created a firearm from a rifle that is less than 26 oal

isn't it just ''parts'' unless it's assembled?It cant be fired when its stowed in it's stock, so why couldn't it be stowed under the seat of a jeep, or a canoe? How can it be a concealed weapon disassembled?

Great question, just like having a 100% stripped receiver. Would that be a concealed fire arm if thats all you had?

Seems to me it would be just the same. you can't fire it, even unstowed, there's no chamber, barrel, or grip, until it's assembled.

That's what I'm wondering about. I'd love to throw one (disassembled) in my backpack while hiking, or in the back seat if I were driving out in the boonies or something in that ballpark, and it *seems* like as it's not a functioning firearm unless/until assembled, it wouldn't need to be locked up.

Then again, our gun laws aren't all that rational, and I don't want to be a test case over a .22.

The problem I see is with the magazine storage. I would definitely not keep a loaded magazine in the receiver when it is disassembled. I would also be leery of keeping the magazines loaded in the stock. I think there is case law about shells in a shell holder on a shotgun as not being a loaded shotgun, but I am not a lawyer so I have no idea how a court would react to loaded mags in the stock.

Simple enough, don't load the mags, and keep the .22's in the glove box locked up in case of earthquake or other emergency.
